In 2014, I moved – temporarily – to my hometown.
Within weeks, I was racing around the streets of Arborg as a freelance reporter for the Interlake Spectator. Covering Christmas craft sales, the Parade of Lights, the Santa Breakfast, and everything else Christmasy. Santa even gave me an exclusive one-on-one interview.
Then my former editor, Glen, offered another cool opportunity: an opinion column. Um, yes please. This was an chance to veer onto a different path. Write about controversial topics. Unearth stories.
And, if needed, invest in another lock for my door.
