Another huge round of "Parkland" rewrites, DONE!.
.
I sadly stressed Harper's production people by the level of rewrites, but had to be done. That's a mix of the copy-editor's marks and mostly mine.
.
Got to make this book tight.
.
About to dive into writing the epilogue. And working on the endnotes. And some TKs. And a few more scenes to rewrite. And more tweaks. And still got 2 researchers fact-checking with me. Whew. Still so much to do. Relentless, but it will end Dec 10.
.
That gives the printer and distribution 2 months to get it on store shelves. On sale Feb 12. Pre-order links at davecullen.com (or any site that sells books.)

My incredible niece received teacher of the year at the Educational Excellence Awards Gala last night. This award was well deserved as she truly has gift and a passion for teaching these babies. She always goes above and beyond. Unfortunately she was unable to receive her award in person because last week suffered a brain injury that has left her in ICU fighting for her life. My Neice Amber proudly received the award on her behalf. This past week has been an absolute nightmare for us , I’ve broken down more times than I can count. But today I’m crying happy tears because I could not be more proud of her. Please send some prayers & positive vibes out for Laila and our entire family. Laila loves Prince (because she was raised right) so play some of his music for her today. 💜💜💜 #teamlaila #liala #familyfirst #bohonnanstrong #douglasstrong #mullenstrong

My heart longs for pastoral beauty, for simplicity and a respect for the natural order of life. We feel so lucky to have been able to meet so many people around the world who have been so generous to have been our teachers, opening our eyes to the beautiful, amazing ways lives can be lived, with a reverence for life, death, and the planet we live on. This shot was taken at the reindeer camp of the Dukha tribe in northern Mongolia, one of the many places around the world where these values were iterated to us, this respect for life, death, and the earth that holds us all.
What I just can’t process is this senseless tragedy, this complete and utter disruption of the natural order, this lack of respect for life or death. My heart aches for my home country, the place I feel most scared to walk around in knowing that I could go to a music festival, a movie theater, or to work, and hear bullets flying. Last February, bullets rained down on my very own high school, making it the site of the deadliest high school shooting in American history. Last night, yet another shooting was added to the list, at the Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks, California where my friends and I have made utter fools of ourselves trying to line dance—I remember fumbling my feet and grabbing onto my best friend’s arms with my hands sticky from cheap PBRs, cackling in laughter—and then, over my memory I overlay the *pop* *pop* sound described in the articles, the stampede of kids running for survival. I imagine the complete and utter terror the attendees that night must’ve felt. I feel distraught for the victims and the survivors. I feel despondent.
But through the tears, I feel love. SO much love for the people I hold dearest. The fear of losing them is so powerful I can’t even bear it. If there’s any lesson that I can take away from something so senselessly tragic, it’s this: Hold your loved ones tight, and never miss an opportunity to tell them how you feel. Appreciate this wonderful life, this magnificent planet, every second and every inch 💕

Sometimes all we need to do is look at problems from a different perspective.

Most memorable moment: toss up between the heartbreaking #douglasstrong offrenda...and Max trying to take Hershey kisses off of it because “it’s not like they’re going to eat them” 🤦🏻‍♀️#diadelosmuertos #hatch1121 #ofrendasmexicanas #calaveras #pandemuerto #favoriteholiday #appropriatinglikeapro

“This is Anthony Borges.
He saved the lives of 20 of his Parkland classmates. He used his body to keep the shooter from coming in to kill them.

Anthony Borges who was shot five times Feb. 14 during the school massacre. The photo features him shirtless with his surgical scars exposed while wearing a colostomy bag.” -Chris Morales-

If you know Anthony Borges, tell him that he, and his parents have FREE REAL ESTATE SERVICES WITH ME FOR AS LONG AS I AM ALIVE. And tell him that I said THANKS FOR BEING SO BRAVE. 786.355.1449

‘Columbine’ didn’t win a Pulitzer, or an NBA, but it did with the Goodreads Choice Award for best nonfiction book of 2009—the very 1st year they held it. 🤗 That was cool.
.
They didn’t even have an awards ceremony that year (now they’re up to 80 million members!), but they honored 10 years of winners Monday night, and announced this year’s nominees. Lots of fun.
.
And voting is now open for this year.

The Russians are coming, again. Never a good sign when Russian TV comes to your apartment. (Video at my story.).
.
Second time this year, because sadly, our worst cultural export ever: school shootings. They had a slew of stabbings early this year, which created an uproar there, but it’s difficult to get guns.
.
Unfortunately, a kid in Crimea got a gun and shot up his school and killed 20 people. Horrible. They are devastated, and baffled. (And yes, the kid wore clothing and other cues to resemble the Columbine killers.).
.
This has to stop. Hopefully, the Parkland/MFOL kids are the way out of this nightmare.

This may look like a repeat, but notice 3 big things:.
.
1. They liked my idea to add an interior subtitle (only exists on the inside, not on the cover).
.
2. No edits in the margin! Hence. . . .
3. File name at the bottom: To Production! This baby is birthed! 🤗🍾🎉.
.
Sort of. There is so much still to fact-check and several bits to clean up while the copy editor has it, plus I have to write the endnotes and acknowledgements, and a shitload of other tasks. But is moving on. On to the next stage. Huge hurdle.
.
It has been insane. Since July 4, I’ve taken 2 half-days off, possibly a third, and a few “weekends” where I knocked off early at 7:30 and skipped the evening shift. I was getting 4-6 gym days a month until the mid August. I’ve only been about twice since then. 8am-9:30pm most days, 7 days a week. I need a 😴 !.
.
And today, I get to shower! Yea!! And shave. My face itches.
