Hi Matt,

How are you and Willow? Very well I hope.
Time will tell how I am, I suppose. Since I wrote you last, I completed my English degree at Southern Oregon University. In some ways, even that was difficult for me. It's not that I lack the intelligence; I lack the ability to conform.

I write about whatever I'm thinking about without worrying about the constraints of genre or even grammar. A book of my work is published under the title "An Ode To Id" through
Aside from that, I've been looking for a writing job. I interviewed to be the crime reporter at "The Herald and News" and haven't heard back yet. I'm also waiting to hear about another writing job, which I feel more confident of getting.

All My Best,

Sean Nelson
