The Ability To Analyze An Incident Is The Basis For A Column, News Item And Short Story

As you aspire to be a writer you should view life itself as a writer would. All experiences, both your own and other people’s whether happy, sad, frustrating or tragic, should be seen and examined as potential material for you to use. This is very important not only for writers but also for students who plan to be novelists or short story writers. It is valuable to note down these experiences, good and bad and all the facets of human emotions for possible future use.

One journalist told me that he could guarantee to come up with at least three ideas

for his newspaper’s gossip column merely by walking down the town’s main street. He had trained himself, he said, to make a mental note of what the untrained observer would miss.

In order to make the most use of what is happening around you, you should try to use all your senses all the time. Nothing should escape your keen observation and scrutiny. You should become an enquiring person. Ask yourself questions about things are being done, the background to events, the circumstances that surround them and the reaction of both those involved and those merely observing. There are ideas for stories, articles and


news items all around, if only you can recognize them.

What is important is the ability to analyze an incident in order to use it as the basis for an article, news item or short story.
