Today, I had my first ICE Academy training session. Yeah, I'm still in college, but I'm leaning toward a job as a special agent in a certain division of ICE. I'm an investigator, and if I could, I would quit college and become a private investigator, but being talented means you have to have experience and I haven't gotten that yet. Sure, I do articles for the school newsletter, but that isn't enough. I love creative writing, and I especially love the mystery I'm working on now, which I'm happy to say has reached 55,000 words. Go me!
The other day, however, I was offered the chance to write an article that I REALLY love, but he topic had involved a friend of mine. I turned it down. Maybe I shouldn't have. Maybe it was my only chance to do a front page story, but I just couldn't.
This brings me to my question. What would you do if you had to chose? Have you had a similar experience that you would like to share?
