"The Controversial OPERA of Faster Than Light Neutrinos from CERN" is a nice light introduction.
I had already written about one tiny facet of this story, just a bit of the math, in my Decoded Science article "Lightning Fast Math for Neutrinos versus the Speed of Light".
As always, I also promote my article in DeHaan Services ("Introduction to Faster Than Light Neutrinos").
The first writing tip is to write about what you research anyway: it's likely that other people also want to know.
The second writing tip is to build your list of references as you go; it may save time in the future.
