Checking In from the Balcony


Portland, OR :: So, I’ve had a lot going on these last few weeks. Jordan and I relaunched the main site for Burnside. I am writing a longish profile of an author for the January/February issue of Relevant, along with two short book reviews. I also signed a contract recently (with two co-authors) to write a book with a title I can’t tell you on a topic I can’t divulge for a publisher who will remain anonymous. All this on top of grant writing, which has been sporadic.

The manuscript for the book is due at the end of February, just before Kate and Molly and I head east. The profile and the book reviews will be done next week. I will have a few other assignments for the month of November, but nothing major. I should soon be able to settle back into a routine of writing for On the Narrow Road.

I appreciate Kate’s posts. She is picking up the slack on the blog, as at home, so I can get all my writing done. Thank you, sweetheart.

In other news, it’s good to be back in Portland for the evening, sitting next to Dave on our bench at 39th and Sandy Starbucks, heckling the baristas (Natalie and Ashley) like Statler and Waldorf in the Muppets. I’m going to Jon R.’s house later for a party sponsored by Tostino’s (Pizza Rolls and nacho cheese) and farewell butt-kicking in Halo.

Check Out the New Digs


The Burnside Writers Collective just launched it’s new site at a new address. I serve as Deputy Editor for the online magazine, and we are moving from a weekly to a daily publishing format. Beginning in October, I will be writing a regular column for the Writers Collective based on this blog.

Reflections on 9/11

Portland, OR :: Relevant Magazine asked me and a few other Burnside Writers Collective writers to briefly reflect back on the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and their aftermath. The article appeared today on Relevant’s website. It includes a short essay from Dave Johnson, but it doesn’t include a link to Dave’s blog, which is here.
