Okay readers, I think I am experiencing more journalistic angst. Is this the only time I am going to write from now on? Just when I have angst to share? No, no, no! I promise I won't! I am all ready to write today but have become waylaid by my next project - a 1500 word magazine article (the next part of my uni assessment). Unfortunately, it is due in three weeks! However, I still have one more week to finish the profile piece I am working on - or rather the two profiles I am writing, not yet knowing which one has the best "legs". I have all these ideas for stories but putting them into words and making them interesting for other people to read is hard work! And in fact, does what I find interesting actually interest anyone else? That is the question… So, after attending uni this week (I got 9/10 for my description assessment!!) I discovered that due to my impending holiday, I no longer have the luxury of time for my next assignment. My brain box is working overtime (usually at 3am) thinking of a story.
And, of course, my blog is suffering the most in my pursuit of journalistic excellence. I am not writing nearly enough. My journal is gathering dust too. There are just not enough hours in the day! Maybe I can write about the extortionist banana prices?
Isn't this (above) and amazing ceiling? It's in the library at uni & is made up of hundreds of old library books. What a sensational idea! It looks brilliant and also, make a great sound insulator.
This is a photo of the 1896 Olympic Marathon. It was won by Greek, Spiridon Louis in 2:58:50. Maybe I could write about THAT? Oh yes, but I am trying to take a break from writing about running stuff All The Time. Speaking of which, I have sent in my first two columns to R4YL and am waiting for feedback about re-writes or total overhauls but as yet, nothing. It will all come at once, on 21 September, the day before we go away for two weeks. I know it. I am steeling myself for it. Time to walk the dog now as she is pacing, making noises and generally throwing the Guilt Trip at me. This weekend I intend to run 10 miles at Road Runners, my longest run since the Gold Coast. I have the Sydney Half Marathon in only three weeks or so and I am just not sure if I can even finish!! Ha, ha
