The Accidental Blogger Returns!

Wow, things have been hectic lately! I can’t believe I’ve taken an (unintentional) break from blogging for the past five months; it seems like only yesterday when I posted pictures of my film premiere. In addition to immersing myself into a job as an academic advisor, I’ve officially become online associate faculty at Ashford University, where I teach English, Communication, Writing and Library Research.

Working two jobs isn’t easy, but I still try to stay involved with my writing. After its Hollywood premiere in April, Le Chapeau had its official festival premiere at Hollyshorts Film Festival in August. My latest short film, Dessert & Suicide,  a comedy about blind dates, is now in post-production. Additionally, I am working on two novels (who knows if I’ll ever finish them), a short story, and have been chosen as one of the writers on Season 2 of an upcoming sci-fi web series, Look Up in the Sky. This is thanks to the amazing producing (and acting) talent of Ashley Cozine.

I hope to update more frequently. Until then, WRITE ON!

The Writing Workshop for Dummies

Today I celebrate the publication of my pedagogy paper, The Writing Workshop for Dummies: how the new teacher can mentor first-time writing students, which was recently published by the University of Gloucestershire. I wrote it a few of years ago, during my Creative Writing MFA program at National University, and slightly revised it based on notes from the University.

The paper was one of seven selected and is also available online. It can be read here.

Feedback, as always, is welcome and appreciated. Enjoy!
