Newsmastering for Illinois

I’m now newsmastering (internal link) about Illinois roadway accidents. This through my Vancouver employer. When an accident report comes in matching our criteria, I hurriedly rewrite the story, post it to our client’s blog, then add the URL to Google. (internal link). We are working on ways to get the news faster and to improve turn-around speed.

This sort of writing, which generates my main income, not magazine articles, can be compared to a graphic artist. (internal link) There, the artist doesn’t usually select the job but instead has the employer telling the artist what to do. A fine artist, by comparison, most often selects what they want to create. It’s all a matter of definition and in the end a writer is a writer.
