Now and then, I get invited to journalism classes to talk to students about making a living as a writer. Last year I got a particularly special invitation: to speak to a room full of budding journalists at the Minnesota Daily, the college paper of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. This was the place where I learned about writing as real work—late at night and on weekends, cranking out profiles and essays to see them dropped within a twine-tied bundle of papers the next day at the cafe where I worked.
