“It just takes time. By the time we’re done with this, we’ll have too many…”
These words just came out of Elliot’s mouth as he stood behind me repeating details for my friend Brizette’s next assignment. Last night, we all decided to walk over to Yogurtland in hopes of forming bonds and becoming closer to one another. Although the pictures of us there were blurry and not the best quality, the time we spent there was still enjoyable, and led to more than just bonding.
We were all in a long line at Yogurtland, picking toppings and what not and I was at the front. I quickly paid and was following Brizette out the door where we saw a guy with a weird looking contraption that held a medium sized, white dog. The dog seemed docile and friendly. The vehicle with the dog in it started moving, and we noticed the guy there, who had a remote, controlled it. I think at this point, the thing that really attracted us was the dog inside.
Brizette immediately walked up to him and asked him questions. She was smart and wrote down his contact info too. After paying, more of us came out to see the dog. It turned out the guy was even looking for some press release so it was a win-win situation. Brizette found a new story right unexpectedly outside Yogurtland, which is exactly what she was hoping for and now I’m helping her by photographing the shop at which the guy works at and possibly more of his inventions.
Like Brizette, many of the writers seem nervous about their pieces still but “it just takes time” to find the right story that interests you, or to find the right people to interview.
