New Years Resolution: be my own megaphone

January 7, 2012 | 0 Comments

I’m no good at promoting myself. Never have been. It’s not that I don’t value my own work–it’s that I’d rather other people like it and do the advertising/word of mouth/buzz for me. I don’t know if it’s modesty that keeps me from pushing my brand, or [...continue...]

November 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

I’m casting about for what to say right now and it’s not coming easily. I feel like no matter what I end up writing down will come out wrong and upset someone out there. But if I don’t try to write about this I’ll be upset. So I guess it’s worth a shot. I don’t [...continue...]

Oh, Naomi. We are gonna just keep doing this, aren’t we? Ah, well, why not? After all, every superhero needs a supervillain in order to really thrive. I’m not sure, in this situation, which one is which, but we’re surely diametrically opposed, and I know I’m super, so we may as well get [...continue...]
