Welcome!

POTENTIAL GRADUATE STUDENTS: Although I hope to admit one PhD student to start in the 2021-2022 academic year, the funding outlook is grim and I doubt that I will be able to admit anyone. Read more about grad school here.

Welcome to my humble webpage. I don't really do social media---the days are short when you have kids and write books---but I occasionally hang out at Goodreads if you're curious to see what I'm reading or have any good non-fiction books to recommend.

Speaking of writing books, the second edition of How to Write A Lot was released in September, 2018. I added a chapter, rewrote several older ones from scratch, uncorked a few more rants about specious barriers to writing a lot, and added even more inane jokes about pets.

My current writing schedule is every weekday from 7:00 am to 9:30 am, give or take a bit, while working remotely from home.

Our Agraphia group migrated online in mid-March. UNCG faculty and post-docs are invited to drop in, set some goals, and face the piercing stares of the hardened writing desperadoes who attend Agraphia.
