This was my last post on The Pastry Box, because on December 31st, they posted their last article and closed down. (The archives are still all there, and eventually I’ll move copies to here.)
The Pastry Box gave me the confidence to write and publish in front of the entire UX industry. Without their call for writers, I never would have had the nerve to write for A List Apart, and I never would have started taking my fiction seriously. I will miss Alex and Katy and their advice and encouragement immensely.
(And yes, I’m looking for a new publishing platform, something where I can share space with other authors.)
This last post was filler; I’d provided it because Decembers were always rough for the editors and having a last-minute post for cancellations seemed to help them quite a bit.
It’s also a bit of a personal post, describing how I picked up walking as a “hobby” and/or “lifesaving device” as well as how you too could pick up the habit.
I hope you enjoy Walk It Off.
