Listening to every heart
Thank you, my friends. There are some stories that write themselves; others, especially when dealing with more than one person [magazines tend to go in odd numbers, you interview one, three, or five people for a feature...never even numbers. Why IS that? I don't really know...I will have to look it up...oops, got side-tracked here...]
But when you have more that one subject to interview, it's an "oh CRA..." moment. I could give issue at a MINIMUM of 750 words per person and stay relevant, and not even sprinkle it with superlatives...and I need to compress three folk into 950 words.
Shucks and Darn.
So now I have to go winnow the wheat from the chaff, folk, because I just finished up with the interviews of three fine folk for the winter issue...and I can tell you right now - they each deserve a spot of their own!
EBM...thanks, my friend...
Jo, I don't know if my book is on her shelf or not - I guess I should go find out! I know it's in our Public Library... Thank you, dear!
Thanks, Sue. I'm having fun!
Pete...thank you, my friend. I'm glad you're keeping track on this...one never knows where it will lead...[maybe to OK to do a story that starts in KS? Stranger things have happened, yes?]
Thank you, Bob!
Margherita, I'm sorta liking it, too!
Kathleen, thank you, my dear. Thank goodness I don't have to "rely" on the salary. I'm currently [finally?] reading Dorothy Parker's biography What Fresh Hell is This and I swear, I'm glad I have the time to finally indulge!
