I was awake when my alarm went off at 6:45 a.m. and I thought to myself, “Why did I think it was a good idea to set an alarm for 6:45?” I didn’t hit the snooze button and try to fall back to sleep, though. Instead, I picked up my phone as I rolled out … Continue reading Seeing the world in a different light
It usually starts some time in November when I take Stephen King’s memoir/instruction manual “On Writing” off my book shelf to re-read it. I’ve read this book toward the end of the year each of the last three or four years because I enjoy the way King tells his story and I hope it will … Continue reading You win some, you lose some
