Writing Break

I’ve finished a 380 page memoir about my family. I didn’t plan on that… The original plan was to write a 100 page “memoir” that, primarily, answered the one big question — what the fuck was up with your parents, Nacho? Initially, I did write this 100 page version. A sort of outline of what […]

Two Novels and a Baby (August 7th)

My old college buddy James had really toned down over the last couple years. He’d gotten himself sober, married a girl named Marcie, and started on a weirdly responsible career ladder.  I hadn’t seen much of him since he announced Marcie’s pregnancy. His life entered one of those phases I equate to the turning of […]

The Big Slump

I’m in a writing slump.  Not really writer’s block, just a slump.  Never prepared and out of energy.  The end of Daylight Savings time always gets to me.  I hate that it gets dark before I’ve even left work.  I hate that it leaves me confused about what time it is later in the evening, […]
