It's been a long time since my last post. I've been busy teaching, writing, and coaching. In the next couple months, I'll send my publisher a finished, revised draft of my third book--a young adult novella that is also a text for writers. I used to call it How to Get Rich Writing C Essays (And How to Write A Essays if You Want to Do That, Too). Right now, I'm calling it An Essay Is Like a Burrito. Seriously. Whatever the title, it's narrated by a senior in high school who has made it rich writing essays for his classmates and charging them for his services. I (for one) think it's hilarious. I hope it's both compelling and useful.
