I’ve been growing increasingly nostalgic for my days as a full-time writer.
The ink on my hands.
The paper cuts.
The reworking of a lead over and over again.
I rediscovered the following article I wrote in October 2003 for the now-defunct Medium Magazine. The words make me yearn for a life enslaved to the printed word.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
