I Got A Question And A Gripe

I’m getting back to my novel, so I decided to find a couple of books for research purposes.  Since my book is focused on a young female protagonist who happens to be a newspaper reporter, I discovered two books that also have journalists as the protagonist.

I merely want to see how other writers tackle this sort of hero. There’s another motive though. I’m writing a story with a reporter as my heroine because I want to change the way people view journalists.

So I’m going to read The Shipping News by Annie Proulx, and The Sportswriter by Richard Ford.

I also have a few things more to say about a particular bookstore. And since there’s only one box store left you can guess which I’m talking about. I don’t hate Barnes & Noble, but I’ve got issues with them. I hope they’re reading this, better yet I hope they listen to the podcast.

Go and write, right now.

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
