Blown Away

        It is my day off and I am looking for something to entertain me. I did not get much sleep last night and am a literally full of bologna. (I ate a pound this morning.) I picked this film seeking some mild entertainment. Alas however I got it.

I must put in this line and say. I was never really blown away by this thriller. Sure it had a great cast with Jeff and Lloyd Bridges fittingly playing father and son. 

There was a great U2 song palyed in part of this film there was even a cameo of my favorite composer John Williams composing the Boston Pops Orchestra. 

Alas all these elements DO NOT make up a great film. I did not sleep at all last night but now I may be ready. Thankfully this flick was free on On Demand so I only lost time and not money of this movie.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
