For day 18 of the 2015 Platform Challenge, the task is a daunting one. We need to contact an expert (in the field of writing and publishing) for an interview post to be featured on our blog. You can check out the details here: http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/there-are-no-rules/contact-an-expert-for-an-interview-post-day-18-of-the-2015-october-platform-challenge
Wow! It has been so many years since I interviewed anyone. I need to go back through the file drawers in my mind and pull that skill set out of mothballs!
I need to perform the following steps:
Decide on an expert. Track down their contact information.
Think of some questions *before* contacting the expert. (It would be rather embarrassing to contact someone, have them say yes, and then not be able to come up with any intelligent questions for that person!)
Repeat above steps as many times as necessary to secure an interview.
Send the subject the list of questions.
Edit it into a good blog post.
This is not something that can be done in a day…maybe not even a week or a month! But I will definitely start working on it.
*Runs off to see who is good “expert interview” material and might actually say yes*
Feel free to stop back from time to time to see if I can complete this task. I’ll keep the porch light on for you.
