AP Guide to News Writing, Ch 8

Quotes aren't actually as much trouble for me as other aspects of news writing. At least not as far as incorporating them into my story appropriately. I can usually decide a decent place to put my chosen quotes, I have a good idea of when to paraphrase, and I feel that I can usually make it flow fairly well. The only real problem I have is I always have a lack of good quotes because I am not an aggressive interviewer and I have a hard time coming up with good questions to ask. But, once again, that is something that must be remedied with practice.
