I had a meeting today with the daily paper's main editor and some local charity people to do a series of about 15 human interest feature profiles this fall for Sunday papers September through November. It's my normal freelance rate, but it's extra money and better, it's a chance to write creatively, which I don't get to do much for money anymore (I do a lot of news and business). The editor actually called me two weeks ago and asked if I'd do it; I thought there'd be maybe a handful of us freelancers juggling stories, but as it turns out, he wanted just me to handle the project. I'm not saying I don't deserve the break; it just seems odd, since we have other freelancers who'd like the work too. I'm not a bad writer, but I'm not extraordinary at it, either. But I won't complain! My main concern is ensuring I don't write stuff that is so sappy or sentimental and formulaic that I send readers into Eyeroll Land off the bat.


More thoughts on DMC and J/W and all that J/E stuff cropping up, as well as some faint bitching as to an annoying aspect of fandom 'pairing' stuff )
