A letter to the editor, three book reviews, and a column in the monthly church newsletter (although there are not many editorial barriers for the the last one) up until today they composed all the times any piece of writing I offered was published.
Yesterday my first ever Carnival season ended with Ash Wednesday. It was an amazing run of 12 or so days. I felt things, did things, and experienced life like never before. On Monday morning something within me clicked and I had to write it down. I submitted it to the local paper, The Times-Picayune, for publication and they actually published it. Tomorrow morning when you, that is if you read the T-P in the morning, you will see this article.
Amazing what this city will do to you.
