Edits on Story #4

Make headlines snappy

DON’T RAISE MORE QUESTIONS THAN YOU ANSWER — PROVIDE SPECIFIC DETAIL!!!

Tell the reader who you’re hearing from – and why (POKEMON, FOREX)

Great links throughout — DON’T SHOW CODE!

Use links to provide background – not as a shortcut for explaining basic info–Lots of opportunities for BACKGROUND links — save links when you’re researching!!!!

Avoid logistical minutiae!!!

Great quotes!! Don’t repeat info…

**

Next week: We will meet for class on Tuesday as scheduled – in lieu of class on Thursday, you’re required to attend a session of the ACT Conference – a live tweet will verify your attendance.
