    The prepwork - Feature 2 of the year

    As the eyes are getting smaller and the hours seems longer, I am sitting here and felt like I wanted to share a bit of the prep work that goes into the features.

    After spending some amazing time with Ciaran on the first feature and with planing, pictures, writing and coordination we spend over a month in the end.

    Now I am sitting here again, with a good cup of tea, some classic rock tunes in the background, Eileen fast a sleep, what better way to spend your Friday evening doing something you love.



    Now what I love about these features is not only do I get go and take some pictures and get some nice spins in some great cars. No I get to know some amazing people, and hear there story, and try to put that into my own words. Now its not just sitting down and starting to type, hehe, I actually have to keep tight track of everything, the pictures, the timelines, where in the feature the pictures go.


    This is the folder from Ciarans feature



    Not to mention that the word files are about 30 pages as well, its mad haha.

    Now I wont torture you guys any longer just wanted to share a little bit of my little world and how much I enjoy writing these up and everything that comes with it.

    Here is a little sneak peak on the next feature.



    It will be done in the next 14 days time I'd say.
    If you can dream it, you can do it.

    Thanks Ciaran,

    :) Have to admit i have completely different approach to this one, its way more structured from the start and know where it needs to go etc, I am really happy the way we did yours I learned a lot from it.

    hehe I might need a hand with the technical write up :D

    Fair play Mike, I think most people on here seriously appreciate the huge amount of background work done by you for these features and the background work by the committee in general.

    Keep it up, it's a great feature to have👍
