It's off to a great weekend of re-writing and creating stories to meet the Monday deadline. I enjoyed a great trip the Arizona Republic, where I had the opportunity to view newsroom desks that now serve as inspiration of the upcoming mess in my hotel room this weekend, when I begin some major writing activities.
The Arizona Republic staff are phenominal, and the facitility is great. Thank you for such a great tour and for the opportunity to listen in and pick the brains of excellent news reporters and editors.
I especially enjoyed the "five stages of a story" presentation by Michael Roberts. The presentation was extremely helpful for me, as a "budding" journalism instructor. I really enjoyed his practical tactics, and clear instruction.
I wasn't too excited about beginning a Friday with grammar and AP stylebook lessons- but Steve is great at making something that can be very dull, fun and instructive.
Today was another great day, and I look forward to some R&R, and another great week!
