I have been professionally published, for the first time ever. (Letters to the editor don’t count.) It’s an essay that boils down the DMPS thing to 714 words (give or take). Interesting tidbit: I offered it to the Des Moines Register first, but it was deemed it un-newsworthy. So many more important things going on, you know, like the end of the state legislative session. There is more to this story, but I’ll refrain. Because I’m fair and balanced. And now, published.
Please excuse me while I go do my happy dance. And then get to work outlining some of my music-saving strategies in case someone emails and wants me to serve on a committee or something.
