My gmail account has taken a beating recently, and I have The Pendulum to thank. After becoming the features editor (AP style says don’t capitalize, weird right?!) I’ve been swamped. Brainstorming and assigning stories, budgeting papers, editing copy is not as easy as it looks. And it really doesn’t look that easy.
Despite the sudden increase in responsibility, I’m looking forward to the semester. I have been working closely with the arts & entertainment editor, Rebecca Iannucci, and we’ve got some great things coming for the style section. We’re hoping to have a column in each issue, a style blog, and some excellent multimedia coverage. Until the semester gets underway, I’m guess I’m going to have to get used to emailing constantly and solving problems on short notice. Not bad skills to master.
