If you are a journalist, you must be wondering on how to hone your writing skills. This recurring question has occupied my mind for some time now.
Lately, I have been spending much of my time searching for writing tools over the Net. Poynter Institute is the best place to start. Yesterday evening, I came across a moving story titled "Elegy for the king and queen" by Thomas French published on St Petersburg Times.
It dwells on two animals: a chimp and a tiger. More importantly, its about thier life and death. In Nepal, there are very few animal lovers. It is so because even humans are living in the gravest of the conditions.
But, this piece was a cliffhanger reading, it gripped me equally to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this 17 page long story. Thank you Tom for enlightening me.
I strongly recommend those who love writing to go through this piece and try applying some tips followed by Tom. Happy reading!
