The Fairy Apocalypse

I’m new to the Walking Dead show, though I read the comics years ago. I binge-watched as much as I could the last two weeks so I could enjoy last night’s mid-season premiere. The show is excellent (though highly depressing and gory – much like my beloved Game of Thrones) and watching ¬†Carl rediscover some of the pudding-and-books delights of suburban living, made me realize A) I would never survive the zombie-world order without some Pantene and running water and B) Why is it ALWAYS…

Do we need another hero?

In moving forward in a couple of writing projects, I have been stalled several times and found myself asking,”Why? Why now? Why now, when I clearly need to get some things finished, become rich and famous and buy the house next door so I can knock it down and make a two-story pool that gets me into Architectural Digest and Tina Turner sees it and contacts me so we can become best friends and hang out all the time and re-enact 80s videos together?” Perhaps…
