If you could tell your younger self to do one thing differently…

Yes, nearly a year and a half has passed since my previous post. There are two main reasons for this. One, I am terrible at keeping this site updated. I am trying to do better, but I feel that unless have something worth posting, I’m not going to waste anyone’s time, my own included, to post emptiness. Secondly, I have been working hard on my fiction, and “add new post to website” has sat on my to-do list, gathering dust.

Have you ever wondered how your life would be different if you could tell your younger self to make one different choice? Of course you have! Everyone has! Several years ago, I took this idea and it became a short story, one I am incredibly proud of. A high school freshman has a very common assignment– to write a letter to his future self, to be read after high school graduation. But temptation gets the best of him, and he opens the letter early. To his surprise, his older self has written back! The younger and older selves write back and forth to one another, and their correspondence changes the course of both of their lives.

The story took more than five years of submission before finding a home. It was a finalist for the Arcturus Review Fall Fiction Contest. Read it for free here, and leave your comments below!

Working Through the Suck

Ira Glass explains briefly and brilliantly why beginning artists quit so often and so soon. Watch it here:

This aspect of creative life is so rarely discussed openly. Experienced artists and teachers will talk about the joy of creating, and maybe about the struggle of creating, but rarely about the gap between ambition and ability, which is pronounced in the beginner.
