Writing complex news articles can be overwhelming. To tell the cleanest and most efficient story possible it's key to have a good process from start to finish. I'm constantly revising and building my own process for reporting and writing.
Currently, I use Scrivener to organize and draft information into potential stories. I use google sheets to manage my public records requests. I use otter.io to transcribe and manage my interviews and quotes. I use the Hemingway and ProWritingAid editors, warily.
Below are some examples from my "Evergreen beat" scrivener doc and my public records tracking doc to give you a sense of how I work.
