As I sit here trying to figure out idea for assignment 2, I realize that this is not likely what a real journalist goes through. Real journalists are given assignments and then have to work from there. I am terrible at coming up with ideas and wish this was the case.
I sit here bothering my roommate bugging her for ideas. Still we’re coming up with nothing. Where do journalists come up with these ideas that aren’t news related?
I sit and read a lot of newpapers and most of the things they write about is boring, yet it gets approved and into the paper. I like my odd news. News that’s out there. It’s less boring.
Even still, that kind of news isn’t something you can come up with. Instead, its news that happens. That’s the challenging part.
