Use the news…

Whether you’re doing Saturday morning freewriting, working on an essay or a novel, remember to use the news for inspiration. On the radio this morning, I heard a report on how the Tea Party is sabotaging the Republican party’s election chances.

Does your writing need the drama of friction between people, or a splinter group dividing a family, a business, or even a country?

Could Lindsey Lohan’s public reports of arrests and drug use violations add that special time-peg so critical in that compelling essay you’re writing.

Inspiration and ideas are everywhere. I hope your pen is full of them this morning.
