SETTING OFF TO FIND A STORY!

Every story starts with an idea, and this chapter will explain where these ideas can originate. They can be inspired by newspapers, talking to sources, meeting influential people, or keeping an eye on a broad range of new developments. This chapter will also focus on social network sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, and the significant role they play in monitoring news breaks and leads. Investigative journalism is all about pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, exploring the unknown and taking calculated risks. Above all, one must read, read and read, and keep your eyes and ears open!
