The Homo Superior

The Homo Superior

Warning. This is going to get maudlin. I didn’t write about David Bowie on Monday. Not much. I shared some songs with other fans who were grieving. I posted errant comments about this video, that concert, this picture, that memory. But I didn’t write anything. I didn’t even think about writing anything. It was like […]

Comma, Comma, Comma, Chameleon

Comma, Comma, Comma, Chameleon

Ah, the comma. Arch-nemesis of writers. I think I know all the rules on commas until I start writing. Then I start throwing commas around like confetti, and half of them don’t land where they belong. I’m getting better at it, but there are specific instances I always have to stop and look up.

Ten Things About My Writing

Ten Things About My Writing

I can write anywhere, anytime as long as nobody knows I’m writing. If someone in my house sneaks up behind me, I’ll switch […]
