A few things I’ve written recently

“The Big Three Oh” with Angie Liang for Just Between Us

In 2015, Angie and Kristan turned 30. The milestone was both more and less momentous than they expected…

“How to Buy Your First House” for Just Between Us

Step 1: Convince yourself that you do not need a house. Your 2-bed, 2-bath condo has plenty of space. You and your husband never even go into the spare room. You only have guests a few times a year, you hardly cook, and you have no kids. (Unless you count your dog…) The condo is fine. You do not need a house.

Step 2: Start browsing real estate websites anyway.

“What’s in Your Bag of Tricks?” for Writer Unboxed

Since I was about 9 years old, all I’ve wanted is to be a writer. Some of my strongest memories are of sitting in my own little room at my parents’ print shop, surrounded by filing cabinets and spare computer parts and dusty paper samples, filling the hours between school and dinner by scribbling stories into notebooks. Back then, the words seemed to flow so easily, like water, like magic. Now? Not so much.

  1. I agree about “success” — we’re trained about it in so many ways, both about what it means and how important it is.

    The minute you start to define it for yourself, it’s like a weight falling away — a weight you weren’t even aware of when it was there.

    And, yes, writing by hand, absolutely. :-)

      Well put. :)
