Writing is in my blood. Since my dad worked for The Wall Street Journal as Assistant Managing Editor for most of his career, I’ve been exposed to a lot of the published world. While I was growing up, my dad subscribed to Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, TIME, National Geographic, and probably a few other publications that slip my mind. He also read the New York Times, and glanced at the New York Post (rag) traveling from Wall Street to 20th and First. The cartoons provided a distraction for the subway ride home. My mom completed the NYT Sunday crossword puzzle every weekend. How anyone can finish that correctly, week after week, I’ll never be able to fathom.
While I know that many publications have gone by way of the dinosaur, I also know that there will always be people that want to read interesting, well written articles. Perhaps it will all soon be “online only.” That’s okay too, as long as channels of communication are still in place, writers will continue to write, and readers will continue to read. My first article will be entitled, Where do you want to die?
