Writing Update

The big news on the writing front is that I have added yet another rejection slip to my collection. Perhaps it's time to start on the next great American novel.

On a more positive note, I've received an assignment to write two articles for a local monthly publication, Catalyst, on bicycle commuting. The first will appear in the September issue, and the second in the October issue. I might also become their "resident bicycle transportation expert" whatever that means(!)

Commuting by bike is common in Europe and Asia, but here in the U.S., the car is king. With gas at $4/gallon, however, alternatives are in order and biking is not only environmentally friendly, it's healthful as well. Once my articles are published, I'll add a link here or put them both in my blog.

Kirksville is a great place for the bike commute...or maybe it is the fact that I never have to travel more than a mile to get anywhere
