  1. I don't know a lot of born writers but you're one of them. Let me know when your article is in EW. I keep thinking you could write for the Chronicle or something along those lines... Your portfolio must be packed with great stuff!

    1. Thanks Matt! I think the EW story (which is .com - not the magazine) will run in three segment following each day of the Outside Lands festival, which means 8/11, 8/12, and 8/13. I'm psyched.

  2. Julie- you are an amazing writer. believe me - if you even knew what I did now you would be like "how you have fallen" I work as a project manager for a privatized daycare company dealing with internal politics that make the west wing look easy. and all for less than half of what I made in nyc. Oh and I am perceived as difficult and have "drama" following me. Believe me you need to parlay your talents with writing to books and magazines. we are all too old for office politics and bullshit - and your too good for it.
    And for the people who dont write you back? they suck and they know it.

    1. Marti. You rule.

      I can't even begin to imagine you as a project manager for a privatized daycare company. That's ridiculous. Thank god you're perceived as difficult and dramatic -- it'd be unbearable otherwise.

  6. When one door closes it usually rebounds off your butt and goes wide open again. If you find yourself at loose ends you can stay at my place and we'll go harass shadoobie in lawrence.

    Let me know if you need a beta reader. Love you, gretchen

  7. Oh my. I know the feeling. The only disappointing thing about this column is that it ended too soon! It always feels like you're actually talking to me.
