The assignment dance.
I was given a new assignment yesterday. It's a feature, 800 words on spec but what makes it interesting is that it is for a major newspaper. A proper one, one that people have heard of and possibly even read.
I was so thrilled when I got the call (and yet baffled how the chap got my mobile number) that I danced around the room for about ten minutes. After the dancing had finished I celebrated with a cup of Earl Gray.
Now I have to write it, and I can't think of anything interesting to say. Maybe a bit more coffee will help. Argh.
