Five W’s and an H

I recently thought about something I’d been taught a long time ago: when writing a news story, always incorporate the Five W’s – Who, What, When, Where, and Why.  (I’d add an H, but more about that later.)  Take a moment to tune into the essential, deep and true part of yourself, and then ask yourself a few questions:

Who…

…do you want to be?

…can help you get there?

What…

…do you want to know?

…do you need to do to get there?

When…

…by when do you want to achieve this?

…will you get started?

Where…

…will you begin?

…are you going?

Why…

…do you want this?

…will it make you happy?

How…

…can I help you?
