News writing spot news

So the new dorm opens tomorrow (actually today) and I'm going to do my spot news story on that. I'm usually pretty ok with new experiences, but I'm not going for my own curiousity; I'm going for an assignement, so that makes the task somewhat daunting. I'm not sure exactly how I want to handle things. My goal is to take some notes on the ceremony, but I also want to talk to some students who live there. The ultimate would be to talk to a contractor of the buiding, but I don't hold much hope out for that. Even if I had the opportunity, I think I would probably chicken out. Like I said before, journalism/news writing is a whole new world to me and it's going to take some getting used to. Luckily I know some other students from the class who are going, so I won't be alone. Let's just hope I get enough decent material for the story. Maybe journalism will turn out to be my calling in life. :-)

So what did you think of your experience?

It was actually a lot of fun. I felt very professional going up to people with my little notebook and asking them questions. I even boosted my ego a touch when my interviewees asked what the questions were for. "Oh, I'm writing an article," just like a real journalist!
