I have been writing for the school newspaper for almost two semesters now and recently realized that I have never actually read it. How humiliating. I recently upgraded from Contributing Writer to Staff Writer, and it was time for this embarrassment to be over. I am proud to say that today I read the Brown Daily Herald in its entirety.
I was shocked to find out that the other writers are actually really really good. Better than me, even. There are a lot of things that they are doing that I am not doing but could be doing and should be doing. I am thrilled to start imitating these other more talented writers, and I will hopefully improve my own reporting skills as a result.
