July Updates

July 20, 2018


I apologize for not posting in May or June. Lots going on, but I’ll try to be better about keeping up with blog posts in the coming months!


Summer in Ocean City has been fun-filled and stuffed with good eats and drinks (and even better company!) I've enjoyed the quick walk to the beach and the small-town charm and coastal setting.


Freelance News


My article about the Ocean City food scene was published on Eat Your World. I was pleased with its final look and the reception it received.


I had three articles (listed below) published in the July-August issue of Coastal Style, which can be found on stands throughout the Delmarva area.

  1. Double Take –The popular Fenwick Island boutique, Body Double Swimwear, swims in a new direction with its new owner, Liz Welsh.

  2. Ocean Pines 50th Anniversary – A look back at the prominent community’s history and how it continues to evolve to serve its residents

  3. Brace Place – The Brace Place recently expanded by adding a new office location in Easton, MD.


Creative Writing News


I’m competing in two flash fiction contests this month, Fiction War and NYC Midnight. Both have specific prompts and extremely tight deadlines. They are challenging, but the thrill is addictive and the feedback is invaluable. I’ve competed in both before, and each time I was on the cusp of being selected. I’m hoping for better luck this time around.


I also submitted a story for the 2018 Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Contest. The theme was “Beach Fun”, and I chose to write about an older beach lifeguard chasing a loose dog on the beach. I find out August 1st if my story was selected. Fingers crossed!


In the Pipeline


Currently, I’m wrapping up a piece that details my experience volunteering at a pre-school in San Miguel, Mexico. It is shaping up to be my favorite piece ever, and I’m really looking forward to sharing it.


Personal Updates


We moved into our house in May (although it feels like we’ve been living here for years). We are pleased with the renovation and are now selecting furniture to fill some empty spaces.


Stanley seems to be adjusting well; he spends most of his mornings basking in the sun which seeps through our front windows. We find out August 3rd if his heartworm treatment was successful.
