The Eerie Similarities Between My 2016 Writing Goals and the Election

My goals for writing in 2016 could apply to the presidential campaign.

It all ends up as wrapping paper.
  • Don't go negative.
  • Honesty is good but is also isn't pretty. Or particularly uplifting.
  • Wear better clothes while working.
  • A lot of people think they want this job. They're kidding themselves.
  • Polish up the body armour. You're gonna need it.
  • Where did all the money go?
  • You'll know who your friends are when the shit goes down.
  • Never let them see behind the curtain.
  • Don't trip.
  • Hey, if Trump can bluster...
  • Make them wonder. Make them love you.
  • Keep your eye on the finish.
  • Remember, no one ever makes money doing this. You have to be a little crazy.
  • You're better off playing the lottery, but it isn't as much fun.
  • Gray hairs are a friendly reminder your time is short. Get crackin'.
  • If you don't get what you want, become an environmentalist and make an Academy Award winning documentary. It worked for Al Gore.

Seriously, love yourself. I'd hug you if I had the chance. 


  1. Consider yourself hugged back. And I needed to hear this. Thanks.

    1. Extra hugs to you, Linda. I mentioned you all in the acknowledgments of my new book. You are one of the reasons it's out in the world!
