In this podcast episode, I visit with Jackie and Bill again. We discuss what it is like to write about the people we love, and how it affects them. Jackie is currently working on a (second) memoir and I’ve written lots of autobiographical-sounding fiction (along with a few essays). So apparently we can easily bullshit about this subject for over an hour. (I edited it down to 65 minutes.) It was again great to have Bill’s perspective so he could chime in on how it felt to be written about, even in cases that weren’t necessarily flattering. Give it a listen…
As is my tendency, let me start out with the bad: the new iPhone 6 Plus is big and awkward and confusing to get around with. Living with this thing is weird and requires me to walk around in shame with a dreaded man purse. Even so, I am keeping this damn thing. It is the best mobile device I’ve ever used for writing.
In this podcast episode, I take the Neurotic Tornado show on the road. 😣🌀
I visit with my friends Jackie and Bill to talk about a writer’s need for alone time, and how that goes over with the writer’s partner…
Here’s a video about my attic, which is where I do most of my creative(ish) work. I hope you’ll agree with me (and not with my misguided wife!) that I have a real system to how I do things around here. I mean, it’s not so messy. Right? Right???

This is the fifteenth podcast episode my wife and I have done together. So in this episode, we talk about how the podcast has affected our relationship. It has caused some ups and downs, with more ups than downs. We also talk about how you too can reap the benefits of this experience, without having to be foolish enough to start your own podcast to discuss your relationship issues.
So I’ve been re-publishing a few of my published stories on medium.com this month. Medium can be described as many things, but one thing it is… is a site that looks beautiful where people can self-publish their writing. It has been on my mind to do this, because many websites – even sites that post amazing content – are not so pretty. Either they are poorly designed or they have intrusive advertising or something else. I have no grand plans here, I just thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite stories on this uncluttered site so a few people could read and enjoy them. Or at least if they don’t enjoy them – it is entirely my fault. So here they are, in case you want to check them out. Most are quite short…
— WHEN MY BODY SMASHED INTO THE SIDEWALK on medium.com
— HEAVEN on medium.com
— BLUE on medium.com
— GOD AND BUSES on medium.com
In this podcast episode, my wife and I talk about jealousy — her jealousy of me and my jealousy of her. Although a certain amount of jealousy is allowed in our relationship, are we jealous enough???
In this podcast episode, my wife and I analyze why we both typically prefer to talk with women more than men. This isn’t an across the board thing though – we both have close male friends – and so we try to untangle why it’s that way. Hopefully no genders were harmed in the making of this podcast. (Also, I apologize for the ridiculous GarageBand loopy thing at the end.)
In this podcast episode, we actually try to talk about our sex life – or at least our struggle with getting sex into our busy lives. WARNING: This discussion is not so sexy.
By the way, I reference my awkward TIME-BASED SEX video in this discussion, in case you want to check that out first.
OK. Now I’m blushing.
In this podcast episode, we talk about resentment. Or at least we try to talk about resentment — a little bit of my resentment and a little bit of my wife’s resentment. We bicker about our messy home. You’ll also learn a brilliant (or horrifying) technique for saving time when folding (or not folding) your laundry.
