It's been a long time since I've updated! I've been busy with life, and haven't had time to write. I've been working as a freelance copywriter for a Marketing company in Florida for a while now. I've been writing Press Releases, Blog Articles, Email Drips, a Q&A, FAQ, etc. It's good work and I enjoy it - for the most part. I enjoy the blog articles the most, but also like doing the press releases.

I've been thinking a lot about brains lately. I'll get to the zombies in a bit; first I wanna talk about brains. If that bores you just skip it.
The human mind is an amazing thing. The way it works - or doesn't work - is fascinating.
Brains are like…

When I feel discouraged, I remember an accomplishment. This could be moving to a new area and taking risks to learn the town and meet people. Or it could mean publication or a kind word from someone.
As I am sending out my writing again, I will inevitably face more rejections/disappointments. It helps to remember that my book was a finalist in the 2011 Emergency Press International Book Contest.

My dog Susie says...
Life's little stresses
Last week I barked about taking your dog to work and its benefits. Well, how about other places that pets help humans: like school? In colleges from Atlanta to San Francisco counseling centers are using dogs to reduce…Continue

I'm writing my sections of this proposed novel non-linearly. That frees me up creatively in a way that a A-Z rendering of the facts would not.
The Nicer the Nice, The Higher the Price
It’s difficult to pinpoint my first manic episode. The most effective psychiatrist…

Most young people aspire to a higher education. It is considered to be the ticket to a fulfilling and prosperous life. This was their dream since they were little. The schools religiously prepare them for this moment for years. The social pressure is enormous. In their mind, a college degree is the only way forward - they want it at any cost.
As tuition fees soar, student debt accumulates. In order to pursue a bachelor's degree almost everybody is getting a…Continue

I didn’t have my first laptop or mobile phone until I was at university. Many things have changed during the past 20 years; many more will change over the next twenty years as we live in a rapidly evolving society. A profession that has provided good prospects until now might be redundant by 2025 (or even earlier). When you assess your career options, you need to use the lens of the future and not the past.
It is impossible, of course, to predict exactly what will…Continue

You read correctly. "What are you prepared to lose to get a college degree?"
I was at a convention last week where hundreds of students had the opportunity to talk to representatives of various colleges. I talked to a number of teenagers. Here is a snapshot from a typical conversation:
