Admission of Hypocritical Guilt

October 30th, 2022 I completed my self-assigned course on the history of philosophy tonight, and as I turned the last pages in the final book of my “class,” my stomach did a turn, as well. I made a terrible realization. I’ve written about philosophy several times lately; namely, how stupid it is. This is whyContinue reading “Admission of Hypocritical Guilt”

On The Ground

October 10th, 2022 I just read an essay in which the writer was feeling paralyzed with fear because she felt as though she was living in the shadow of her audience’s expectations of her; she knows she can’t be the best of herself at all times, and people want to believe that you are theContinue reading “On The Ground”

NerdinOut Con 2022 Day 1

October 8th, 2022 Holy cats, Rochester, you showed up today. One of the first things I saw was a young boy with his dad.

Accessible Excellence

August 18th, 2022 The most common thing said about my books comes across as backhanded, but I’ve come to realize it aligns with what I want to do as a writer so completely. The song goes: “I am not a big reader, but I really liked your book.” Usually followed by the encore of: “IContinue reading “Accessible Excellence”

Cold World Trailer

August 15th, 2022 It has not been a cold summer, but for my readers, it has been a Cold World summer.

Negative Space

July 24th, 2022 Criticism isn’t fun. It can be helpful, though. But it’s also stupid and people should mind their own business. I had to understand why I felt this way. And I realized it wasn’t about criticism. It was, as the whole universe is, about balance. People talk shit. It’s just a fact ofContinue reading “Negative Space”

Introduction v.2022

July 20th, 2022 How does a person get another person to like them the first time they meet? That’s what required of us when we write these stupid distillations of ourselves. If you hate me two sentences in, then I lose you. Definitely for the moment, most likely for today, and possibly forever. No pressure.Continue reading “Introduction v.2022”
