Prompt 27: That time you tried to do a job well, even though you thought it was stupid.

Writing for one of the largest entertainment websites I was asked to write about ball girls at a sporting event.

Many sports fans view ball girls as an accessory to the action. I was excited to be accepted as a writer on their website and was hoping it would lead to bigger assignments.

At that time I had already written some in depth pieces for them. This piece was pure fluff designed to get click and nothing else. It was nearly 100 percent about the pictures and any words I added were slightly to complement the pictures of the women.

The piece seemed completely stupid. I did do as well of a job as I could. It was a smash hit. I think the post receive over 100,000 views. To this day, it’s still probably the most I’ve ever received for anything I’ve ever written.
