I’m not sure about the title for this post. Grinding always sounds like something unpleasant to me and the truth is I love to write. I enjoy shaping paragraphs; using grammar as a forge to weld subject and predicate into something that sings to your eye.
See? I told you I love writing.
Anyway, the point I was getting at is that I’m working feverishly to reach my goal of getting five more interviews done by year’s end. I’ve already gotten the go ahead from my contact at Power Magazine, Andee Bell, who is a pleasure to work with. This year has been phenomenal already, I’ve interviewed two legitimate World Powerlifting Champions and one legend in the sport. I’ve talked to up and coming business owners and rising superstars.
While I still haven’t managed to get that interview with Lee Haney (if you know him and you read this please tell him to answer my phone calls and emails. I’m not going away without a definite yes or no.)
I can’t wait for next year.
