Minnesota Sporting Journal

I’m anxiously awaiting the delivery of the newest “Minnesota Sporting Journal” issue. Before you see my excited gob holding up the hard-copy (since, no doubt, I will take photos), check out the winter issue here. It just became available to read online.

My article’s on page 13.



Day 90: Writing Wrap Up and Simultaneous Hair Dye

I mentioned yesterday that I still had a lot of writing to do today (for the next issue of “The Minnesota Sporting Journal”).

So, yep, I did that.

Maybe I keep waiting until the last minute because that’s when I come up with my best stuff. <<Shrug>> I guess that deadline breathing down my neck really helps.

I also dyed my hair. I was born a little blondie. I started coloring it in college, and many shades later I landed–and stayed–on black. For now at least.

This is what happens when you try to go back.

Oh, and wait and see for the article. I’m thinking you should subscribe to the magazine (it’s only $18/yr!).

You can check out some of my other articles here (page 38), and here (page 44).

I promise I write better for that, than I do for this blog. 🙂

Day 89: Procrastinated

So, the deadline for my “Minnesota Sporting Journal” article is tomorrow.

I woke up late, putzed around, lost my cat, found my cat, ate a crap ton of oreos, and wrote approximately 500 sloppy first-draft words–yikes.

I don’t get it.

I always do this.

Whelp, guess who’s waking up early tomorrow?


On a positive note, I made a donation to my friend Brooke’s “Bike MS” campaign. All size donations help (there’s a button to put in your own amount on her page).
