Streetfighters in the Guardian

I had a nice surprise today when I learned the Guardian Society blog was running a story on my Street Fighters project, after hearing about it through a post I’d written for New Start yesterday. I’m touched – and encouraged – by how nice they were about the work. I was starting to lose heart with it all again – I have phases where I really get fed up with the indifference I feel like I meet to all the subjects I cover and I’m going through one of those at the moment. My fault no doubt for picking unglamourous and rather ‘worthy’ topics but I frequently miss the support and instant feedback I used to get when working on daily newspapers. So thank you Patrick and Society for giving me heart. Now to find some funding because working unpaid while also studying part-time is not good for my mental state….
