I got a call today from my editor and good news: she really loved my radio host story! After working so hard on it, it feels unbelievably awesome to hear her tell me my hard work paid off. However, I needed one more voice in my story so in an hour I called up three people, raced to the radio station and talked with Teresa Davis, program director at Clear 99. Her quotes were great and I had written them in the story and sent it back to my editor. We’re hoping it’ll be published by tomorrow, but if not it’s on the budget for Sunday’s front page!
Finally getting one published is inspiring – I feel like with one under my belt I have a renewed urge to power forward and keep chugging on. Hopefully my other stories soon to come will be just as solid as this first.
