Richard’s Answer

This is a great career for anyone. Here are some ideas:
1. Create a blog and see how writing daily makes you feel.
2. Use your Instagram account and write daily—again, to test your real interest in writing.
3. Do some research and identify local publications that accept articles, and take the risk and submit something.
4. Read some memoirs/biographies of successful journalists and better understand the profession.
5. Watch related films that capture the magic of journalism—for example, All the President's Men or Spotlight.
6. Don't forget the convenience of YOUTUBE

Sukhminder’s Answer

Anna, as far as I got your query, I am not in this field, however, you are making a great choice but journalism is a serious business these days if one really wants to do it, especially in places where main media stream is no longer regarded as media. I think you should follow some nice reporters in your regional space and national level. With intro of social media Journalism has taken so many size and shapes that ones needs to really think while making any decision.

Sukhminder recommends the following next steps:

Look around existing journalists around your place
analyze the professional requirements
decide on what you want to do out of those fields
dig deeper into the profession you decide on
