Journalism is a fun class, and really easy if you know what to do. Their are a few ways to make journalism easy and much more fun. The first thing you should do is make friends. If you have people to talk to and hang out with, you enjoy journalism much more at the cost of your productivity. If you sit alone with no friends like I used to, you get really good articles out very quickly. My first article is probably twice as long as my latest. There really isn’t any solution to this. You’re either completely alone, which is fine for some people, or getting every single article out on Fridays.

The next one is pretty obvious. That is to write about something you like. If you write something that you enjoy writing about, you’ll have more fun and likely have longer articles. That’s why fiction has to be 500 instead of 400 words, because most people have an idea about what to write about if they’re doing fiction. There is a lot of fiction for two reasons, either people want to express themselves, or more likely, don’t know what else to write about.

Another thing I occasionally like to write about is this school, mainly its issues and how to go through it. My first article was about this school, and how to be cool. It was exaggerated and involved fidget spinners instead of Supreme. It was a bit late and outdated, well that section at least. The rest was obvious and the key traits to being cool. The story was fun and by far my best article as of now. Back to Hale. Their are not enough articles related to our school on this website. If you have something to write about involving this school, just do it.

And the best thing you can do to make good use of journalism is to do your homework. If you finish your article early, or know you won’t have time to finish assignments outside of school, do it in this class. You have all the time in the world in journalism, only one 400 word article a week is necessary. The best part is that this class is during 6th period, so all academic classes have been completed. All your homework has been assigned and you have a full night of assignments written down in your binder reminder. You may not finish it all. But if you can focus, you probably will.

Overall, journalism is a good class, and really easy to pass and take advantage of. These are just a few generic things to help you improve in journalism.
