Learn Scrivener From Me – New Online Classes


You’ve heard all your writer friends talking about it. Scrivener. Now you’re curious, but afraid to take the plunge. Word kinda works for you. Plus, you have a system. A routine. Breaking out of that routine is a little scary.

No, I Won’t Get You Lunch Today


Okay – I really want to blog about the awesomeness that was the Pikes Peak Writers Conference, 2014, but that requires more time than I have today for blogging – so instead, I’m gonna talk about being the lunch person.…

The Grow House


Across the street from where I work is a nondescript building with boarded up windows and a heavy-looking door with deadbolt locks and giant padlocks.  It’s a grow house, a place where they grow mj legally for the Colorado retail…

The Gym?


When I was in high school, one year my P.E. class spent quite a lot of time in the gym.  The idea was to teach us about the various equipment, how to use it, and how to work out. The…
