Public relations is mostly unglamorous. It’s scouring through miles of spreadsheets to finish reports, it’s reading uninspired comments about your brand on blogs, it’s a mastery of screencaps — and most of all: it’s meeting deadline after deadline.

There’s no such thing as working with the news cycle. You’re just either in it or out of it.
