In the chapters we read, Filak brings up an interesting point about the length of sentences and the effect the length of the sentences has on your writing.  The short sentences can provide the reader with easy access to the  information with little effort spent from the audience.  The longer sentences can bring in more of a flow and connection to the other parts of your story.  Not only is the length of the sentences important as well as the information the reader provides should be clear and concise.

Another interesting point Filak brought up was the basis of media writing.  Media writing is much more about facts and delivering the truth than staying stuck in your own opinions.  Within media writing there are six “Killer Be’s” that are important fro each writer to pay attention to.  Be right, be tight, be active, be clear, be smooth, and be quick.  These are important for writers to utilize in order to have successful writing.
