Successful professional writers and educators have a special kind of resume, called a Curriculum Vitae (or, simply, "CV"). The CV is designed to capture all of one's professional accomplishments, the work experiences and publications that qualify a person for prestigious academic appointments. Here's more or less how I got where I am:
With an umbilical cord noosed around my neck. I made my way into Oklahoma. I made it out alive.
The Education Begins
Early in school, I stepped on a pellet of poop left in the middle of the classroom by a colleague who reluctantly admitted to our furious German teacher that it was his. The school provided an easy environment in which to excel. I got promoted out of my classroom for many of the lessons so that I could learn with the older kids. I mostly remember joking around and wondering why my work was never done when the teachers came looking for it.
I don't want to paint a bad portrait of my parents or our community. Obviously, the umbilical cord thing I did all by myself. We were all doing the best we could. I can only imagine what life was like in the farm country and coalmines where my parents were raised. Anyhoo, at this point, they uprooted our family from the part of town where the strip clubs were so that we could live in a safer area and go to school with the kids who came from old money, insofar as there is old money in Central Florida.
