I am currently running two major topics on this blog outside of my creative writing and I manage two other blogs as well.
On Olive These Words:
1: Your Story from 10 Words
This is a weekly blog that I will post every Sunday. I ask people to submit 10 words, a theme, and a song and I create a story from them. These stories are free of charge and I am willing to write them for anyone and everyone. The only requirement is that you email me first and make sure that I am not backlogged.
2: Opinion Pieces
There are two branches of this: Battle Royale and Of Life & Lunacy. The battle royale pieces are my take on comparing things. They are meant to be a bit silly and fun. I pit characters, movies, or really anything in a king of the hill battle to see who is the best. Feel free to disagree and let me have it!
The other opinion pieces (Of Life & Lunacy) are my 5 to 7 point takes on things happening in the world.
3: Fitness – Lean Mean Daddy
This is where I chronicle my workouts. I began a gym free fitness program 3 years ago and have lost nearly 50 pounds and am at a weight I have not been at since junior high school (I am 36, by the way). I can help you do the same!

4: Teaching Abroad – Honky Sensei
I am currently working and living in Japan. I have been in English teacher here for nearly 6 years now and the stories that one comes away with working with children who have a tenuous grasp on the language at best is good entertainment for all. These stories are lighthearted and silly. You have been warned. To read these posts please visit this site: https://honkysensei.wordpress.com/
As with anything I post if you have comments or questions please feel free to email me at any time.
