MISCELLANEOUS: WRITING MISTAKES
WRITING MISTAKES Even before I was a writer, I noticed many mistakes in the writings of others. Sooooo many. Then, when I was writing for People.com, and I began to read that site daily, it made me nuts to see so many errors made by my comore
MISCELLANEOUS: I’M IN NEW YORK FOR THE NEXT MONTH
I'M IN NEW YORK FOR THE NEXT MONTH I'm happy to be in New York again, but this trip is bittersweet. This will be the end of my bi-coastal way of life, that I've had since I was a teen-ager. In my late teens, I went to L.A., which was jmore

MISCELLANEOUS: WELCOME 2013!
WELCOME 2013! Even though I'm a major harker-backer, (which is great sometimes, but annoying the rest,) I really would rather always look forward, with optimism. (Actually, I mainly try to love in the present, but often that's not so easymore
MISCELLANEOUS: ONE YEAR SINCE MY MOTHER PASSED
ONE YEAR SINCE MY MOTHER PASSED [Note: this is my last maudlin column—I swear! It's just this time of year that's made me like this!] I really didn't want to bring everyone down on actual Xmas Day, but I'd be re-miss if I didn't acknmore
MISCELLANEOUS: NEWTOWN TRAGEDY
NEWTOWN TRAGEDY I'm writing this while in the deep throes of the flu, so it may not be my best writing. But I feel the need to acknowledge what happened this past Friday in Newtown, Connecticut. I have no flowery words to make anyone fmore
