Fluff

... just because this makes me happy ... I republish this post from 2009 ... hope it makes you happy too!

Reporters write hard stories (investigative, government, anything about money) and they also write soft stories.

Soft stories we sometimes call Fluff. I love fluff. It's personal, interesting, and can be emotional.

I love all kinds of stories, even the difficult ones (the young man coming back from Iraq, the teacher losing her job after 10 years).

I love other kinds of fluff, too. You know, ice cream, cake, candy. But I like the hard stuff too. You know, pretzels, Doritos, peanuts
