Up all night

Today’s update took all night to write. I do mean all night: from approximately 11:30 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. I was researching and writing cases and doing very little else. (Mostly cause I felt guilty for not updating for ten days straight.) It wasn’t the number of cases — though I did add 15, up from my usual target of 10 — but the content: most of the cases were barely six months old, and several were highly publicized disappearances with a lot of articles etc. to read. Michelle Parker took forever. Ayla Reynolds took forever. But on the flip side we have Lisa Hearne, one of those “few details are available” cases that took a few minutes to write. So there you go.

I think cases like Michelle’s and Ayla’s showcase what Charley does best. I spent hours reading articles for those two, and condensed both cases down to six paragraphs (Michelle) and four (Ayla), so you can read for like ten minutes and get all the essential facts. Charley’s like the Wikipedia of American missing persons.

    That’s a very apt analogy.
