My next column is due Friday.
I always have anxiety the week before my deadline. Even though every time it’s fine, I always worry anyway. Even though it’s just 500 words, it takes a lot out of me. Especially since it’s my opinion– not just quoting sources. Writing a column is much tougher than a regular story. It’s more vulnerability.
Deep breath. The week before my column I usually crave time alone. I don’t have much to say to anyone. I take everything more seriously.
Is there a prayer for journalists?
I will pray that God will speak through me, and give me powers of concentration, reason, and confidence.
