You’re doing great, sweetie!

Today, I turned 50 years old. For a long time, this has been my sort of “countdown clock” to have all the things accomplished that are important to me like… Buying a house… Finding a literary agent who sees my potential… Being fit and active… And so forth. As you

Social Media Depression

New research examines the link between social media and depression. Millennials are getting hit the hardest. The term “millennial” is bantered around (usually with disdain) in the media. It’s become a catch-all phrase that means “a person or group younger than me – especially if I don’t agree with them.”

How You Doin’?

I’ve been working hard reorganizing my “creative” life. Thinking big thoughts and making plans. Enough about me. How do you feel? How is life going today? Are you okay? Often, people get so busy with their own craziness that they forget to check in with those around them. The daily
