What was your first job as a journalist?
Rise Over Run Magazine. It's a now-defunct e-mag that got started in south central Kentucky. I'd never written before that.
Have you ever used a typewriter?
I have! I used one my freshman year of high school, and it was so retro, even then. But I remember being proud to know how to use one.
What tools and software do you use to do your job?
So quite controversially, it seems, I don't use Microsoft Word--I type on Open Office--and I still carry a voice recorder from the 1980s.
