Write A Story As A News Report
This could be a TV report with a panel of pundits yelling at each other, a reporter on the street, the voice of a producer in your anchor’s ear…
Or, this could be a traditional newspaper report.
Remember to tell a story, though! Then tell us all about it in the comments.

I wrote a teeny tiny news article type story about necromancy and missing body parts. I think it was funny? I hope it was funny! On to week four!
My first attempt at writing a story- and I managed it. I had no idea where the story was going and it was left like an inconclusive news about a secret discovery. I wonder what is the ideal length of these story a day stories?
Welcome and well done!
I think the ideal length for these is probably somewhere around the 750 word length, or up to 1500, becaus it’s hard to be that concise on a first draft (for me anyway!)
Thank you Julie for the tip on the word count !:)
Complete. Today I actually built on a premise I wrote for an earlier prompt involving artificial intelligence, where a guy was trying to figure out what happened to a large portion of the human population many generations ago. For my story, I wrote an article from an old newspaper clipping he discovered as part of his research. This is the first time I’ve leveraged one of the prompts to continue a bigger story idea, I might try to do it with some of the other prompts going forward. I’m excited! Thanks for the prompt.
Fun! That sounds cool. I just read a novel that incorporated that kind of thing into the storytelling.
Here is my story. I had goosebumps, even as I wrote it. What a day this will be!
Thank you very much Julie Duffy
Done with today’s story! I loved this – super fun.
You have to watch out for the murdering trees
Well I’m intrigued
Done with today’s. Not quite happy with it, and I did break from the news report format at the end, but it’s done.
