THERE’S CANCER STORIES, THEN THERE’S CANCER STORIES

This is one of the more engaging cancer stories. In my research of cancer stories for my memoir, I’ve read a few. This is a great cancer story from the New Yorker. Thanks to facebook friend Pam Parker for the link. It’s about the individual who doesn’t fit the system just right. It’s about the […]

CANCER RECOVERY: ONE MAIN KEY

I’ve got a serious cancer recovery question in the vein of what came first, the chicken or the egg, after reading this. Maybe this isn’t the right place to ask, but come on blogosphere. The BBC reports, “HPV vaccine linked to ‘dramatic’ drop in cervical disease.” The next research I want to see is a […]

HOW PERSONALITY AFFECTS HPV16 GYM COMMUNICATION

I heard a story about a man from a good communication source: My kid told me an older man at my gym with an outgoing personality told him he had the same thing I had, meaning hpv16 neck cancer, throat cancer, tongue cancer, he wasn’t specific but it was cancer in the body part between […]

MUSCLE UP: LIFTING WEIGHTS AND WASHING UP FOR DISEASE PREVENTION

Lifting weights and building muscle in the right gym is disease prevention, as long as you wash your hands regularly and don’t touch your face.

WRITE A BOOK, THEY SAID. IT’LL BE FUN, 2

    What is the goal of writing a book? To get readers to turn the page. Such a modest goal. Should there be any other? I call it a building block, that’s what I call goals. What happens when you achieve your goals, when you have readers turning to the next page. Write another […]

WRITE A BOOK, THEY SAID, IT’LL BE FUN

    Long form writing is like a walk in the woods with no map. In the dark. With animal noises. And cliffs on both sides of the trail. If that isn’t a picture of adventure, what is? And all you need to do is sit down and write. And stay down. For a long […]

A PERSONAL PRIVATE LOVE STORY, PART TWO

    My biggest goal this year is getting my cancer memoir-70’s dating history-love story to a literary agent, to a publisher, to the book store in every airport with books for travelers who need something to avoid thinking about what could wrong on take off and landing and everything wrong where they’re headed.
