Not too long ago, one of my editors instructed me to write about my hobbies and interests. It wasn’t an easy project to begin with because I was thinking about her stringent rules and the general reading market of her publication. I was naïve then and was very eager to please. I wanted to make a good impression and I wanted folks, women mainly, to enjoy their reading. But over time, and with my editor’s input, I soon discovered how wrong my initial approach was. It was like a columns page you usually find at the back of a magazine.
