Journalists play word of the day

Fire!

We started playing word of the day at the newspaper. Basically we have a word and try to cram it into the newspaper somewhere. For those unfamiliar, I’m a copy editor at the Daily Titan in and the copy desk edits and proofreads the entire newspaper. We started the game Sunday when our teaser bar had two references to fire, so we made it a fire theme. Oh, so much fun. Here it is:

We continued this word of the day with “ice” tonight. We managed to use it in a headline:

Ice

Too bad us at copy desk did not think of doing this earlier in the semester since we only have three issues left now. Stuff likes this makes me love journalism. Tomorrow’s word is fresh.
