NR&W 1:

Plan to start working in and around my area first. Turned out there is a Punjabi cobbler in a nearby market, which is strange because most of the mochis in Islamabad are pathans. I talked to people in my class to find out if they think it is as peculiar as I think it is. They agreed. So I went ahead with the task without permission from the  editor. Talked to the man for about 15 minutes and gained enough material for a decent story.

I then approached the editor, who immediately agreed that the story was worth working on. Still got advised to read a story published on Pakistan Ink last year about a man who searches for metal in Pindi. The only problem with mine is, it might go against the ‘unite, not divide’ rule that we have. But the editor says that with a little caution it would be okay.
