Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas Magic

In January 2008, my two syndicated columns, Living Online and Living Greenly, debuted. They appear regularly in parenting publications across the country: Atlanta Parent, Austin Family, Baton Rouge Parents, Coulee Parenting Connection, Houston Family, Irving Parent, Parents & Kids, Kansas City Baby, Kansas City ParentSacramento Parent, Wilmington Parent, and Your Child Today to name just a few.

I’m not just writing about the green life, my family and I are truly living it. We were challenged to go a whole month on one tank of gasoline and we did it! Here are the television news stories.

During the nearly two years I lived in Italy, I was a frequent contributor to Wanted in Rome, an English-language magazine. Even though I’ve repatriated, I can’t get Italy out of my system so I blog about living in Rome. Now I’ve written a book, Times New Roman: How we quit our jobs, gave away our stuff, moved to Italy, and squandered our son’s inheritance. It will be available Spring 2014.

    Firѕt off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a
    quick question that I’d like to ɑsk if you do not mind.
    I was curious tߋ know how you center ƴourѕelf and cleaг
    your mind before writing. I’ve had ɑ difficult time clearing my thougɦts in getting mʏ thoughts out there.
    I truly do tакe pleɑsurе in writing howeνer it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figurе out how
    to begin. Any recоmmеndations or tips? Cheers!

  2. Thank you! I’m glad you found my website and enjoyed it.
    To answer your question, I try to write only about topics that I have a strong interest in or that I already have a good base knowledge. That way I’m excited about the subject matter and any research I need to do is fun. Starting is daunting sometimes, so even if it takes you 10 to 15 minutes to warm up, that’s not so bad. Just know that you’ll get in the groove soon and keep at it.
