whew!!Done with Module 1

Before the interview I wasn’t nervous but I think, I was rather clueless-the sort of inexperienced clueless. Mind you I had read Module 1 especially Section 1-5 t0 1-6 over and over again but I wasn’t just sure where to start, and how to continue .But then I remembered how a certain writer carried herself and the questions she asked me when she wanted to write my profile and I took heart.

During the interview, it was amazing how question would pop up from her answers and that’s what I think I really did well-the continuity part in search of clarification.I think i did great,its actually the first time I've interviewed someone.

Next time I hope to work on my time, it took longer than I planned may be because I had so many questions to ask I was not that focused.

I agree.

I think the more focused we become during the interview, the easier our job will be in writing the article. I learned that first hand.

I interviewed Barbara twice. The first time, I wasn't clear on what my objective was and it showed when I tried to write the article. During my follow-up interview, I was clear on what Information I needed and as a result, it filled the holes in my article really well.

I'm ready to do it again! I just wish I had more time.

Tina,

The article looks great! I think you did a fantastic job for your first time interviewing. Next time, if you have any questions or are nervous about some aspect of the story, you can always e-mail me with questions and I will give you guidance!

Hi Tina: I was inspired by your writing and Doreen's work. I can see why it was so important to you to have her as one of your first interviews. I felt your passion and am excited about what you will uncover in your next assignment. You did a great job!

Make it a "JOYOUS" Day!

Wow...

... you've sent me to the past, to my first interview as a journalist! I was so nervous and yet so eager to make "all the right questions"!!!

In the end, it's like playing the piano - you follow the music sheet but you also put passion into it... and then, out of nowhere, like magic, you end up playing your own music.

So... keep on playing!
