About Me

My name is Dan Nguyen and as a brand new holder of my BA in English, I figured I would give blogging a try to perhaps hone my writing craft. Maybe I'll even use this opportunity as a test run to see if I can get into some sort of column writing!

I'm 24 years old and I'm opinionated. I'm flawed, yet I'm persistent. If I don't know all the facts on a subject I won't be talking about them, because I come across as a big enough idiot as it is.

I was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1986 and from a young age, gravitated towards writing. After moving to Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1996, I participated in all the writing groups given at my middle and high schools. This only intensified as I began college at South Dakota State University in 2005. I am a published poet, and continue to do that in my off-time (what little I have), but realize that in the real world, the ability to knock out a bangin' sestina won't get me far.

In this blog I will give my opinions on a variety of topics, although more often than not, I'll be talking about sports. Feel free to subscribe, comment and leave your opinions too. For contact information, see the disclosure policy.
