The new editorial calendar is done. January through June of 2006 are planned ... well almost. You see, the publishing of the new editorial calendar has opened the floodgates for article proposals. Now, I have to take the planning a step further and go, issue by issue, and decide what to put where. This is my absolute favorite and most troubling part of my job.
I love getting all of these brilliant ideas for articles. It's great seeing others come up with, and improving upon, ideas we had while planning the calendar. Talking with writers about their ideas, sometimes molding them into a neat package to complement other articles is exciting.
