The only downside to nightlife journalism

is the hours.

It’s 2:30 pm and I don’t think I’ve fully woken up yet. This is frustrating because I have things to do, articles to write, rooms to clean. Yet all I can manage is to mope about with burning eyes and the stiff gate of an unmotivated zombie. Otherwise, my gig is envy-inducing.

writing process: Do you believe in MAGIC?

One of the unexpected advantages of living in Las Vegas is easy access to the multitudes of conventions that happen here. And as a freelance writer, I have the flexibility to attend them on the drop of a hat. So it came to be that I will be attending MAGIC as a journalist on Tuesday (my birthday). For those of you who are out of the Vegas Convention Circuit, MAGIC is a giant fashion convention. Looks like all my experience at 944 is starting to pay off.
