Delayed Gratification

It has been edited in parts, and the name of the byline is not quite mine, but who cares?* My essay, "Delayed Gratification," is up on Nerve.com as one of their featured pieces! Check it out: http://nerve.com/features/true-stories/delayed-gratification.

N.B.: Family members and anyone worried about knowing too much about me, read at your own risk. Nerve is, you know, a sexy site, with sexy stuff in it. Also, they italicize an awful lot of words.


*Okay, I kind of do care. I'm trying not to! I remember this feeling from working at the Swarthmore student paper, the Phoenix. Focusing on the edits is silly. I'm on Nerve! The world can see me! The one comment that's up so far is incredibly sweet!

yay, congrats! it looks great (byline aside, grumble) – not sure why that commenter was complaining about needing proofreading... i only noticed one major typo.

"the hips of gwen verdon and the face of a vermeer" amazing.

thanks, rossling! really.

also, they fixed the byline, which was nice of them.

looks awesome dude. nice to briefly and enjoyably relive it (rather than the first time around, which was a lot darker, i recall.) but man, no name changes to protect the heavily implicated? brutal.

i hope not brutal. ben got to read & approve it before it was published, and he gave ross a heads up ...
