Contenders Magazine has a blog called Little Losers Blog: A Journal of the Perpetually Up-and-Coming. I wrote the kickoff article of their new series called Between Then and Now. Safety Nets and Self-Sabotage
‘Between Then and Now’ is a series of personal essays that examine the strange distance that separates our past ambitions and our present pursuits. If you’d like to contribute to the series, send your story to email@example.com.
It is similar to my first blog I ever wrote last year, What do You Want to Be When You Grow Up? but focuses more on the process of stripping away your comfort zones to find out where you want to be. Check it out!
Contenders strives to be a premier jumping off point for post-graduate, 20-something writers looking to extend their intellectual investigations into the ‘real world.’ It is a showcase of their talents, their interests, and their aspirations.

Either way, we hope you’ll come with us.
