In
order
to
do
research
for
a
book
about
reporters,
author
Ted

Bennet
was
spending
a
week
at
The
Daily
Sun.
First,
Ted
met
the

person
who
makes
assignments
and
checks
the
news
stories(1).

The
he
was
introduced
to
a
real
reporter
who
let
him
work

alongside
her.
Ted
noticed
that
there
was
a
lot
that
was
the

same(2)
between
writing
books
and
news
reporting.

The
biggest

part(3)
of
both
writers’
time
is
spent
collecting
facts.

This
means

going
on
interviews,
making
phone
calls,
and
checking

information
at
the
place
with
all
the
books
and
records(4).

Both

jobs
also
require
skill
and
the
ability
to
imagine
and
create

things(5).

However,
most
of
the
time
(6)
the
reporter
is
working

to
meet
a
tight
deadline
and
is
writing
to
fit
a
very
strict
format..


Ted
was
now
knowledgeable
about
or
comfortable
(7)
with
this

sort
of
system,
and
was
glad
his
job
as
a
reporter
was
only
for
a

short
time(8).

When
the
week
was
over,
Ted
returned
thankfully

to
his
book,
full
of
admiration
for
the
reporters
he
had
met.
