Dave-o's Latest Column for the Ann Arbor Chronicle, on Writing Careers, Plus Getting Quoted a Bunch in Forbes
(Reposted from my more daveocentric blog, on account these sorts of things tend to interest Mojonauts, too.)
A couple of quick items now that I'm back in town and in the computing seat:
1) I continue to write a monthly column for the Ann Arbor Chronicle. The August column (which obviously snuck in kinda late; I was out of town) is about How To Launch Your Writing Career in Four easy steps:
1. Get a Baby
2. Write Some Stuff
3. Go to Library Story Time
4. Check Your Email
I know, I know, you have a few questions. So, I will clarify in detail below, with footnotes.
. . .
“Hey!” you’re about to type, “This isn’t a career plan, it’s just a string of random events involving a nameless baby! None of it applies to me; I don’t even have a baby! What a rip-off!”
What’s tripping us up is this word “career.” . . .

2) A few months back a nice blogger from Forbes visited my coworking community to talk about remote workers and coworking and stuff. So, if you want to read a little more about the "terrible investment decisions" portion of my "career," check that out.
