A Little Forward, A Little Back

My first national publication is in print. Go to the grocery store/media stand and buy Bicycling magazine and then turn to page 20. There you will find my article, which has been edited down to two paragraphs. I have a lot of mixed emotions about it. First, I am filled with joy to be printed in a national magazine! Yay! A great start!

But then I am filled with sadness because a story I've been working on for months got boiled down to two paragraphs. I've worked in magazines. I know how space and layouts and things are important. But I'm still pretty bummed about it. Sad even. I need approximately 26 hours to feel sad, and then I'll put the situation in perspective and build on it.
