I'm going to try this because, well--everyone else does it.
Shameless self-promotion alert!
I actually had my first writing published.
In March. In the National Catholic Register(many, many thanks!)--it was a version of the my dad/Mel's dad piece. Which, according to Mom, my dad has shown to everyone who is even semi-literate in English.
Exactly two (dos/zwei/dva) people noticed it--thanks Jim and Mark.
So, in honor of my second published piece, I decided to try another tack:
Why, yes, I am that "Dale Price" referenced on the cover of the June 2004 New Oxford Review, thank you very much! [Cue sound of rotator cuff tearing as obscure blowhard pats self on back.]
If it seems familiar, it is--it's an edited (sigh) version of the old AmChurch vs. Catholic men piece from a year or so back.
Editing: The Necessary Evil™. If only they could have left the Miracle on Ice reference in there...
Much more seriously, be sure to subscribe to that fine publication as well--if for no other reason than you'll get to see my third published article before the end of summer. Or so.
