I hit my marks. It is a badge of honor for me. I get my assignments (for school and for print) in on time if not early. The times when a hard deadline really came in to play for me is when I covered sports at the University of New Mexico for the community college. We were a weekly, but the majority of times we would cover a game was the day before design – so everything had to be in pretty quickly.

I think I work differently under deadline. I don’t know if my writing is any better or worse, I think I just think quicker. When I work a longer assignment I am more of a painter and when it has a fast-approaching deadline I’m more of a photographer. But with words.

It is kind of formulaic when a deadline is close. Get the quotes, get the pics, figure out the structure, insert everything. Next day journalism isn’t the most complex thing in the world – but it can be fun.

I wish I had my full catalog of past articles with me because it would be fun to look at everything with a clear head – try to figure out if I actually am better one way or the other.
