Remember that article I started live-writing in front of an audience? Last week MapQuest published it:
Thanks to Mike Yessis at MapQuest for editing it, Molly Kravitz at Connelly Partners for helping arrange my stay, my wife for accompanying me on the trip, and—of course—my folks for watching the kids.
It was a fun piece to research, write, and produce. The writing took me a bit longer than usual, in part, I think, because of the live-write. Writing in front of an audience compelled me to take a different approach than I usually do, trying to make the text readable before it was really ready for other sets of eyes. I’ll probably try the live-write stunt again, but more likely for a shorter piece.
