The essays are different because ultimately it's things I'm interested in, and I'm really just writing about myself and using those subjects as a prism.
I was fortunate that I was at newspapers for eight years, where I wrote at least five or six stories every week. You get used to interviewing lots of different people about a lot of different things. And they aren't things you know about until you do the story.
I also did an Ozzy piece for him, and so I got hired. Everything happened really fast. I can't give people advice, because everything in my life changed completely in less than a year and it's still not something I am used to.
It's just that what's important there is different there than what's important is here. Here, people care that you wrote a book or that you work in the media.
