although you can’t tell from my writing, for 2 years i used to be the “editor-in-chief” for a small newspaper in asheville, nc.
i wrote a lot of the articles…exclusives, etc…but a lot was me proof-reading (with an iron fist) announcements that groups wanted to get out to the public that they’d mail in for publication. (no email/internet back then.)
i wasn’t paid much, so i also bartended for extra income. on slow, winter nights, i’d write and edit while behind the bar.
somewhere on an external hard-drive, is a pic of me bartending. i’ll post it here when i find it…
