The Little Victories

4th June 2017 by admin No Comments

Once upon a time, I was young and I had big dreams, plans and schemes to change the world. Now I feel like I’ve won some kind of contest when I can remember to get my grocery bags out of the trunk before I walk in the store. Little victories, you see. Bookmark on Delicious […]

Flip or Flop or Flap

5th September 2016 by admin No Comments

I spent last night watching an HGTV Show where this couple buys houses in California for hundreds of thousands of dollars and flips them for a profit. Makes me wish they had one of those shows in Kentucky where I live. “We bought the house at auction for fourteen thousand, and we redid the kitchen, […]

Getting a rejection notice from an agent you had forgotten you sent a query to is like stepping on a mine from the Korean War.

Gig Bagged

8th July 2015 by admin No Comments

Writing gigs this week…12,000 words on high school football…finished. Final score, 1300 Coaching Cliches, 143 players with upside who are great athletes and real leaders, 63 bottles of water, 29 episodes of Gossip Girl watched in the background, and 1 bout with stomach flu. Just to make things more interesting, I also threw in a […]

I’m The Map!

26th January 2015 by admin No Comments

Just out of curiosity, I took this quiz on a website to show how many states in the USA I’ve visited.  Not bad, although ten years ago, it would have been much more sparse. Looking at this, it makes me look forward to the travel book, “I Hate It Here.” Lots of good stories coming in that […]

The Rundown

My morning run was especially exhilarating today! Since it’s 19°, that run was to the bathroom and back to bed. Which is the most rewarding exercise I’ve had in a while.

Low Society

9th November 2014 by admin No Comments

Since I don’t really know anyone in Cincinnati, I joined a county-wide Facebook group. After one week of listening to them, I’ve decided that instead of cheering for the Reds or Bengals, I’m just going to root for meth lab explosions.
