Do I still have it? Do I still have the chops? or have I been writing too much sports news? Or will I really be able to let go and tap into my creativity? Are all my great writing days behind me? Was I good because my inhibitions, and anxious thoughts were tampered thanks to… Continue reading Do I Still Have It?
I am part of a yet another new blog-venture in the wide world of sports. The website is aptly named Not Your Average Sports Chick. Alicia Seymour, originally from the East Coast, but currently on the West Coast, started the website. I responded to a post Alicia posted on Craigslist for writers. She thought my… Continue reading Not Your Average Sports Chick
I took a trip up to Londonderry, NH for a doctor’s appointment. The house that Robert Frost’s father, William, purchased for him and his first wife, Ilinor is located only 10 minutes away in Derry, NH. It was a working farm which Robert maintained for a few years during the years he lived there between… Continue reading A Trip to Robert Frost Farm
I was at the family homestead for an overnight on Sunday. It snowed overnight and we woke up to beautiful, wet snow frozen to the tree branches. It reminded me of the poem I wrote in 1998, published in the Duxbury Clipper in 1999, for a Freshman level poetry class. 98% of the class… Continue reading Late #ThrowbackSunday: The Bog

I sat in the back of the room, looked around at all the artworks on the walls and the display case I carefully set up Tuesday night. All the snags and glitches that come with a big project all fell away. I thought, “what must it be like to come and see your own books,… Continue reading Archives, Exhibitions, and motive magazine
I made a big mistake and published a blog meant for another location. (I fixed it and is now gone.) Some people out there may learn something about me that I may not have wanted to share under my actual, real name. Sometimes I care, sometimes I do not care about what gets published here.… Continue reading What’s The Big Idea?
I can’t believe I did it. I applied to NBCUniversal to be a comedy writer. Well, not exactly. I applied to be accepted to a workshop that would take place in New York City at 30 Rockefeller Center In March 2015. I have not heard back yet. What I do know for certain is another… Continue reading I Applied to NBC to Be A Comedy Writer
I have not posted in quite a long time. I hope to have more time to contribute to this blog (and some of my other ones) in the weeks and months. For now, please enjoy this delicious poem written by Anne Sexton that someone passed along to me. It is the perfect poem for this… Continue reading Giving Thanks for Each Morning
Someone posted this on Twitter today. I love it! There are so many lies we tell ourselves that we cannot even keep them straight (“I’m fat.” “My nose is too big.” “My thighs are flabby.”) Moreover, and much worse, we begin to believe those lies and turn to negative influences to… Continue reading You are what you believe…
