It’s hard to imagine that everything that happens has already happened before, every story has already been told , although, I suppose it is true for journalism.
Good stories are made through good practices: preparation, grammar, spelling and reviewing. While covering different types of events, it is important to keep in mind the other people doing so as well. If many people are getting the story – like in a press conference – then the journalist must ensure they have the correct quotes and verbiage.
Finding deep stories seems daunting, and certainly not as simple as “open your mind’s eye.” However, deep stories can be found anywhere when you ask “why?” This can be asked to any person, place, idea or thing, especially people. Everyone’s story is different.
