I’m teaching myself to slow down from a project perspective. I have a lot of ideas I want to work on, to execute, but there are no deadlines that provide that focus needed to get something done. I jump back and forth, though I haven’t focused on the Jesus Christ, Boy Detective series, which I needed a break from. I have to remind myself to be patient and just work on things as the ideas come.


I did “Celebrating Our Failures” again for PechaKucha Night v10 at the 2013 Orlando Fringe Festival. I wasn’t as nervous as I was when I did the talk for the first time in February, and I threw new elements into this iteration. It’s a tremendously challenging, fun narrative device. If you have a PechaKucha night in your city, throw your name in the hat some time. 

A while ago when I was focused on my relationship-destroying-pay-it-forward story cycle, I wrote a storyboard for a PechaKucha deck, which you can read here. Now that I know what it takes to storyboard, create a compelling deck, and perform with said deck, I’d like to turn this or something else into a PechaKucha friendly format.


Next Thursday, I’ll be here (in NYC). If you are in NYC, come see this kickass show.



This is coming. Soon. Really soon. You might come before it does. 


Finally, I have some flash fiction over at Cease, Cows, which you can check out here.
