This week I was surprised to learn that I’m a finalist in the Knight News Challenge. My proposal was a sort of editing tool that could work on a variety of website platforms.
I truly was surprised. Like many journalists, my self-confidence has been deeply impacted as the industry sinks deeper and deeper into financial ruin.
From here, I have to fill out a longer application form by the end of the month. To be honest, I’m very nervous about this whole thing, which makes it hard to concentrate.
Still, I hope to make a good run at the finals. Here’s hoping.
