All In A Day's Work

Due Wednesday, September 19th

At some point in the future, you may have a job that is yet to be 'invented'. Your TASK is to interview someone with an interesting job and write a descriptive article about what they do. (500-600 words)

Use a similar style to John Fitzgerald in his book, 'All in A Day's Work'.

  • Write a 'sizzling start'.
  • Try to use direct quotes from the person you interview.
  • Ban the boring.
  • Try to gather as much interesting information as you can.
  • Use descriptive language.
  • Write an exciting ending.
