Welcome to my blog. I’ll do my best to update it regularly (or semi-regularly, at the least…) with news, writing updates, and other assorted thoughts. Read, enjoy, and please share your thoughts and comments. If you’re looking for psychology pieces at the New Yorker, you can find them here. If you’re looking for my old blog about literature and psychology, Literally Psyched, you can find it here.

Oh, procrastination…

February 27, 2012

This is what today feels like. Now, I just need a way to swim out of there and get back to writing. Some days are just like that.

It reminds me of something I wrote a while back, on the key to making achievement out of procrastination: structured procrastination. Except sometimes, it doesn’t quite work out as planned.

My new website launches!

February 14, 2012

I’m thrilled to welcome you to my new website. It has been many months in the making (thank you, Amy and Ethan! and thank you, Cara, for the phenomenal illustrations) and I couldn’t be happier with how it has turned out. I will be writing a proper introductory post later, but for now, I just want to say welcome, thank you for visiting, please look around, and please share any comments you might have.

Until soon.
