A Can’t get Enough Week

I’ve told you almost nothing about Guatemala other than the volcanos didn’t blow while I was there. I’ve kept it to myself (for over a week) not ready to share.

Huffpo – Make me or Break me

Ever since the Huffington Post invited me to spend my precious unpaid time writing for them, no guarantee of publication, my life has been thrown into a tailspin.

Eat, love, write – then pray

While writing about writing is still writing I thought I’d describe what else I’m writing. It's a memoir made up of short stories that aim to capture the humour, heartache and universality of changing directions, missing clear signs and making and repeating silly choices. It tracks the adventures and misadventures of my heart, on road and off-road. I know it sounds a bit self-helpish but that’s NOT the intention.

Pull up a seat

When I first decided to take a year off to write I figured now there’s something people might be interested in. I should propose to the Globe and Mail, the Star, even the Post, to write a weekly column about the trials and tribulations of one bureaucrat (with A.D.D) trying to get started as a writer. It would be like reality TV, The Biggest Loser, that sort of thing and at the end you’d find out if it worked or not and whether any publisher was remotely interested in what I was doing.
