On Chapter 10 of Writing Feature Stories

The parts of Chapter 10 that I find most usefull in my writing are the sections on simplicity and intrinsic interest. Clutter is one of my biggest problems in the feature writing format.  I try to put too much detail on things that, in the end, are unimportant and bog the reader down.  Editing these parts out or “cutting the fat” will take a lot more practice for me.

Intrinsic interest.  I’m so glad that features are not always written on deadline.  I say this because finding intrinsically interesting material is hard for me at my low level of practice and experience.  I suppose I see interesting things every day but typically have no idea how to approach writing about them in a creative way.  I hope this class will, and I think it has already, change that.
