There are two things that motivate me to get up and out bed in the morning: writing and abdominal exercise. The possibility of this being the day when I'll shed belly fat is similar to my first publishing experience. Writing is in my blood. Print is my bible.

My options are taking Amtrak and Greyhound.
I emailed two journalism majors at EMU and UMICH (who may or may not be attending the conference) three weeks ago to see if I could get a ride. I'm still waiting for a response.
