Every time I write, my goal is to write easy-to-read sentences.

In late March, Gwen Stefani achieved a music milestone that only a dozen or so artists before her had accomplished: she hit No. 1 on the Billboard album chart as a solo artist after having previously done so with a band. The first time it was with No Doubt in the late 1990s; this time it was on her own with This Is What the Truth Feels Like. The other musicians who’d charted with a group and on their own required just single names to be recognized: Clapton, Beyonce, Lennon, McCartney, Joplin.Read More

During the bad times, it's the flickering flame of a candle, barely shining through the darkness. And during the really bad times, the fire is roaring once again ... but only because everything is burning to the ground.Read More

One of the things that consistently amazes me about writing is that it can be a little like magic. The right combination of words on a page (or screen) can accomplish incredible things; it can change lives, create a legacy that lasts generations, even topple nations.
