Prompt 4

Feature articles have always been one of my favorites, they have a personal feeling to them and can make you feel as though you are part of their story.

Out of the articles, I feel like the story about Jorge Garcia took the most effort to report on. The quotes that were placed throughout this article gave so much emotion and the information that was given also added to the depth of reporting that was done. This post really hit hard because the thought of having to leave my family is a horrible one and I personally would not know how to cope with that.

The one that I felt took the least effort was the one about Camila Cabello. This seemed more like a story about why Fifth Harmony broke up to me. I understand that it was about Cabello being from Cuba, but I feel like the information given could easily be found somewhere on the internet.

The subject behind the Carmen Beadie and Rowan Wooldridge story does not interest me very much. The writer was able to pull me in and keep me reading until the end of the story. While reading, a few of my emotions were sparked and I feel like this one of the reasons I was able to stay focused on the story. Even though this is not a topic I am very interested in, it is something that has become big in our society and it is important that this writer highlighted the subject and made a great story about it.

After reading each story I was left with a visual in my head because the details were so strong. That is the one thing that stood out to me in each story and it is something that I can learn from when writing feature stories. The ability to draw the readers in and give visuals through words is amazing and it is something that I wish to be able to do as I progress with my writing.
