I remember one assignment (about a farmer with a race car) that I could not get a hold of the guy and the deadline was looming. Finally on a Friday I got a hold of him and made arrangements to meet and interview him at the racetrack Saturday. Turned out to be one of my better stories. But it was very stressful when I couldn't get in touch. One guy I couldn't talk to because he was out of town until the day the assignment was due. And he was an hour drive away. I got home and started typing, getting the story emailed off about nine that night.
What's stressful about your job?
