Focus it! / 9 ноября 2007 г.
The stories that newspaper writers usually take most pride in are long and often come in a series. The news writer is a territorial animal with a primitive instinct to use up as much newsprint as possible. But the stories that survive are usually short, precisely limited and clearly focused. Most good stories say one thing. They tell not of a battle, but of a soldier, they talk not about governance, but a deal; they discuss not a socioeconomic group, but reveal a person and a life.
