This is a very different kind of writing than I am used to! Writing in a journalistic style is basically writing nothing but the facts in a style that people want to read, so I have had to break a lot of habits that I have learned over the years writing in research papers, essays, and even blogs. First off, I learned what AP Style is and how to reverence it. I learned to break up large blocks of text to make them more readable, such as before and after quotations. I also learned how to not editorialize or write in the passive tense.
