Description: Story Building demystifies the narrative style of writing by playfully undoing the knots of journalistic storytelling. It provides personalized guidance and practical advice on how to muster the passion and skills to gather compelling details needed to tell an engaging journalistic story on deadline. To write like a pro, you must think and report like a pro. In this book, accomplished journalists-from the smallest newspapers to the New York Times-take readers on their beats and, with a friendly voice, explain their actions and their choices.
