Good morning all. I need, well quite honestly I'm not sure what I need. Advice, a pep talk, suggestions, past experiences, etc. I received an e-mail this morning from the Features editor of the local newspaper (a Gannett paper!) I had asked a couple of years ago about restaurant critic positions. Now they are looking for one and she got my e-mail from the editor and asked me to apply for the job. It's for one review a week (paid) at middle to high end restaurants. Thanks to Cheftalk I have a couple of published examples of my writing to offer. I'm nervous about if I got the gig, about actually performing it. So before you offer any congrats, I don't have the gig yet, but do you have anything to say? Thanks and keep your fingers crossed for me. While not a full time gig I have always wanted to do something like this! Thank god I saved the article "So you want to be a restaurant critic" by my critic hero Phyllis Richman! Now I just have to find it!
