Craig’s Published Writing

typewriter 300x225 Craigs Published WritingThis is a sampling of what I’ve written over the years. It doesn’t include the sites I’ve created for major publishers or being the managing editor in charge of content programmed to millions of people daily. It also doesn’t include the print, TV and radio work I’ve done, but it’s a nice sampling through the years.

Please let me know if you have any questions about any of it. Some are serious, others are fun and a few might make you cringe.

Here’s a story written in the Seattle Times about the video game writing and content work I’ve done:

So I just read your 15 fashion mistakes to correct and I agreed on 14 of them. But, I was just wondering, what is so wrong with wearing a baseball hat when guys get older? Thanks

There’s nothing wrong with wearing a baseball hat, in fact I have one on right now. It’s all about when you choose to wear it. Weekend kicking around the house — perfect. Coaching the kids — baseball team — right on. Hitting the town with your wife — leave it at home. Earning respect as you get older is important — and like it or not, what you wear goes a long way. Thanks for the comment — and I’ll take 14 out of 15 any day.
