In this week's Spotlight we feature "Journo's Diary" , by Chris Thomas.
A one-night stand... A new career as a journalist... Constant paranoia.... Constant lustful thoughts... A perverted flatmate... Baked beans... It's a recipe for disaster.
As cadet journalist Rick Hughes stumbles through his new job, he has a few problems. Well, more than a few. A seemingly forgettable New Year's fling preys on his mind as he soon discovers the woman he slept with is a wanted criminal.
This is matched with his less than brilliant start with the Weekend Star and his constant inability to actually ask any women out on a date. And George, his flatmate, is a royal pain in the behind.
Journo's Diary is the day-to-day chronicle of Rick's life as he tries to cope with it all, a job made increasingly difficult when the criminal woman he slept with becomes a major news feature. Things get much, much worse before they get even remotely better...
