Writing an article is an exercise in focus. You have a set word count which means focusing on a relatively small chunk of information. Finding that focus adds maturity and depth, plus it's crucial to writing something an editor will love and pay you for. Discover how the "Why" of the story is the most significant question you need to answer.
