Cross Road Blues

I went to the crossroads, fell down on my knees.

How many times have you been on your knees at the crossroads?

I have been there many times, and I am approaching the crossroads again. In a couple of weeks, I will graduate from Weber State University. I don't have a job lined up and I really don't want one. Of course I will do what I need to do, but what I really want is to have a career as a writer.

Over the last year, I completed the first book I am happy with. I think it's a fun rollercoaster ride, filled with ghosts, skeletons, spectral trains, Voodoo gods, and zombies. What could be better?

Without a book deal (don't worry, I am out there doing everything I can to get published), I am left with all of the regular questions. What will you do after you graduate? Will you go to grad school? Will you get a job? What can you do with an English degree?

Hence at this crossroads I am about to ask the Lord above "Have mercy, now save poor Wyatt, if you please."

Then I am going to enjoy the journey. To quote Neil Peart--Anything can happen.
