I'm new here. Hi everyone First off let me just say how much I loath research when it comes to writing (because I feel like rambling). I hate, hate, HATE how having limited knowledge on a topic, such as journalism, will force me to struggle in finishing a novel I really want to write. Okay, rant over. The novel I'm working on is about an aspiring journalist who is offered an internship for a fictional newspaper in NYC. I hate that I can't just go through and write this, because I know nothinggg about being in a newsroom, interning for one, etc. And yes, I know I can research it myself, but that takes forever. The thing I hate most about research is that I can never find the answers I'm looking for, ever. It always gives me a whole lot of information I have no use for. That's where (hopefully) you fellow writers come through for me. I'm wondering if any of you have worked for a newspaper, an online one or for an actual print one. Print will be way more helpful, but I assume those are way less common these days. Anyone who knows ANYTHING about writing for a newspaper, can I please borrow a small amount of your time to ask you questions so I can get a better idea of how it all works? I will be very grateful, and you can have had your good Samaritan deed for the day. Specifically I need to know: - What the inside of a newsroom looks like - How a newsroom functions/a day in the life of a journalist - What to expect as an intern for a newsroom/what an interns responsibilities would consist of. And so on. Kinda desperate for some help here. It's so frustrating when these kinds of things delay the writing process. Thanks in advanced all.
