After college, I accepted a news reporter position at a large New Jersey newspaper. It took a while, but I learned to be less flowery when reporting on a robbery and tax evasion. As a news reporter, I’d get my story from cops, townspeople, politicians, educators and victims. I wrote in perfect sequence, describing the event and than dotting the rest of the story with “voices” or quotes from the people involved. A reporter must remain unbiased. I admit it was very difficult for me to do so. I am human after all. I’d get so…emotional.
Hey, Fiction Writer. You’re staring at this white screen like it’s a barren wasteland. Yeah, I know it’s intimidating. But does this lonely glacier have the potential for life? Hell, yes!
