Dan Gutman
By Brandi Waters
  

1     Dan Gutman was like a lot of people. He had an idea about what he wanted to do. He just didn't have all of the details figured out. He kept trying different things. It took him fifteen years, but he finally figured it out. He found a career that he was good at. It was fun. It made him feel good about himself. People appreciated his work. Finally, all of the pieces had come together.
 
2     Dan Gutman studied psychology in college. Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviors. He got his degree but then decided to continue studying. After two years in graduate school, Dan Gutman decided that psychology was not for him. He wanted to be a writer.
 
3     In 1980, he moved to New York City and started writing. He wanted to write things that were humorous. He started writing as many humorous essays as he could. As it turned out, though, his essays weren't all that funny. Still, he was able to get a few of his essays published. The first piece of writing that he sold was to a local newspaper. They paid him fifteen dollars.
