Not gonna believe it........

Get this... the kid with only a H.S. diploma to her name is now a correspondent writer for one of my local papers.... Just finished my 2nd article that will run in this Sundays paper...

I'm beginning to think that maybe I'm a little on the smart side.... scary thought, huh?... but seriously,... I mean I never took any journalism classes in high school... never worked on the school paper... yet here I am writing newspaper articles... Go figure?!....

I will say that the articles are pretty boring... the sorta stories I always skipped over when reading the paper....

My job is to attend local city meetings... take notes... and then write an article on the (boring ass) meeting I attended... So far they only have me set up for 2 different meetings... The Economical Development Corp. and the Municipal Utility District..... but its a start, eh?...

Sometimes things just happen... and this definetly just happened...

Reis, You may be blonde but yo have more up top than you let on and I don't just mean hair! I don't see why you can't do something like this. Just think, it might even go into a full time reporter job.

Sit through your boring meetings and make them as interesting as you can. But don't be like other journalists and tell things out of context to make it interesting. Most of the time the whole truth is there just not in the order that it happened changing the whole meaning of what happened.

Have funn

Reis...honey, with your writing skills, I'm not surprised. You are gifted, and I'll bet the boring ass meetings are a little less so with you there and it is probably less boring for your having written it!

Congratulations! Guess we were all correct in saying your a talented writer. (My first ticket) Those meetings are not so boring when you get involved in the matters in local gov. I spend a lot of time at public meetings and wish there was some one with your skill to put a good public awareness to the issues. Have fun and enjoy the job!

Cause some one to think and start a chain reaction. . . .

Jack SO NOT in a box!

Congrats sweety on the job and the front page! You can study writing/journalism your whole life and never be a writer it is gift. You have been proving yourself here for some time, doesn't it feel good to get paid for something you enjoy.

Look how far you have made it since we first met here... You are learning to stand on your own and your confidence is growing it is a wonderful thing to see you finally coming into your own. Just remember to occasionally look back and see how far you have made it and know you have accomplished all this on your own. Don't forget to give yourself credit where credit is due. We have been here with you every step of the way for moral support and occasionally give you a nudge back on track, but you did all the work. Keep at it before you know it you'll have your own column on the front page, what the hell shoot for national syndication. You can do it!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not leaving hugs this time I am going to bow to you on all you have accomplished this year. You are a wonderful person and you never cease to amaze me with your strength and tenacity when life starts to knock you around you come back punching harder. Take care lady and call me soon.

Welcome to "The Beat" working as a stringer and attending all those meetings will pay off in the future....never can tell when one of boring and mundane meetings will drop a bombshell

From a guy who wore out a few typewriters and note pads, a suggestion or two

Take good notes
Make sure you spell their names correctly
Don't believe much a politician tells you....there is almost always a motivation for what they do..
Weare a short skirt....distracts the men...
Never date a client or someone you are covering....again they have a motivation...

Good luck and drives em nuts.
