More articles … News … Etc.

I am approaching almost an entire year without a consistent paycheck. We’ve been able to make due, not without the sometime-stressors that come alongside such an endeavor. The brush is thick at places, but the path is continually clearing as I try to figure out this odd, hard-to-explain world of freelance writing. I’m happy to get work when I do, happy to get exposure, and happier when I get the small checks proportionate to the words within each story.

Here’s what I’ve learned: There are some talented-ass writers out there. One of the most rewarding parts of what I do only a daily basis is having an ability to discover writers – from sites like The Atlantic, The Awl, Grantland, Nowhere (plus countless blogs) – that do exactly what I’m aiming to do. They’re good models for me and, when I’ve been able to connect with some of these people – they’ve been extraordinarily helpful.

I’ve gotten a lot of work recently for a local magazine. The articles I can’t link yet because the issue won’t be out until early May. It’s a start. I’ll link them as soon as they’re up.

Otherwise, The Classical has been kind enough to give me some space on their site to write when I have something to say. Here are links to my latest there:

“The Shock of the New”

“The Wichita State Reckoning”

Til’ next time.
