My semester project has been to find my voice in the industry of sports writing. Part of doing this has been a back-and-forth exchange with an established writer, coupled with documenting the process. I have kept that in a journal, which I will transcribe to the internet, but also will bring the journal in during our class presentations. I feel like the writing about the process piece shows the ups and downs of the past couple months; frustrations, breakthroughs and learning experiences born out of humility.
This has been a challenging project because it didn’t go exactly as I originally expected. It has been my experience that expectations often lead to disappointments- and this time was no different. However, I realized early on that this was not going to be how I had planned it and that allowed me to be open-minded and get the most out of the experience. I look forward to hearing about others experiences as well as sharing my own.
