Nothing written for Wednesday’s paper plus a furlough means fewer stories. I’m trying to devote more hours to the football magazine now so that when crunch time comes, I don’t have to ask for as much help from other reporters as I did last year. So while the B section suffers now, the A section will suffer less two weeks from now, and to me that’s a fair trade.
As of this post’s publication, two different versions of my double-length Little League AAA state championship story (“Mudhens go 2-0”) appear on the McAlester News-Capital website. Normally I only put an abbreviated version of my stories online to encourage people to buy the E-Edition of our paper, which I did here. But for reasons I don’t fully understand, someone else put the full version online as well.
If you want to see what my writing really looks like, I encourage you all to check out the full story soon, because it could be just a matter of hours before someone sees the error (or reads about it here) and pulls the second version down.
(abbreviated version: Muckdogs go 2-0 in Saturday tourney games)
