Now that I’m writing for several different places, it’s a little harder to keep up with my stuff (if you’re so inclined). So here’s a quick update on what I’m doing these days:
— My newest gig is sportsblogging for Forbes.com. I’ve written two pieces already, one on Matt Flynn’s $14.5 million game and the other on the parallels between Jadeveon Clowney and Miley Cyrus (it’ll make sense when you read it, honest). So I’ll be in that space once or twice a week at least. Here’s my Forbes home page.
— I’ve got two pieces in the can and two more assigned for Our State magazine, where I’ve been writing for a couple of years. My next piece for them is in the November issue, which should be out any day now.
— I write about writing over at Nieman Storyboard — I’ve got a regular feature called Liner Notes where I look at well-written songs for clues to help us all be better writers. A new one of those should be running soon. The Storyboard folks also did a nice feature on my work recently, and I’ve got a few slots in their Big Book of Narrative roundup, which is really worth your time.
There’s plenty of other stuff going on … I’ve got a piece coming soon in the N.C. State alumni magazine, plus several other projects at one stage or another. I’m almost done with a book proposal that I’ll talk about more later if it bears fruit. Plus I’m sending out thoughts and links on Twitter just about every day, and that stuff cross-posts to my Facebook page. As Doug Miller, one of the great editors at the Observer, likes to say: Clackety-clack.
