‘Productive Procrastination’ Helps Tim Graham Nail Feature Stories

Great read about our pal Tim Graham:

Instead of writing — and yes, he typically writes his stories in one sitting, after his wife and kids have gone to sleep — Graham will make three more phone calls or head to the library to find a pertinent book he’s yet to read.

Not on the type of deadlines that beat reporters confront, Graham has the luxury to research and develop deep features this way.

His job comes with its own set of pressures.

“I have to hit home runs every time,” Graham said.
