If you give yourself enough time to prepare in journalism then you shouldn’t have too much to worry about!!! If you don’t  prepare your questions or research what your going to be interviewing or writing about then I could imagine the amount of stress that you would be under if you didn’t prepare. It also leaves a bad impression if your running late or unprepared. Focus is very important as well. You need to focus on a few points or you won’t get the whole story out like it should be told, especially if your limited on how much you can write.

Complement, don’t repeat. You can be creative with all of your tools if you use different ones and don’t use them all to say the same thing. Working on a team definitely helps to accomplish more. One person could be focused on the interview and writing everything down while someone else takes video or pictures.

Everyone has a story to tell. If you include everyone you are sure to find something good to write about. Its good to start  with public figures but don’t forget about artists, shop keepers, retired academics, etc. You can even get out on the street and ask people what concerns them the most.You can ask them what annoys them, and what they would like to see changed.
