Writing that...

structure and style
It "exposes" all details of a topic
News report
How to use it
In the past three years, singer/actress Miley Cyrus underwent a monumental transformation for many reasons. First, Miley emerged early in the year with a radically new, short haircut. Furthermore, she debuted this new image, tongue sticking out "provocatively" (TMZ), with the release of her latest album. This move exposes a markedly suggestive look at modern teen trends. This transformation and exploration included, but was not limited to, a practice in the "aggressive dance style of twerking" (TMZ). Miley has faced a great deal of scrutiny from the public, despite record-high sales of her album and continued adoration from many young fans.

Blinded by the possibility of glory and victory, I felt my calf muscles contract as I began to propel myself toward the other side of the bus stop. I could feel the wind tug at my hair, pulling my pink scrunchie further down to its ends as my oversized, awkward head flew wildly with momentum. Knots in my stomach as I raced the tennis ball to the tree, or third base, I heard the screech of bus tires and the deep, booming voice of my new bus driver announcing its arrival. Sharply distracted, I whipped around, still unable to put a halt to my cheetah like speed, and with a start I suddenly stopped as my little 5-year old body plummeted into the tree. Everything went black as the slight smell of blood and pang of ache filled my senses.

Step outside of your frustration and look at the details of your situation- write a 1 paragraph news report of what happened as a 3rd party observer. Omit any opinion- your perspective should simply expose the details of what happened.
