What happened to the week??? It feels like yesterday I was crunching holiday deadlines.
Enjoyed a mellow three days (ish) off: a nice mix of a movie with the kids, a couple of assignments, putting together a cople of calendars, two fireworks shows, time with family, shaping a couple of new social media projects for BryonySeries, and working on Henry's story in Before the Blood.
My first day back was actually spent offsite working on a new project. That left three days of the five for everything else. Yikes!
A few less stories this week. No secondaries. And ran wire for Thursday after not one, but TWO Faith stories weren't quite ready for publication. (On one, the main source asked me to hold off a couple weeks, the second couldn't be photographed until Thursday).
WriteOn Joliet last night meant booking out of work a little early; insomnia last night will make addressing the significant amount of "everything else" today rather interesting.
Check out the health, faith, and arts and entertainment calendars. Three of them can be found at the link below. http://www.theherald-news.com/lifestyle/ Gotta Do It, runs each Sunday and often stays on the home page throughout the week.
Feature briefs for Tuesday (health), Thursday (faith), Friday (Arts and Entertainment), and Sunday (People) are also edited (texted and photos) by the lady of this blog, but only the stories have bylines.
Another option: I do post the briefs and calendars on Twitter during the week, so you're welcome to follow me at @Denise_Unland61.
And if you do peek at these stories, to quote our editor Kate Schott, "Thank you for reading The Herald-News." :)
