Today is my first day of work as the EPL Writer-in-Residence. I came in last week to get keys and email passwords and door passwords and microwave passwords but today is my real first day. It’s my first day because I actually have work to do. Official business. Today is the day I meet my first writer looking for a little help. I’m pretty darn excited about it. I’m so excited that I didn’t even mind taking the bus here this morning. I mean, I didn’t smile the whole bus ride, but I didn’t frown either. That’s a pretty big deal. This job is a pretty big deal. I’m expected to provide a certain amount of wisdom, guidance, advice, assistance, and mentorship to each person who comes into my office or contacts me over the email machine.
This post is all about work. The holidays are over now and most people are back to work. I want you to put me to work for you. I’ve got an office and a chair and internet access and a thermos full of steaming hot ideas to share with you. If you are looking for some help with your writing or just some advice on what to do next or just want to know what it’s like being a writer these days in the age of BuzzFeed.

Call me, email me, tweet me. Let’s get together and work on you getting that Nobel Prize for Literature as soon as possible.
