Well, I'm finally going to write that BB story...(3 posts)
After 8 mos. of research on the topic, I'm going to write that story. Something like Bed Bugs 101.
I never meant for it to become an 8 mos. affair, but I have OCD and when I start looking at something I turn it over and over which is why I deserve a damn Pullitzer. Bed Bugs turned out to be way bigger than I ever thought. I told my editor it had to be a series, it was that complex. I told her it would be unethical to do a sensational story and I wouldn't do that.
Then there was the local angle and the this angle and the that angle during which I now had my personal angle to add.
My editor was getting bitchy.
So I am going to bang it out and keep it simple and stripped down. I think for bed bugs 101 the primary thing people should know is VISUAL CONFIRMATION. Only took me 8 mos. to get there.
I'm open to ideas which you can post here or in PM.
Tracey-Dick (Winston--you are probably the only one here who'll get that. )
what about how peopel are afarid to talk about it t their family and freinds so you never know who or who has bb which will keep teh infestation going. peole are afraid of being stigmatized (like AIDS)
Aw, hun, I know. Believe me I know. Right now basic education is the thing which may help with all the other symptoms.
