"We need a human"
Still working on this missing persons story. Plenty of data, interviews with police, talking with advocates... and it still reads like dog shit.
First, hard lesson in how important people are to your story. The way this story stands, it's unreadable, because there's no heart to it. There's no person it currently points to and says, "these are the ramifications of these policies."
Going to be working to change that. This story matters a lot to me, and I need to make sure I do it right. Busy week ahead after I return from D.C. (currently here for a wedding).
