“Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.”
West Side Market: I love to go in without any dinner plans and piece together what I need for a meal while taking in all the sights, sounds, and smells.
Beachland Ballroom & Tavern: I particularly love when a good band plays in the Tavern. It's a small space, which makes for a very intimate experience.
Pier W: The best cliff-entrenched boat around. It has great food and a gorgeous setting. Plus, the happy hour is much more reasonable than it has any right to be.
The cheese board at L'Albatros: It's more than great cheese. A good cheese board expert (cheesemollier?) turns an assortment of dairy products into an amazing experience.
My bed: It's pretty comfy.
I've had the good fortune of interviewing a lot of fascinating musicians, comedians, scientists, and celebrities. Highlights include the time I got butt dialed by Bill Nye the Science Guy and an interesting conversation with Bubba Sparxxx about how a lot of people don't know how many "x's" to put in his name.
AP Stylebook: There's a reason the call it the journalist's bible. Great to use as a base while adjusting to personal style guides.
Moz Whiteboard Friday: A great video series that tackles different SEO topics each week. Plus, you get to see an evolution of Rand Fishkin's hairstyles.
Words (everywhere): Pay attention to how words are used in new books, articles, movies, speeches, and whatever else you can find. Words are a writer's tools, and it's important to pay attention to how people use them.
