The older I get the more I feel like I repeat myself. It’s a weird feeling as a writer, especially if you’ve written a ton of stuff and haven’t organized it very well. You start to ask yourself: Did I already write about that? Have I said that before? Twice? Three times??

And then the third thing to pop into my head was: That would be a really funny joke to make it look like he read my book. Ha! Continue reading It was a joke…→
Sheesh. The last time I updated this thing was over two months ago…suffice to say I’ve been busy. I’ve been so busy in fact that I probably shouldn’t be bothering with the blog just yet but I had a moment and one thing led to another and now here I am saying hello for a brief moment.
