Chapter 1 – What Is A Journalist?
A great many people who want to be writers say that they want to have a career in journalism. They may envision themselves going to exotic locales to cover stories or winning a Pulitzer prize. While these things do happen to journalists, it takes a long time to make your bones before you are sent on any interesting assignments.
I became a journalist purely by accident. Unlike others who seek out journalism as a career, I wanted to be a writer. I envisioned myself writing books of fiction and entertaining the masses. My parents talked me into going to college and getting a degree in journalism. They told me that it was a good idea to have something to fall back on, in case I couldn’t make a living writing fiction for a living. Five years and 100 rejections later, I realized they were right. Fortunately, my degree in journalism helped me support myself so that I didn’t have to go back home after I got out of school.
I had no idea what a journalist did until I got my first job at a local paper when I was still in school. I was hired as a stringer and had to report on meetings. It was boring, but it paid for extras. Someone said that I was a journalist and I realized that I was actually working in a field for which I was studying.
A journalist is someone who reports on timely events. Timing is everything to a journalist. Whether you write for a periodical or a newspaper, you need to make sure that your articles are timely. Your purpose is to keep the public as up to date as possible when it comes to news and events that may affect them. This is the basic concept of being a journalist.
Since I became a journalist, I have made many mistakes. I’ve broken the rules a few times but learned lessons from each rule that I broke. It has taken me six years since I first started getting paid for my writing as a journalist, but in that time, I have become a good journalist. While my assignments are not exotic and I have yet to win that Pulitzer prize, I make a decent living and do something that I really enjoy.
If you are thinking about becoming a journalist, you have to remember that the following rules apply:
1. Impartiality. You should report on all sides of a story, not just take one side, even if it appears that one side is right or wrong. A good journalist gets all sides of the story, prints it and then lets the ready decide, based upon the article. A good journalist does not make up the reader’s mind for them.
2. Timeliness. Your stories have to be timely. You do not have a compelling story about something that happened 20 years ago unless it can relate to what is happening now. Journalism is in the now – the immediate present. You have to relate even historic pieces to what is happening right now.Other Details
