So, had meetings with my respective editors today (four of them! Christ, didn't think there were that many magazines what all needed a gossip columnist) and they're all glad that I'm over whatever it was I caught after my vacation (that I still don't remember taking) and thanks to my lovely volunteers I've actually got a column to give them.
Going on a wing and a prayer for followup however. Who thought that making up gossip could be so taxing?
In any case, another call for volunteers, and for an assistant, I'm not the most organized person out there and could certainly use some help with fact-collection and disregarding.
