My senior year in college (2008), I took a class in writing for magazine. For one assignment, I decided I wanted to do a profile of Colby Rasmus, who was in Memphis at the time. My school is just about an hour from Memphis, so I called up the Redbirds and scored clubhouse access and a sit-down with Colby, telling them I was a freelance writer.
I never went it off anywhere to be published, so consider this my self-publishing. I've never had anybody besides friends and family read it, and I figured it would be enjoyed here. It's titled "The Future is Now," and I've posted a link.
Hope you enjoy.
(P.S. I wasn't sure if this should be a FanPost or a FanShot, so if I picked the wrong one, just say so and I'll re-post.)
