I might get the hang out news writing yet

I'm well into my final year of school, and even now I'm learning new things. News writing was a daunting course for me, but I think I'm finally getting the hang of it; I've done fairly well on the assignments so far, and that's comforting. I was really nervous about the sopt news assignment, but I went to the event, completed my interviews, and reported my information--all pretty painless. Truthfully, it was fun. I've never really thought of journalism as a career choice for me, but it's slowly becoming an option. Not to say I'm a very good journalist; I'm not terrible at it, so I'm considering maybe trying my hand at writing an article for the Setonian...maybe. I'm not even sure they would except my work, but, hey, it's fun to imagine. I have a lot of work to do before the semester is up. I'm hoping to improve my writing by significant degrees. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. :-)

Katie, I hope you will consider writing for The Setonian. You can certainly practice AP Style by joinging the copy-editing staff, and maybe there you'll get a good sense of what the articles look like before the editors whip them into shape.

Anyway, it's very early in the semester, so just focus on how much you've already learned.

Kate, you are a talented writer, and you always have A LOT TO SAY! (A very good thing). You have a keen perception of details and facts, which is something I wish I could get a little better at. Another person that amazes me with his view on writing is Chris Ulicne. I think the way that both of you catch details is remarkable. Check him out, if you haven't already at
