The thing about news writing is that it’s not the same as creative or academic writing. The challenge is not to get your audience to read the entire article – the chances are most will stop reading after the first few paragraphs (if they ever get past the headline). For news writing your goal is to give the reader as much information as possible in the shortest space of time.

Think about it this way; Your walking to the office in the morning and you witness something exciting or different happen. 30 seconds later you’re at your desk and telling your colleagues what you’ve just seen What are you telling them? You’re not setting the scene, describing the air quality or the weather – you’re getting to the point.
