Ego Trip by Canoe - more or less

     There's a new publication coming out sometime in the next year called The BWCA Reader, or something to that effect.  They're having a contest in hope of drawing essays for print.  So that's what I've been doing for the last two weeks, cutting, gutting and rewriting blog entries in an attempt to become a published sage of the northwoods.  Have my doubts as to success.  I know what good writing looks like and mine only overlaps that territory once in a while by accident.  My only hope is weird occasionally trumps good. And that no restraining order arrives by mail.  In any case, I've learned a lot thanks to several people who've critiqued the essays.  Hurt the ego at first but that was only temporary.  Makes me want to go back and re-write most of my blog entries.  Or maybe crawl into a closet and hide for a week or so.
