Really. I'm writing two weekly columns for Patch Altadena, an online local news source that's setting up in towns across the country. In some cases, it's pretty much the only news source, in others, my town for example, it's in the company of an already established and very popular site, Altadenablog.com.
In our case, I think we'll complement each other.
So please swing by and check out my initial offerings and leave a word or two. I'm partial to the bloodhound piece, first of all because it's better than the other one, and secondly, I wrote the final line for that one. And you know how I feel about getting in the last word. Also, it has my videos (they're the ones with the orange glow). I call these my Marie Antoinettes, for obvious reasons. But my subjects are very, very charming, even when they're out of frame.
I'm grateful for this opportunity; the site will just get better with time. So will I. In fact, my next week's column is not bad at all.
I'll try to work and play well with others. After all, paid writing jobs don't grow on ...
This might be my lucky year.
