Who’s the April Fool?

So yesterday The Mighty published one of my essays, a bit about living with invisible illness.  That’s considered non-fiction rather than fiction.  I’ve spent almost 40 years learning how to write fiction, so I guess the joke’s on me this year.  But hey, it’s another notch to add to my list of credits.

Mine. (Again.)

People always ask: “What kind of books do you like to read? What kind of movies do you watch? TV shows? What music do you listen to?” I say good ones. I don’t go for genres. I don’t like sitcoms as a rule, but once in a while I find one I like. I don’t […]

Nope. The end.

Resolution time again.  And since my resolutions last year turned out so well (not!), I figured I’d try it again this year.  I only have 2 this year, aside from the ones I never tell anybody.  1. Keep posting to the blog. It’s good for my mental health and it keeps me writing. Instead of […]
