Life as a Writer – May 6 to May 8, 2019
Just the other day, I was commenting on sportswriters from Toronto being unresponsive and unhelpful. Thankfully, not everybody is like that.
On Tuesday, I reached out to sportswriter and author Jeff Pearlman to see if he was interested in being interviewed for an upcoming book that I am writing, and Jeff was gracious enough to say he would definitely help out. Hopefully, we will be speaking in the coming weeks.
As for Wednesday, well, I had a call set up with Darryl Dunn, the CEO/GM of the Rose Bowl Operating Company, for 10 a.m. That was perfect, because I then had a work lunch at noon. So, the plan was to make the call from home and then head out for the work lunch. But alas, early in the week, the lunch got moved up to 11:30, so I figured I would make the 10 a.m. call on the way to the lunch venue – in case the call took much longer than expected. (I mean, you try to plan some extra time just in case.)
Fortunately, it worked out as I did the call en route. And Mr. Dunn’s responses during the interview will be used in that future book. Of course, I arrived at the lunch venue on time – actually, a few minutes early and I was there before the others.
Glad that that part of it worked out – and then it’s time to keep pushing!
