From Third Grade to State Troopers
What do you write about on NewsBreak?
This is a question I’m sometimes asked by writers who are curious about the site and wonder if they might enjoy writing there.
Well, I’ve taken to breaking down my NewsBreak writing by week so other writers can see the kinds of topics that are accepted on the site and that (in my view, anyway) do well.
This is by no means all inclusive — other topics also perform well. I tend to write newsy pieces, so this site makes sense for me.
In any case, here’s my breakdown of the past week on the platform:
