Judy and I have been tag-teaming the editor's role at IMPACT Magazine in Calgary. We got our first issue out early in September that features speed skater Lucas Makowsky on the cover. Judy wrote the story about this incredibly articulate young man who won a Team Pursuit gold medal at the Vancouver Games. IMPACT is Western Canada's premier running, fitness, sport and high-performance magazine with a circulation of about 70,000 copies in Calgary and Vancouver. It's been publishing for 20 years now and we were on a meeting at Island Lake Lodge recently in Fernie BC, and we developed a new tag for the big anniversary -- 20 YEARS RUNNING STRIONG. Clever eh? 


We're well into planning and assigning stories for the next issue that's due out in November. We're going to Lake Louise on Tuesday for our next cover photo shoot with Erik Guay, the Alpine skier who won the World Cup super-G title last year. Erik's Crystal Globe win was the first for a Canadian since Steve Podborski won the overall downhill title in 1982.  We're looking forward to being Lake Louise..

One of the hardest things for a writer to do is write. It sounds weird, but that's the way it is. When you spend your days poring over copy, searching for ideas and words that will tell your story, sometimes the last thing you want to do is write more in the blogosphere.

Well Chris & Judy are taking the plunge into that blogosphere to join this wild and crazy world of the interweb. "Is that what it's called, Judy?"

We'll try to keep you posted on things that are going on at Crystal Writing, or share postings of great writing and stories that we think clients and readers might like.

Thanks for tuning in and feel free to share your thoughts with us.
