One of the reasons I became a journalist was because I love telling stories.
I also love gossip, good or bad.
So it’s hard for me to keep quiet about an amazing media opportunity for Hexagon. It was mentioned to me month ago, and since then I have been mailing photographs and samples and discussing prices with the outlet.
“Can you handle hundreds of orders?” my sister asked. Um…if this deal goes through, I’m going to have to. I have been told that my site could get 25,000 hits once the story goes out.
Back to journalism. I have written several stories, such as this one, about a fashion company going under for inability to produce orders. Success, it turns out, can kill.
It’s odd being in the position of not knowing if I’ll be able to get the materials I need on time. Calls and emails today to close to 10 companies that wholesale the items I need have gone unanswered.
So I am vacillating between being very excited, and scared–and trying to stay focused, since the whole thing may not happen.
OMG my email just beeped. PLease let it be the leather guy.
