    I am not asking about pizza or french fries.

    Have you tried you hand in any other medium that involves the fine art of writing such as poetry, short story, novel, etc. I have a couple notebooks of poetry and a few short stories I want to turn into longer pieces. What about yourselves?

    Like so many good journalists, I am a failed writer of creative fiction.
  5. I've noticed that the more I write non-fiction the harder it becomes to write fiction. But I definitely have a lot of ideas.

    I've shitcanned my attempt at the Great American Novel and am toying with the idea of a collection of short pieces...sort of wry narratives...my idea is to be something of a heterosexual, less funny, more socio-politically oriented version of David Sedaris.

    Well ... I've served in two branches of the military. Does that count?

    I myself once dabbled in pacifism. Not in Nam, of course.

    Sedaris is funny. He had a good Atlantic pieces a month or two ago called Gay Husbandry, or something like that.

    I made a documentary. Does that count as dabbling in another medium? Or are we really just talking about writing in other genres?

    My brain wouldn't kick-start this morning, so I wrote a song. Crappy, but it was a good exercise to get up and get to work.

    I have dabbled in TV, radio, new media, scriptwriting, graphic design, mixed-media collage and witchcraft.

    I wrote some amazing, emotional non-journalism stuff in high school, but somehow in college my brain just shut itself off. Guess I didn't need that outlet anymore. Kinda disappointing.
