I made a decision that as a side project, I will write a novel. There is a working title with the essential plot of the story being a fictional twist on my early years as a sports writer/editor: Everything from graduating and job searching to moving 2,000 miles for the first full-time job to working with various other factors in a first year out on the field.

With most of my energy going into the Shelton-Mason County Journal's sports section, I feel it might be nice to take some of the creative juices into a second outlet. 

Hoping that I can finish in the next few months, read through the draft, edit and look into publication sometimes around Spring 2011 or Summer 2011.
