Reader's Diary #2001- Matt Blackwood: Blink

Matt Blackwood's short story "Blink" deals with a reporter covering a protest and while it's an intense, fast scene, there's still time for him to have a bit of an existential, professional crisis. He's reflecting on what got him into the profession, the ethics, and then he has an epiphany which guides his next move.

Not being a reporter I cannot state whether or not it's an accurate reflection of the career, but it certainly felt real and of course, many of us even in other professions go through such doubts and moments of reflection.

It's a powerful, smartly paced piece.
