I'm working on rolling out a series of guides for authors under DIY Writing - Starting an Email Newsletter, Building an Online Community, Blogging for Writers, and How to Publish YOUR Ebook. These guides collate all the information and lessons I've learned through running Writer's Bucket List, talking to readers, and coaching for the past four years.

Concurrently, I'm continuing my series of essay collections. In January, I re-issued my first two books with updates: Welcome to the Shit Show, and Strangers (originally The Hart Compound). This year, I'm finishing the pieces for my third collection and preparing to publish it with a big release late 2015 or early 2016.(less)

I expect to write every day, and if I don't, it's simply because I didn't write. If I can't think of anything to write, I write about not having anything to write - that seems to remind my brain and hands that I know how to string words together, and that will kickstart some kind of creativity.(less)

Did you miss this week’s newsletter? After sharing the story of how I got my unexpected dream job, I’ve received such a wonderful response!

I’m losing the urge to publish every fleeting thought, revelation, or bit of advice. So this blog is probably going to stay a little quiet but for brief news updates. If you want to stay in touch and keep up with what I’m writing and doing, subscribe to the...

“If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.”
