Every time I update my online portfolio, I remember how many cool stories I’ve written over the past three years at The Indiana Gazette.
While it’s true that I’ve been writing significantly less — because my efforts have been focused on the digital aspect of the company — some of this year’s story have been a lot of fun to write.
Here are some of my favorites from the past few months:
Couple gets married over Niagara in helicopter adventure
We all know I’m a sucker for writing a good love story — and this was certainly one. Plus, it helps that I went to journalism school with the bride!
For Brice, emotions guide songwriting
I’ve interviewed a few celebrities and artists over the years, but country singer Lee Brice was certainly the best interview I’ve had with one. He really opened up to me about his music.
Region home to kayaking, canoeing opportunities
It’s always great to be able to combine my passions. In this case, I combined my love of the outdoors and the area’s recreational opportunities with my passion for writing.
Pokemon Go craze sweeps Indiana
Remember when you couldn’t walk down the street without almost accidentally hitting a Pokemon Go player? I do. And I wrote about it.
Shelter dog finds home at care facility
A collaboration with videographer James Nestor, this cute story about an elderly shelter pup adopted by a local care facility went viral.
