What do newspapers and magazine articles have in common?
Paper mache? C’mon, be serious.
That’s it! You could use them for your writing.
Lets say you run across a magazine article about an organization that gives away free furniture.
Why would someone give away free furniture?
Maybe the owner use to be homeless.
How did that happen?
They did something bad that caused them to loose their job and family.
Now that sounds like something interesting to write about!

Oo, sounds like a fun idea. I’ll have to try it sometime.
Thanks! Hope you have fun with it. It was definitely a new experience for me.
The Snape gif is AWESOME! It got me all cracked up 😛 I’ll have to try this idea sometime soon. It sounds great – so many story ideas just sitting around on my magazine shelf! I’ve also tagged you to do a book tag:
Lol! Snape’s grumpy face sold it, in my opinion. 🙂
Anyway, I hope you have fun with those magazine of yours and thanks for the tag. 😀
