And so begins my odyssey. Today is the 15th of the month and as I promised, I submitted my first essay to Modern Love. From my list of possible topics, I picked Green Sex. I like the way the essay turned out. We’ll see if anyone over at the NYT agrees.



  1. What's Green Sex? Doing it in the woods?

  2. I suppose that would qualify. Although it doesn't sound very comfortable to me.
    But I won't keep you in suspense. You've got mail. Tell me what you think.

  3. And so it begins....
    Funny, I'm cleaning out my cluttered office this week and just came across my ML rejection letter from 07. You're making me think about taking the plunge again.
    Good luck.
