It’s like the dark ages up in here.

In New Jersey hanging out at a weird hotel pool all by my lonesome.

I’m here for the New Brunswick writing conference, which is so off the beaten path, it doesn’t even have a hashtag! It’s like the dark ages up in here.

But here’s the thing y’all… NEIL FREAKING GAIMAN is speaking tonight. I’m so excited and *starstruck* (uh huh) but mostly I can’t figure out why such a podunk-seeming con has such great keynote speakers. I’m intrigued.

Also. I think there’s a junior dance competition happening at this hotel. #sohereforit
Also. There are trees in front of me, traffic in the back. This is the mullet of pools.

(Personality included.)

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.

(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
