Final story of the Wichita series is here: http://www.kansas.com/mld/kansas/13454538.htm .
So now what? The Project is complete. I have a story coming out on the Knight Ridder newswire this weekend that includes some material not included in the series, but for the most part, the published portion of this project is over. I'm pursuing some freelance opportunities, but we'll see how those play out -- sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. Beyond that, top priority now is to face the Big What Next: How a person takes a great international experience and builds on it.
I'll be in Wichita next month, for housekeeping and a speaking engagement in Winfield on Jan. 12. And I'll be meeting with editors, plotting the next move in terms of stories and in terms of career. All that's on the horizon. I guess right now the big priority is getting back to Minnesota for Christmas. See the folks, reflect and be thankful. Yeah. Thankful.
