Here Are Other Things I Have Written Because I Am Not Here Often

I've heard from a few people who are annoyed that I don't update this blog very often. Sorry! I'm trying to do too much and can't make it over here as much as I'd like.

If you came across this site and want to check out more of my writing, though, I've put a few highlights below.

Eventually, I'll be switching over to a tumblr site and doing a bit more of my own thing, as soon as I can get rid of this infernal thing called a day job (ha! Don't hold your breath. Unless you want to offer me a writing or teaching day job. I would love you if you did that. Seriously.)

In the meantime, here are more things I have written that are on the Internets!

"Shock and Awe" An essay at Guernica Magazine on working with veterans at the VA in Palo Alto who suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury.

"An Interview with Lance Corporal Jason Poole" at The Splinter Generation, which is an interview with one of these veterans.

"I Love Your Lies," a short essay/blog on the importance of storytelling.

"If We Try, We Can All Push California Into the Ocean." A look at why California is so screwed up.

"Can't Tell Me Nothing." In which I tell Kanye West to go to hell.

"More Crappy News for Short Story Writers," which asks why the hell we can't make money off these things.

Some thoughts on Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy

I write fiction, too, but it's not online yet. Maybe it will be soon.
