I just did my first bit of Fortune work in a month. It’s a web column on the World Cup and U.S. economic competitiveness. Kind of a stretch, I know. But I needed to make some use of all those hours I spend reading soccer news online every day, right?
I’ve been off working on my book. I had initially thought I might post comments about whatever chapter or subject I was working on each day, but that didn’t happen. I got into full I Am a Book Writer and I Cannot Be Interrupted mode. Not that it got me to finish the thing. I’ve still got some big empty spots to fill toward the end. But I’m getting there. And maybe, now that I’m back to the daily interruptions of life at Fortune, I’ll actually get around to discussing the book occasionally here. Which was the whole idea of this blog in the first place.
