On Writing, Thoughts

A gaping hole on page six

The third week as The BV’s editor-in-chief will be better than the second.

The staff worked hard, and week two would have been a great edition if I had only double-checked the exported files. But I didn’t.

On page six, there was a gaping white box in the middle of a review. It was about the size of a review box which holds the rating and key points review. The box didn’t export with the story for some reason, and that just didn’t look good.

In the midst of working with the newspaper’s advisor to crank out some real change, I’m also tackling school work–which should be my priority, but, if we’re being honest, it isn’t. The paper is.

Today was the double header of men’s and women’s basketball. They both won, which was great and all, but I was happier when my top sports editors said they had recaps and photos of both games for me to get online ASAP.

The BV is going to be a print weekly and an online daily. It’ll take time, but we’ll get there.
