An Editor’s Journey
Moving on from my clean sweep, I settled in to finally do some writing. Digging through my bag, I quickly found my USB drive, a Roller Ball USB Flash Drive-1G from Delk Products, Nashville, Tenn. Some might find the large ball at the end of the drive clunky or silly, but I like adornments on my USBs, like lanyards or big plastic balls, because it makes them much harder to lose. And since there was no guarantee my room would have Wi-Fi, losing the USB would essentially be a death sentence, since it was the only way to get my work files to my laptop. I reminded myself to thank Jessica M. Simmons, sales and marketing territory manager for Delk Products, for the free drive, and thought of something she told me in a prior interview. “These drives have a lot of customization on them, so you can have your company’s logo [on them],” she said. “It’s a great way to have your company look smart [and] tech-savvy.”
I thought it was pretty good advice, much like everything else I had recalled over the day’s trip. Certainly they were facts I would try and remember if I’m ever writing a story on, say, travel promotions.
