Some Things I Wrote + June Update

Everyday Genius published a new series of very short stories I wrote called "Girl with Cool, Damp Mouth." Andrew Bulger did the illustrations for it.

The Greenpoint Gazette published an article I wrote last week on Theatre in a Van, called "Theatre in a Van Takes It to the Street." Apologies for the lack of spaces between some of the periods (this was not my fault).

I am reading at two events in July, both of them put on by my friend Jason Diamond at Vol. 1 Brooklyn.

Just got back from SF, where I was for a week.

Found a new space starting in August, about a mile from where I currently live. This marks the second time my home address will contain the word "Broadway" in it. The first time was in Manhattan, around 2006-07. This time it will be in Brooklyn.

Started teaching high school students again up at Columbia.

Been riding a lot this week.

Yesterday I rode ~23.6 miles. Tuesday I rode ~37 miles, an all-time high. Monday ~22.4.

12-week/84 day total

~869 miles
3 boroughs (brooklyn, manhattan, queens)
73 bridges (williamsburg 50x, manhattan 4x, queensborough 5x, pulaski 5x, brooklyn 1x)
40 subways


Still a lot of riding to go before I reach my goal of 2000 miles for this summer. For comparison's sake by this time in 2009, I had ridden ~905.6 miles, although I only ended up riding ~1014 miles.
