In progress: Quotations and Invisible Observer.


Hard News Story
Write so the the reader can stop reading at any time and still come away with the whole story.  There is no need to put a "conclusion" on a news story.  Each individual reader will "end" the story whenever he or she gets bored. The editor should be able to chop off paragraphs from the bottom of the story at any time.

News Feature
A news feature tells a story at a slightly more relaxed pace than a hard news story. The content of the news feature is usually human interest rather than breaking news.
