Subject: newspaper interview
Sue, I’m a freelance writer here in Wilson and I was given your name and a little information about your blog, etc. and asked to write a story about you for The Wilson’s Times’ next “My Wilson” insert. I apologize for the late notice, but my story is due by the end of day tomorrow and I’ve got a wild day tomorrow so I was wondering if I could interview you by phone tonight. (Also, I just got my ADD meds filled Friday after two months without them, so I’ve pretty much been running around with my hair on fire and looking down to see if I put pants on every day for a few weeks.) Please call me on my cell at any time: (555) 555-5555. Thanks so much. Look forward to talking with you!
Dear Newspaper Reporter,
If you’re asking me to call you, then you haven’t read too much of my blog. However, being that you actually have to check on whether or not you’re wearing pants, well, you just might be crazier than I am. I’ll call.
