Sunday Archive XVI: Mood Swings

From December, 2006.  This moody little piece found me tempted to cut and run:  Dissolve the company, leave DC, move to the country… I’ve been in cut and run mode for quite some time and never seem to get to the first step. I didn’t post this article because it sucks.  But also because, a […]

Sunday Archive XV: More notes and drafts

A classic example of how the articles come together.  Email the first paragraph to myself, then pick up whenever I get to where I’m going.  This, from April of 06, eventually became Small Nights.

Sunday Archive XIV: Another James Outtake

 Here’s another draft starring the recurring James character.  Lots of these were more just random episodes that I typed out for use in proper articles. A short one, and I have no idea if it found a way into any of the full articles.  But tons of these “dialogues” exist in my notes.  Some are […]

The last Oscar Bin Laden article ended with a cliffhanger.  I wrote a very rough draft for the next story in March of 2006, which is below.  It’s actually the third part of a “trilogy of articles” launched with Today – Silver Spring!.  The second part was never written.

Sunday Archive XI: A typical Rant

Sunday Archive VIII: Hyphenated Americans

From August of 2005, this is part of an article continued from notes written on the Metro.  I don’t remember it at all, so I guess it was never published.  God knows where those notes are… I have a closet full of pads and little reporter’s notebooks.

Sunday Archive VI: Last Day (Wage Slave Rant Draft II)

Gmail cleanout part six! This article was written on the same day in February, 05, as last week’s post.  What I often do is rant in a notebook during my commute, then turn the rant into an article for the front page.  Just skimming this, since I can’t be bothered to read it all, it’s […]
