Romping over at The Rumpus

Coming off the heels of my lukewarm singing lesson experience, I was especially thrilled last night to receive the news that three of my 52/52 stories will appear in an upcoming issue of The Rumpus:

If you're not familiar with The Rumpus, it's one of the best online magazines out there--featuring terrific writing, including "Wild" author Cheryl Strayed's popular "Dear Sugar" column.

My three featured stories will be expanded versions of my adventures in belly dancing, visiting an adult bookstore, and auditioning for the TV show "Survivor."

The stories will appear in the next two months. I'll keep you posted.

Adding to my excitement, they've asked me to do an audio version of each story!

I figure recording my stories will be a great opportunity to help me practice my delivery for this spring's planned stand-up gig. 

And, perhaps, I should sing a few bars of "Moon River" at the end...

No big questions this week, just one thought to keep in mind: Sometimes, good things come your way when you just put yourself out there...
