Another week, another Weekly Roundup! I’m supposed to write new articles every day, but our regional football preview has taken up a lot of my time recently. I spent a good 75 percent of Saturday, for example, banging out articles on the non-football programs (cheerleading, pom squad, band) at McAlester High School, all of which had to be written (including cuts for photos) by today.
I’ll spend this coming week on the seven actual football teams I have to preview, plus spend most of Friday at an MHS scrimmage on the road. I also have to produce a story for our “Quicksilver” special section, which is geared towards our older readers.
While I have two viable ideas for Quicksilver, I haven’t done more than make initial contact with either person, so I’ll also need to interview, write, get photos and caption everything before this coming Thursday.
I figure I have one more week of diminished daily production, then I should get back to producing about 10-12 stories a week, hopefully on a wide array of sports and teams. Until then!
