Getting All the Elements

BY: AMANDA SOTO

So far, so good! Our story is coming together really smoothly. We met Jack Horgan for an interview today at the Central Hotel in the city center. The library bar could not have been a more perfect place to film an interview about education because there was a bookcase with a seat near a window. Megan did a really good job getting the video element just right. 

It took us a while to find the 4a bus back to our hotel, but we got to explore the city a little more and spotted some trendy stores we’re going to take the girls to tomorrow.

I came back and logged all the quotes I am going to be using for the story. Right now I am just trying to figure out exactly how to put it together so it will be easy for people to understand the context.

Megan and I have been brainstorming how to make all that we have learned into a text and video story. I think we might be ahead of all the other teams, but it still seems as though we have a lot to do.

I am getting an onset case of writer’s block. I need to find a good nook to write in so the words can start flowing…

    Don’t ever let writer’s block slow you down. Just start writing. Even if the words aren’t perfect, get something down on paper. Then go back and polish.

    Remember that writing is but one step in the process. You have to focus your idea, research and report the story and organize your information first. Only then do you write and rewrite. And rewrite some more!
