I spent a little time in TV on the local level, Charlaine, as a host. I had a difficult time dealing with the "hurry up and wait" of putting on a show. We would have to be on set at 7 AM, but by the time the set and script and taping were worked out, I really didn't get to work until four or five hours later. I enjoyed TVs creativity, but it's a very different work than print.

Oh, gosh, as a TV reporter, everything goes SO FAST! But on the programming side, it takes four hours to shoot a 30 second promo, and days to edit it.

And it's so crazy--it took me a while to get used to the sloooow pace of publishing. Now I've learned it's so reassuring, and nice to be able to edit and revise..and know a schedule in advance.

So--our work metabolisms are all different!
