Today I wrote six press releases that all said basically the same thing, just different location, different person reciting the same quote for newspapers across the state. I found out that at least three newspapers ran -- in total -- one of the news releases/articles I wrote last week. Then I took a video news release and turned it into an article that will get printed and read all over the state in medical mags and health pages. I wrote another article that two newspapers immediately picked up. My copy is likely being read by more people than the "riveting stories" I ever wrote about the Legislature. So why am I so sad?
I sent my resume and clips to the Seattle Times today. I felt better.
