I mentioned earlier that writing a second series for Converse/Converse All-Star has definitely been the highlight of my writing career…
and it has.
I couldn’t pick a better brand to be associated with.
a few months back, they published the newest batch.
and funnily enough, they’ve been the easiest to work with.
‘send in ideas of what you’d like to write’
so I sent ‘em in.
‘ok, do these.’
I did those.
then they paid me.
and then they posted them.
nice people over there, Converse.
so, here’s a snippet of this last series.Â [and here are all of the old ones]
‘Words of Wisdom’ -Â Writer and globe-trotterÂ Aric S. Queen states his case for why a Gap Year isnâ€™t just a great option, itâ€™s a must.
‘America’s best kept secret…’ -Â Writer and globe-trotter Aric S. Queen waxes lyrical about the virtues of Bend, Oregon, perhaps the greatest little city in America.
[this one, funnily enough, led to both an inner-city argument [see postings] and a relator in Bend mistaking the introduction and taking me for a real [Harlem] Globe Trotter. classic.]
‘Never, never, never, never, change the name of your boat...’ -Â Writer and globe-trotterÂ Aric S. Queen buys a boat in coastal England, and shenanigans ensue.
… there was one more about the lack of music in China [when looking at it per capita], but am guessing with them recently bringing a few bands from there to SXSW, it didn’t make sense. fair play.
