Writing a News Article
When you are writing a news story, you should decide what the focus is. Then you should begin with the basic facts of the story - the who, what, where, when, why and how. Make sure the first sentence gives a clear statement of the most important facts. Afterward, include supporting details in order of importance. Keep your writing simple and use short paragraphs, one for each main point.
headlines are usually writeen in the form of a statement with a subject and predicate.
News stories usually begin with the most important or up-to-date information. This material, known as the lead, occurs in the first one or two paragraphs of the article. The rest of the story explains the lead. It doesn't matter in what order the events actually happened. Newspaper reporters rearrange the events in the order of importance-the most important facts from first and minor facts come last.
There are two reasons why news articles are written this way. The first is that articles are often cut to fit the space on a newspaper page. Since the lease important information is at the end of the article, it is easy for the editors to shorten the article without deleting relevant details. Second, newspaper readers often skim articles, so providing the most important information in the lead makes thier task easier.
