I learned this week that The Christian Science Monitor will publish an essay I wrote on the nature of being a "shoe guy," i.e., a guy who owns many pairs of shoes and is keenly aware of the shoes of others.
In the essay I discuss how I became a shoe guy, what it's like being a shoe guy and the pair that transformed me into a shoe guy.
A pub date is TBA.
The essay will appear in The Home Forum, which from what I can tell is wide open for personal essays. It pays decent too ($150)
