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! […]

"I Just Peed."

We were in the car one day.  The radio was on. The air conditioning was blowing at me. All three men of mine were talking or singing. The boys were playing some version of physical jackassery horseplay in the backseat.    In total exasperation, I reached forward and turned off the radio and the air […]

The Worst Parts and the Retelling

"Remember when you went camping and it rained the whole time and you were soaking wet and the car got a flat tire and the raccoons got into your food? (Insert a similar story here.) When you tell that story years later at a dinner party, you tell it with a smile on your face, […]

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 […]

Trust Does Not Come Quickly

Sometimes I picture myself standing on a tree stump just big enough for my two feet. In my mental image, the stump is surrounded by danger or things I’m afraid of – like I’m in the middle of a pit of snakes or a river of bubbling lava. I’m safe on the tree stump, but […]

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 […]

Charlotte and Our Coming of Age

I've not really been honest with myself about Charlotte's Web; it is one of my favorites in all the libraries of the world, and I wanted to share it with my children. But I just didn't want Charlotte to die ever again.  Not on my watch. So just before the Zuckermans and Arables took the […]

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 […]

The Night Donald Miller Changed My Life

Pour yourself some coffee, my friend. Or a mimosa. Whatever you need to settle in for one of the best moments of my life.  I'm probably about to plow through every word-count suggestion for blogs. But, when your life changes in one night, you should use as many words as you need. So, remember how […]

To Be Literary or To Be Relevant

I stood at Barnes & Noble, debating on whether or not to buy the Collectors Collection, "the cornerstone for any reader's library." The box contained titles such as Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Dracula, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and a few others that literary people speak highly of. Basically, it's the list of books I […]
