My journey as a news writer

I have never cared for the news.  I have actually always quite disliked the news.  The news always bored me so I never watched broadcast news. I never read newspapers either because they bored me as well and the ink got on my hands.

Needless to say, I had never written any piece of news before this class.  I didn’t think I would like it and I wasn’t excited at all about the prospect of taking a class related to news in any form.  But as it turns out, my love for writing trumped my distaste for news.  I really enjoyed writing articles each class.

I also learned news isn’t so bad.  It isn’t always upsetting and includes a narration of something sad.  It can be a fun article about a baseball game or an uplifting piece about a free clinic that gives people medical care when they can’t afford it.  News isn’t all bad.

And that has been my journey as a news writer.
