I wrote this piece last week. When I originally had the idea a couple of months ago, I had a grand vision in my head for what I wanted it to be. I wanted a long, exploratory piece that really showed a side of Jon that is rarely written about.
It ultimately did not end up being what I envisioned, and I’m fine admitting that. Because of time constraints (I started way too late), I hit what I would absolutely call a wall when writing this thing, and the words I wanted to say wouldn’t come out. But I’m still happy with it and I think it’s good.
I don’t write much any more, at least not in the way of feature stories, but these are still the kinds of stories I really enjoy writing.
