About two years ago, inspired by the writing style of Matt Samet, I decided to try my own “tell all” writing experiment. I was certainly wondering if these are words I should be sharing. The process was a moving experience and the end result was powerful. I was actually a little shy to share it with my wife Lisa, given how personal it was. She loved it and said it was the best thing I had ever written. I submitted the story to Alpinist, and now, about a year and a half later, it’s immortalized in print. The editing process with the editors at Alpinist was more of an event than I would have ever imagined; lots and lots of revisions.
Anyway, check it out, it’s called Quid No Pro and is on shelves now!
Here is the webpage for the issue, but I don’t see my essay listed, so you may have to go and buy it. http://www.alpinist.com/doc/ALP51
