Anyway, I'm back. Trying to get into the pattern of writing these blogs again.
Just some updates might be the best way to start...
1. I'm getting ready now - at a coffee shop in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago - for a performance, a reading at Stage 773 for the storytelling series "Here's the Story."
2. Been involved with a number of the reading/storytelling events - Story Club, This Much is True, Essay Fiesta. Wonderful stuff!
3. New short-short story collection is out - AFTER OPIUM. Kindle version now; paperback soon to come. Please check it out...
4. I'm involved in a great new storytelling venture called "Cowbird." The website - www.cowbird.com - is a small group - although international - of storytellers. Check it out. It's a beautiful site.
5. I have to run - to get to Stage 773. I'm going to try super hard to stay on top of his blog. :)
