One year ago, I’d never been on a commercial plane. Since then, I’ve been on twenty-six airplanes. Twenty-four of them got off the ground with me on board. I’ve slept in three foreign countries and eight cities in five states.I stayed on shitty hotels and awesome hotels. I’ve driven across six states.
And I still haven’t found what I’m lookin’ for!
I wrote a little something new last week. I call it “Starbucks Kills Dreams.” I’ve also been working on some fiction lately, including (finally) revising “Giving Up.” I also learned that The Nation accepts freelance submissions (or queries, anyway), and they pay $150 for “comments” of 750 words or so. That comes out to about 20cents a word, but only if I use all the right words in the right order 🙂 I’m thinking about writing something for them called “The New Cannibalism,” or something like that. We’ll see.
