>I won’t deny that part of the reason to operate this blog is to promote my own work. (The larger part of the reason, I suppose, is to promote literature in general, including emerging writers who otherwise get little exposure.) So I shouldn’t feel uncomfortable about the article (“Changing Course“) in the Northwestern University Alumni Magazine in which the subject of career changes is discussed by author Elizabeth Canning Blackwell, beginning with me. I shouldn’t, but I do. Blackwell does a nice job with the piece, though, and I’m pleased with the way it turned out.
