Writing & Motivational TV

-- Quote of the Day --

For journalism, I was somewhat non-traditional. When I told my father that I was interested in doing journalism, he recommended that I do not major in journalism, he said that anything that I could learn in a journalism major I would learn in the first few weeks on the job – but that I should major in something that would broaden me as a human being, that would give me a better understanding of human nature and history. So I took his advice and majored in History and Literature. Today, newspapers are more picky about who they hire and they want to see a major in journalism and to see that you have done an internship. …I teach two classes per semester and I have my students do a lot of reading – you cannot become a really good writer unless you are a good reader. When you read good literature you take in the language almost by osmosis, you get a feel for the language; you have a feel for connotation and the use of words. You cannot really teach somebody that, they have get that from the exposure to literature.
