I did some research to verify what had been said, summarized it, and added pointers to several of the nearby maple syrup festivals in Ontario. For good measure, I also added a link to Amazon.ca for a Kindle collection of maple syrup recipes.
One Writing Tip made from Maple Syrup
But here's one new writing tip, instead: once inspired, check the facts from another source before committing them to your own article.
In this case, the TV interview mentioned the weather conditions that challenged the upcoming festival. I knew that the information was accurate.
But I found a reputable online source anyway, double-checked the optimum conditions for harvesting maple sap, and linked back to that URL.
One reason is to ensure your own accuracy. Even if you quote some people directly, it's good to fact-check what they claimed, and note any errors they made.
The other part is to cite your authoritative sources, so your readers will know why they should trust your article.
Thanks for reading my article about several Ontario maple syrup fsestivals near Toronto in 2015.
