  • 9/23/11 Writing for MuscleMag.com

    I worked really late last night - almost 7am this morning, actually. So, I slept a little longer than usual and didn't get up until about 1pm. In typical Skip fashion I come downstairs and grab my coffee and my phone and head back up the stairs to my bathroom hoping to get there before I shit my pants from the smell of the coffee. If you are old you understand what I am saying.

    I get to my special room and I set down my coffee and phone on the table because .... well ... I have a table in my bathroom to hold my coffee, phone, Kindle, book or whatever else I may need to set on a table. Don't hate, I'm just planful like that.

    The first thing I do after turning on my phone is check my email and I saw that Jeb Roberts from MuscleMag had emailed me twice. Because I have been anxiously waiting to hear if he thought my articles sucked or not, I wake myself up very quickly by reaching down into the toilet to get my hands wet and splashing water on my face. Ok, I didn't really do that and I have no idea where that came from. Anyway .....

    The point is that he says that he is interested in my writing for MuscleMag.com and liked both articles that he had seen - one being contest prep related and the other was my typical rant-style writing which, as most of you know, I prefer to do over the other boring stuff. Well, boring to me, anyway. I get bored if I am not offending or berating someone. It sounds like the rants may be monthly with a contest prep article interspersed here and there.

    Honestly? I am so excited I could shit myself. I am still laughing at the thought of getting paid for writing. Of course, I am not laughing so hard that I can't cash the checks but you get my point. There is something very flattering to me about someone thinking enough of my writing to think I deserve to get paid for it.

    Of course, the big test is if the MuscleMag.com audience likes my stuff or not. If they don't I will obviously belittle and berate them, as well, and get paid for THAT article, too. It's a win win for me.

                Had I known this was going to happen I wouldn't have been able to make that trip. Clearly, I am in a different league now.

                      The more I think about it, I shit in your sink so the picture of the toilet would be worthless.

                              Scott? Scott who??

                              This is about SKIP!! He can go get his OWN thread.

                              In all seriousness, it was Scott who went to bat for me and I appreciate his efforts very much. I am not sure what favors Scott may have promised but let's just say that his girl might want him to brush his teeth before he kisses her.
