The Profile Article
This post is an extension of the previous one. Writing an article on a deadline is tough, but doable. The profile piece was a little harder than the first one when writing it on a deadline. Choosing a person to write a profile on was one of the hardest parts because, while there are many interesting people out there, it's hard to make what they do news and relavent to other people. The other challenging aspect of this piece was finding people to interview. It needed to be someone that knew the person but was also tied in with what I am writing about. Doing those two things along with getting the interviews and writing the actual piece is what made the profile article much more challenging to write on a deadline than the first article.
