In The News

I fall asleep with the news on. You’re a reporter in a bullet proof vest. I hear shell fire. I wake up. I’m glad you’re upstairs, not there.

    Definitely adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t think it would be possible to express love in a 140 words. With such short words you were able to capture so much :)well done.

    “Journalists are people too” is a vital, important message. Unfortunately, when this gets presented in fiction, the results are overly earnest, grim, or else presented with too-heavy gravitas.

    Within 140 characters, this piece manages to avoid all of those shortcomings. Instead, it humanizes the reporter’s experience, by framing it within the context of a loved one, who also happens to be a viewer. It balances off the professional risks with the personal connections, without trivializing either. Great work!
