Required abilities, qualities and problems

Radio / TV news and newspapers have to write articles in a limited number of characters due to their format, so "summary short", "write technical terms in an easy-to-understand manner", "write the main points first, and have detailed explanations later". Reporters are required to have the ability to compose sentences such as "come". It is also necessary to be familiar with the knowledge of various fields to realize them. In addition, in order to keep articles short and easy to understand, "crest-type" expressions are often used in sentences, and it is required that the individuality of the author is not expressed in the sentence expressions as much as possible.

When a newspaper reporter writes a novel, there are many people who cannot write a very easy-to-read sentence and end up with a bad sentence. The ability to write long sentences and the ability to be required are different from those of writers who are required to have persuasive expressions. There are many writers from newspaper reporters, but all of them make their debut after studying their own expressions as writers, while building on the writing skills cultivated in their life as reporters.
