Leah Finnegan is the features editor of The Outline.\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT LED YOU TO START WORKING IN DIGITAL\/MEDIA PUBLISHING?\r\n\r\nWhile in grad school for journalism in 2009, I got an internship at the Huffington Post. I eventually got a full-time job there and left journalism school to take it.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?\r\n\r\nI\u2019m up at 7.30 or 8 a.m. to scroll the news on my phone with one eye open. I\u2019m at my desk by 8.30 to start working on whatever I have to do that day. We have a morning meeting at 10 a.m. to talk about what everyone is working on. From there every day is a unique combination of Slacks, emails, meetings, and edits.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DOES YOUR WORK SETUP LOOK LIKE? (YOUR APPS, PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS, ETC.)\r\n\r\nI use a MacBook Air and I have a monitor setup. I\u2019m anti-app and computer-based productivity tools. The best productivity tool for me is a pair of earplugs.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DO YOU DO TO GET INSPIRED?\r\n\r\nGo for a walk, take a shower, and go to the gym. I think of my best ideas away from the computer.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT\u2019S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF WRITING OR QUOTE?\r\n\r\n\u201cProduct Recommendation\u201d by Kelly Conaboy.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT IS THE MOST INTERESTING\/INNOVATIVE THING YOU HAVE SEEN ON ANOTHER OUTLET OTHER THAN YOUR OWN?\r\n\r\nNo idea!\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT IS THE PROBLEM THAT YOU'RE PASSIONATELY TACKLING AT THE MOMENT?\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s an age-old one: How do I get people to read interesting stories?\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR AMBITIOUS DIGITAL PUBLISHING AND MEDIA PROFESSIONALS WHO ARE JUST STARTING OUT?\r\n\r\nNever say no to an opportunity.
