it's been edited 7 times

I redid the feature story that I apparently couldn't write. IT's on imported foods. I have basically trashed the last article and started all over again.
Then I edited seven times.
Then I took it home and edited it again.
Then I made Steve edit it, cos he has what they call a "business brain."
He slashed it some more. But I don't mind that he does that, I know he wants me to keep my job as much as I do.

Then I edited it just one more time.

And now I have to hand it in, and I'm shitting myself. I have, including this feature, three features to prove that I can do this, because thereafter I will be unemployed.

Please hold thumbs for me!!!

Holding thumbs? I'll do that but my fingers are crossed too. Good luck!

BTW Will post your interview questions later today. My mind was a bit crappy last night and I couldn't think of anything good.

Have you considered that your shitting yourself may be the real reason they are trying to get rid of you and not your writing as they pretend. We had one of those in our office until they finally fired him. I must say, the two-year old took it like a man.

Thanks guys for all your positivity after my whining.
Ed - no. I have done a 360, am trying my hardest, but have a laissez faire attitude of, if it wasn't meant to be, it wasn't meant to be. The other staff are being super supportive as well, telling me I shouldn't worry, so I'm trying not to.
Let's hope it works! :)

Jon I reckon you should make a book of your riddles mate. They have made my day every time they feature on this blog.

How good are you with food and trends for retailers? :) Actually, don't go there, it'll stifle your creativity...

A Fork said...

lol, do you think an entire article of bad rhymes would go down well? :)

Peas on Toast said...

Mate, I see you maing a similar yet better book than Roald Dahl's "REvolting Ryhmes." CEpt yours wouldn't be revolting.

I'm telling you, it would be a winner.

OK: CAN SOMEONE PUH-LEASE HELP ME WITH HTML!!!

As you can see I've tried to link my bloggy friends on the side. I've stuck in their names, but seem to have dollar signs on either end. What am I doing wrong??
Anyone have a step by step method for me??

Your links should look like this in your template

(li)(a href="http://yaddayadda.com")Name Of Person(/a)(/li)

Change the () for < and >. I hope this works and doesn't display as a link...

thanks Jon, will try it out now...
