This week we were asked to write our first piece in a journalistic style. I learnt a valuable lesson – talk to people for longer than three minutes!
I found this exercise challenging because I had limited material to work with. My two interviewees were a little shy so it was hard to get information from them. In turn, I ended up with not a lot of useable information from them.
In reality – the story I wrote really wasn’t news and had this been the real world I would have needed to move and find another topic. This was a good exercise though – I’m feeling a little more prepared for assessment two.
