December Fourth.

Yesterday, I sent my first press release into the wild via a new channel. In the past, they have always been given directly to the media outlet of our choosing, exclusively giving whatever message we want to convey to a real human person. This time, I simply uploaded it to a website, scared out of […]

Drafts.

I have been absent from this blog for awhile, but not totally on purpose. Yes, life has been busy, but I constantly think about writing. My brain is wired to think in the form of a journal entry, for better or worse. Today I am going to share some drafts I have started in the […]

Blue Jeans.
