It’s been a busy summer here in my little office (now declared a socks-free work zone for the summer). I’ve become a contributing editor at Avisian Publications, a trade publishing group that focuses on identity and authentication. I’ve been writing more fun pieces for HowStuffWorks.com. I’ve got a couple of other things in the pipeline. And I still don’t seem to have enough time to work on some ideas that are brewing in my head.
However, I wanted to share one specific story that published today. Ideally, I’d be writing a lot more humor, fiction, and essays, and I’m definitely trying to–it’s just that those markets are extremely competitive. Still, I’m pleased to announce that my humor piece “Business Plan for Slutty Dresses” was picked up by McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.
I wrote that piece in an attempt to capture how I felt walking down the Las Vegas Strip during a recent trip. I didn’t want to write a straight travelogue, so I came up with the idea of the ultimate business for that part of the world. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I hope you take a minute to read and enjoy it!
