Vanity: An Update On Me

It was my turn to post this week on the writing blog I’m sharing, so I’m a little blogged out right now.  But, some news about me, just to stay in the habit.  (Also, so Justin can’t hold anything over me, ha ha.)  🙂

I finished the piece I mentioned a few months ago & turned it in to Virginia Neighbors magazine.  It’s an article about Salvador Dali’s brief stay in Caroline County during WWII.  It’ll be running in January; I believe the mag comes out January 1st.  So, pick up lots of copies & support the mag because the editor has demanded more pieces from me.  Now, I just have to come up with some ideas.

The book review for The Original of Laura is up & linked on the review page.  I mentioned it awhile back as well.

Also, someone could have warned me that the people taking the payments for my student loans are complete fuckers.  Not only did I send off two checks totaling over 14,000 dollars before the due date of my first payment, there was still interest to pay on the accounts.  When I asked to pay over the phone (just to get it over with, seriously, I hate being in debt), I was charged an additional 20 dollars, 10 per each account.  Doing the right thing will never get you anywhere.

End vanity post.

  1. Awesome news about the editor asking for more work from you.

    And yes, student-load folks are fuckers. And yes, they do charge extra to pay over the phone. Asshats.
