FISHing for good stories

This morning we had a breakfast for bloggers in our Community Media Lab. I had a good conversation with Chris Lambert, who writes Comics: Don't Get Me Started. He suggested his alternative to the give Ws: Who, What, Where, When, Why.

His acronym is FISH:
F for facts.
I for insight.
S for speculation.
H for history.

This is another good way to make sure you're getting in everything you need to write a good story to keep your readers interested. I hope our writers can keep FISHing in mind while they're reporting so they can present their stories in an engaging manner.
