Why Writer’s Block is Bullshit

  Write about your struggles. Because if you can’t write, you’re struggling.   And it’s probably not something pretty, either. You’re not writing about IT because you don’t want to face IT. And, yet… that is the key to the door that you’ve been hanging around, pacing, for what seems like forever-and-a-half. It doesn’t mean…

Making Magic at the Bank (of course this story involves a woman)

  Don’t worry… I didn’t rob it. But I did break an old pattern today. Usually, when I cross paths with a beautiful woman, who happens to be a complete stranger, I don’t know what to say. On a good day, I’ll smile and say, “hey,” and then quickly go back to staring at my…

California

  For most of my adult life I felt like, eventually, I would end up living in California. At least for a while. Well, here I am. And what a circuitous path it has taken to get here! Short recap: Lived in Atlanta for 10 years. Felt blah. Realized I wasn’t growing. Called my bro…
