Story starter

Here’s a worksheet to help you think through a “story” idea from beginning to end. Actually use this thing and you won’t make the mistake of forgetting about audience, reaching out to stakeholders (and across those fault lines you learned about in cross-cultural journalism), knowing when what you have isn’t an article at all, etc.

Check this thing out. Make copies of it. Do the work it involves and it will save you time and frustration.
