Rolling man

May 8, 2008

As you’ve noticed, I’ve been using Jeff Cutler dot com to keep my fans and investors updated on the progress of the ’08-’09 writing sabbatical. Frequent updates help readers understand the progress I’m making in various writing arenas and alert them to challenges I face.

Well, this week was probably the best and craziest one I’ve had since the sabbatical began.

Yes, I’ve already landed some column gigs and other writing projects. I’ve interviewed luminaries in sport and entertainment and have submitted those pieces to a variety of publications. And I’ve developed a number of larger, long-term projects.

Sit down now. This week I was able to…

-clarify the copyright situation with my first book and ensure that I have full rights to redo the book with any publisher
-attract a couple national publications to my writing (and possibly sell one of my most recent profiles – update to come on that)
-develop another full-length book idea and start to form the outline for it
-contact a superstar columnist at the New York Times and exchange info (and I might even appear in one of his columns)
-and brainstorm a number of other projects including a story about the 2007 AA pitcher of the year, a feature on scooters, and a number of tech columns for an Apple news site

So, even though it’s only Thursday, my week has been rolling along quite well. Stay tuned for more details on these and other new projects.
