Apparently some people want to be interviewed to promote their business, especially if said business is currently going nowhere fast. Some common sense on my part would have saved a pointless trek in the rain today. Oh well... live it, learn it as they say.
One of my biggest problems is what I call my 'ostrich mode'. Not being able to take a step back and think rationally, basically my inablity to take my head out of the article sometimes.
I do think I made huge progess in this today however, despite my miscalculated little excursion. I got my voice back and started talking to 'the reader' instead of talking to myself and assuming the reader would know everything I was privy to.
My writing is better, my article better by miles and most importantly my confidence is back. Looks like we may have a lead feature that is worthy of its place in the centre fold. We hope anyway!
