What I learned-second deadline

This time around was a bit harder for me. I thought I had a good story to begin with but a week before deadline I lost motivation and found another story to cover. Little did I know, changing my story would cause me more trouble because I had less time to get with my sources and go to events to take pictures. I find myself editorializing too much so i’m working on shifting gears mentally to be more specific and detail oriented when writing. This class is pushing me out of my comfort zone when writing and although it may frustrate me, I know it’s definitely helping. Ms. Sheppard told us at the Orlando Sentinel they do five stories in a day and that put into perspective for me that even when I think i’m working hard, I can try a little harder and prepare myself for the real journalism business. Thanks Ms. Sheppard.
