I saw Bull Garlington present Writer Metrics at Communication Central’s annual conference. Writers and numbers? Writing as productivity, not art? Surely not! But Bull made us comfortable with (simple) numbers, proved that productivity is just what the successful writer is after, and entertained us along the way. His presentation was well organized and easy to follow, and he gave the audience what they needed to get started NOW. Thanks, Bull!

“You know when you drop by a bar to have a quiet beer by yourself. And then some jack-ass sits down next to you and orders a drink and tries to engage you in a conversation about a topic he just heard about on a talk radio show? Chris Garlington is a guy sitting at a nearby table who shouts ‘Shut up jack-ass’ ”

“If there were three urinals in a men’s room, and Chris Garlington was pissing at one of them, I would feel totally comfortable pissing in the urinal next to him … In fact, I would demand it!”
