When I was first appointed the job of editor-in-chief, I was most excited to write this letter, even though I really didn’t know how editors before me have written it.
I don’t know if it’s supposed to be full of witty advice. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be a wise, fearless leader, and break down the paper for you, and one who makes school seem easy by appearing nonchalant about everything. There aren’t really any guidelines, which to me was very exciting.
Now that I’ve been doing it for a while, I find it harder to think of things to write about, without rambling, ranting, or repeating myself (which I probably do anyway).
I’m not going to give you a preview of what’s in the paper. We write these articles for you to find that out. We print the paper so you can read it. I’m not sure if editors of other papers even HAVE a letter from the editor.
I’d rather talk about how amazing my small staff is, how hard they work to put this together for you…but you probably wouldn’t want to read about that, either.
I could also go on and on about finals, and about how the library is staying open an extra hour for us so we can study, and sometimes, they have cookies. But if you don’t want me to write about that, tell me what you do want me to write about…seriously. I’m all ears, and fresh out of ideas. What’s interesting to YOU?
A reoccurring theme of the Horizon, is that unfortunately, people disappear without communicating. Sometimes, these people hold a very important role on the paper. When they do this, others have to put their lives on hold to make sure the paper comes out on time with few errors. It is very stressful when these situations occur, as it did this quarter. So please be patient with us.
Until next time…
