IT'S APRIL, Y'ALL

It's taken me until today to realize I hadn't posted in the "NEWS" section of this website, so apologies if you've been waiting with baited breath.

Here are a few things I've been working on:

  1. A newsletter! It's called Rough Drafts, and is a once-in-a-while newsletter (posted the first one back in February, none since! I'm on a roll) generally covering: "Great things to read, non-sponsored product endorsements, things I've written or #amwriting, living slowly, minimalism, writing life, working better, creative industry goings-on, freelance life, travel and generally, whatever the Hell else I'm up to."
  2. Freelancing! After being laid off in June 2018, I spent a lot of time reorganizing my life and preparing to join the freelance workforce. It's a world, man. Specifically, I did a lot of work for Southern Fried Design Barn here in Nashville (for example, the product pic you see within this post). Owner/designer Amy is a former co-worker of mine at CMT and established this business when she was here. I'm knocked out by how much it's grown (she now works for herself full time) and it's been an eye-opening experience into the world of self-employment.
  3. Bookstagramming? It's true. Last month, I created an Instagram account with the specific purpose of 'gramming about books. I didn't realize it was it's own microcosm until it overwhelmed my personal 'gram. Basically, I'm publishing stylized pictures of books I read, have read or am interested in reading. Feel free to give it a follow.

I'll be updating the site soon with more specific things I've written and produced and what's on the slate coming up.
