Pre-drinking leads to pre-writing


I went to see Lisa Birnbach speak last November on her True Prep book tour in New Canaan, CT. One of her anecdotes was about "mummy's" mid-life job crisis; she has moved on from real estate and is now pre-writing for her novel. "Being a pre-writer is a preppy career choice. Anyone can do it and it's good for corresponding with doers." Well I'm far from a mid-life crisis, but this struck a cord. I joked with Ms. Birnbach afterward that I was doing some research and pre-writing for my non-existent blog.

Had it not been for all of the hype of True Prep on my Google Reader I may not have attended. My daily reads have inspired me to buckle down and start my own. After all, I studied journalism and the only thing I have written besides emails and PowerPoint decks since college are Facebook posts. It just seems fitting. Finally, an outlet to chronicle my ventures, likes, dislikes and everything in between.

Cheers!
