I recently began watching "The Wire" (yes, I realize I'm 12 years late), and I love it! So far it has lived up to the hype. It also gave me a good idea for this blog post. In one of the early episodes, one of the main characters (a police officer) spends a lot of time preparing a report about possible criminal activity at a housing project in Baltimore, and then presents it to a judge in hopes of gaining authorization for a wiretap. In this particular scene, we see the police officer sitting anxiously in his chair, so proud of all his hard work, just waiting for a pat on the back from the judge for following a very specific list of legal requirements to get what he really needs to stop the bad guys.
What does the judge do…Continue
Or you can take four do-able steps that will help you create time by reducing distractions, eliminating time-wasters, and getting you into writing mode quickly. I’ve worked with dozens of coaching clients who were struggling to find time to write, and this four-step process has never failed.
1. Compartmentalize. Yourdictionary.com defines “compartment” as a separate section, part, division, or category. I use the term compartmentalize to mean creating a distinct part of your life for writing. A compartment is a…Continue
I grew up as the peace-keeper middle child, wanting everyone to get along. I don’t like to ruffle feathers or stir the pot. And if conflict does happen, I’m the one who plays mediator, ensuring everyone’s viewpoint is heard.
This all comes from my desire to be liked. I really want people to like me. And yet I also have an intense need to be authentic, which creates inner tension for me. If people really knew the Real Me would I still be liked? Admired? Respected? For years I thought the answer was No, so I kept secrets about parts of myself.
So why did I decide to reveal two of my biggest secrets in my memoir, A Leg to Stand On? Perhaps being a contributor to the anthology Dancing at the Shame Prom (Seal Press, 2012) made me think twice—three times—about the shame I…Continue

In my grandparents’ dining room in a suburb of Boston, there was a shelf devoted to the books by our family members. My grandfather was a poet—a witty, brilliant one, but also humble and unpractical, and so although there should have been many by him, there was only one book with his name on it, a delightful volume of light verse titled Shrinklits. Then there were books by my uncle…Continue
Each and every personal injury lawyer - good, bad or any other - must perform according to time limits forced by laws in the specific state wherein they work.
Commonly concerned to as a law of Limitations, such time period determines the capacity of an injured one to start legal proceeding against a supposed negligent party in the first run: the case must be considered in the time period defined or the claim is unable to be recovered.
I asked myself this morning what I am doing with my life? So far, I haven't gotten an answer back yet.
I asked myself if I was happy. For me that's a pretty easy one, "yes".
But being happy, isn't the same as knowing what you are doing. Is it?
Going over the checklist of a so called successful life, I'm looking pretty good.
Nice house, check. Good, kind, faithful, nice looking husband, check. Successful, not in trouble kids, check. No health…
Every tourist or traveler likes to get pleasure from the luxuries of life, particularly when it comes to road transport.

This involves thousands of passengers to land in Baltimore-Washington area and leaves from here. Some of the passengers take…
in a corner, she hopes
people will see her, talk to her.
do they understand the question,
can they spell her name?
she is not for sale really, though price

the bandage, the blood and the book.
some of us love her and have ordered
another measuring stick.
What is humor anyway? Is it frivolous to write it?
I know people can twist everything, even humor, but I’m talking about the good stuff.
I don’t often write humor per se,…
