January 6, 2013 - Trying to stay calm

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Season 14 of the Biggest Loser starts tonight on NBC. I haven't missed a show since season one. This year I've been chosen to write a recap of the show each week for Reality TV Calendar online.

I was so excited about this and now that it's finally here, I'm so nervous. I want to do a good job and I'm so worried I'm going to mess up. Plus, I need to have the recap in to the editor the day after the show airs by noon. Since I work until noon everyday, that means I either have to get up early or stay up late on the night the show airs. I know that I can't recap at the same time the show is airing, so I will need to take notes while I DVR the show. Then I will write the recap from my notes while I rewatch the show on the DVR.

Plus it's a recap not just a paragraph but a minimum of 1000 words per half hour. I'm trying not to get to stressed about this because I know, for me, stess leads to unhealthy eating. I bought a pack of sugarless gum and, if I do start getting any cravings or feel like snacking on something, I'm going to try to chew gum instead.

I think once I get through the first episode and get my first recap posted by the editor, I'll feel better about this. I'll let you know tomorrow.

In the meantime, Reality TV Calendar is still looking for writers for certain shows. Here's the link if it sounds like something you might be interested in.

Wish me luck.

    You are going to do fine! Being nervous is normal. Yes, the timing and deadlines will be a challenge, but I've never seen you back away from a challenge. You can do this! You know you can do this, or you wouldn't have taken the leap to do this. Now, keep the Faith in that leap.
