I’ve been hired as a syndicated columnist for the Yangtse Evening Post!
Thank you to everyone who reads my posts and shares what I write. After reviewing what I do here, and sampling a few writings specifically for the YEP, I was asked to do a regular column. The only stipulation they had was that I limit myself to 50 words per article.
It’s a challenge because writing in 50 word increments has helped to sharpen my skills as a writer. I’m forced to consolidate my words and be concise with my delivery. This one will be published next, but I’m giving you the early edition:
The Greatest Challenge!
“To truly challenge oneself, you must step into an unpredictable situation that will shake you to the core of your being, in a faraway land, surrounded be people who don’t even speak the same language as you do, with nothing but your wits and indomitable spirit to see you through.”
~ Yusef Wateef

Two few of the goals my writings are going to achieve:
