Lesson 6

Part 3. News Writing and Reporting Practice

The Writing Process

Section A

Before reading the text, answer the questions:

1. How do you usually write your stories? Do you make any necessary preparations for it or just write immediately?

2. Can you name different methods of writing?


Find the following words and expressions in the text. Try to guess their meaning from the context. After that check with the dictionary:

To outline a story

A rough draft


To get / make short shrift

To conceive (the idea)

Focal point

“Kiss off”

To ramble

Smooth transition


To trigger (a question)


Now read the text and explain the main points of the FORK method in 5-6 sentences:

Writers work in many different ways. Some writers pace around the newsroom before they write. Others outline their stories or write a rough draft first. And many writers just stare at their computer waiting for a muse to inspire them to create the perfect lead. They insist that they can’t write the rest of the story until they find their lead. Deadline approaches, and the rest of the story gets short shrift because the writer is almost out of time. But the writing process doesn’t have to be that painful: you can use several techniques to develop a writing process that works for you.

Don Fry, a writing coach, has a five-step writing system: conceive the idea, report, organize (plan and order), draft and revise. But no single writing process will work for everyone. Good writers develop their own methods.
