One of the most resonant pieces of advice I got from the teaching staff in my M.F.A program is that if I’m going to holding out to only make it into paying publications is like waiting for a tree to fall so you can get Direct TV. You can either cut down that tree yourself, overpay for cable or just get Hulu Plus and go to the bar to watch the game. Boy, I wandered into this analogy unprepared.
The point is that in addition to my weekly column for the SpeakeasyDC blog, I also am writing a weekly column for SoMuchSports.com. This is called the “Quick Inside Slant: Impressions of the 2012 NFL Season as perceived by a Creative Writing graduate student, part-time amateur stand-up comedian and collegiate intramural flag football legend.” So far, I have one article up and the webmaster told me it’s a hit. And because I can’t afford to go to computer lab after computer lab inflating the page hits, it would be nice if you clicked it out once in a while. Thanks and I’ll see you on the other side.
