Notes on a Life

"I was reading a book a few weeks ago - I like to read first thing in the morning these days, with my coffee. So I was reading the book and I went to take a sip of coffee and I spilled on the book.  I got all upset: 'Now look!  I ruined the book! […]

That's Some Serious Staying Power

When death comes at the end of a long life, we don’t wonder if it was time. We don’t wonder if God is good. But when death comes unexpectedly to a child or a teenager or a young parent, it is hard to believe that death can be a good thing. It is hard to […]

Springtime Snow and Sad Days

Yep. It snowed. Quite a bit, actually. Summer break starts on Friday, the community pools open on Monday, and we are in several inches of snow in Colorado.  It's all Facebook can talk about.  We are a whole city irritated. The tree limbs all look so defeated today.  All bent over, hanging low, burdened. No, […]

True Stories Told Well: Tricia Lott Williford

Recently, FaithHappenings featured my writing in their Author Spotlight. Here's my interview with a splash of personality. What do you love to write and what inspired you to start? I love true stories told well, so my favorite genre is creative nonfiction. I tend to lean into real-life moments and do two things with them: dissect big emotions, giant […]

My Debut Into Talk Radio

”Can you be there on Monday at 11:00?” he asked. His name is Moose, perhaps in part because all radio producers have a schtick, though perhaps his nickname came about long before he started on radio.  He seems like a Moose. He produces Angie Austin’s radio show, The Good News with Angie Austin, and they […]

100 Huntley Street: My Entrance Into Live TV

I’d venture to say that not every television anchor is willing to share the makeup room with the random and ever-changing “guest on today’s show.”  It’s kind of an intimate space, that room of transformation.  But Moira Brown is not just every television anchor, and there we sat, side by side in the makeup chairs […]

When Opportunity Knocks, It's Too Late To Prepare

”You realize you're never going to be invited to speak at this writer’s conference, right?” We are peers, each of us learning the trade, and I felt more than a little bit dashed.  Somehow even a complete stranger can speak into the likelihood of your dreams if you’re not careful. The thing is, I really, really, […]

Jon Acuff and That Thing Writers Don't Talk About

Remember how I told you that Jon Acuff is my friend, if only because I made a fool of myself in my one moment with him? There's one other reason.  When I read someone's work and it changes my life, then we are are forever on a first-name basis in my imagination.  If you speak […]

At The End of The Day

"Mommy, I wish you weren't an author." (Ouch.) I had just finished an evening of teaching.  It's been a long, rough day, as is the nature of a day when I'm teaching: there's no way the Enemy is going to let me sail through the day without a snag.  It has something to do with […]

My Moment with Anne Lamott

Sometimes an opportunity pops up between the cracks of the sidewalk, and  you just know that you know that you know it will be a moment of all moments. Anne Lamott came to my town, to my bookstore (which I fervently all my own since I guess I believe a girl should put her name on the […]

A Baseball Field of Nickels

Here's a little experiment. Picture a baseball diamond. The whole field: three bases and home plate, infield and outfield, the whole deal. Now picture the entire field covered with nickels. End to end, side to side. Thousands of dollars, one nickel at a time. Now imagine that it's your job to go through the field […]

Happenings over Teriyaki and White Rice

"Do you have a punch card with us?" "I should get one, shouldn't I?" "You definitely should." And the next thing I knew, he was making confetti from holes in a business card as if he were the train engineer on The Polar Express. "Here's one for Monday, and one for Tuesday, and here's one […]

A Delicious Paragraph about My Kissable Life

I am putting the final loving touches on the next book, Let's Pretend We're Normal. (If perhaps you are thinking, "Trish, didn't you already do that?" then to you I say, "Yes, and this is the ongoing joy of the writing life until the publisher waves the checkered flag.  It's never finished, merely abandoned.") I […]

My Heart In the Marketplace

"What comes up, way down at the bottom, is that my heart is still broken from bringing out Writing Down the Bones."  I gasp. I clutch at my heart. What is this you say, Natalie Goldberg? Broken hearted from producing Writing Down the Bones? This is the book I have bought so many times over, […]

Somehow I Didn't Punch Him In the Neck

So, remember when I was all lit about about the book When We Were on Fire? And I invited all of you to read it and join me for a giant book club discussion over lattes and scones at the world's biggest Starbucks which might just be in my imagination and an ethereal dream? I'm […]

Pillow Talk

I love a cold house. Like, ridiculously so. My bedroom at night is downright cold. (You can blame a certain Robb Williford for this. I had no choice but to adapt my body temperature to his arctic preferences.) But the furnace stopped working yesterday, and the temp in the house was dropping dangerously close to […]
