M: You're going to wear out the computer's keyboard.
W: Oh. Hi.
M: Do you have any idea what time it is?
W: About 10:00 or 10:30?
M: It's nearly midnight.
W: Really? I didn't know it was so late.
M: Don't you have an early class to teach tomorrow morning?
W: Yes, at 7:00. My commuter class—the students who go to work right after their lesson.
M: Then you ought to go to bed. What are you writing anyway?
W: An article I hope I can sell.
M: Oh, another of your newspaper pieces. What's this one about?
W: Do you remember that trip I took last month?
M: The one up to the Amazon?
W: Well, that's what I'm writing about.
The new highway and the changes it's making in the Amazon valley.
M: It should be interesting.
W: It is. I guess that's why I forgot all about the time.
M: How many articles have you sold now?
W: About a dozen so far.
M: What kind of newspapers buy them?
W: The papers that carry a lot of foreign news.
They usually appear in the big Sunday editions where they need a lot of background stories to help fill up the space between the ads.
M: Is there any future in it?
W: I hope so. There's a chance I may sell this article to a news service.
M: Then your story would be published in several papers, wouldn't it?
W: That's the idea. And it might even be able to do other stories on a regular basis.
M: That would be great.
