Reporting Plan On the left, write down every question you can think of, including readers’ questions, as well as any you brainstormed with your writers group. Then on the right, write down every source you want answers from. You’ll sometimes find that you identify sources and/or questions you hadn’t thought of. This is an efficient way to keep track of what you know and what you need to know, as well as guaranteeing that you touch all bases and produce a story that is fair, accurate and complete.
