Find a focus and lose the jargon

img_2126.jpgKARE-TV’s Joe Fryer knows a little something about good writing. He’s won three national Edward R. Murrow awards and five regional Emmys. Joe was one of my fellow instructors at this year’s NPPF Airborne TV Seminar in Rochester, N.Y., and Des Moines, Iowa. He says one key to being a good writer is knowing how to focus and plan your stories.

A story is like a movie. It’s got to unfold, to develop, to go somewhere. I like to log a lot of stuff before I start writing. I work hardest on the first line.

I asked him to share some of his most important writing tips.
