Writing From The Headlines

by Marjorie J ~ . Filed under: How To Improve Your Writing.

It has been said that truth is stranger than fiction. As you look at some of the titles of the headlines in our everyday notification about what is going on in the world around us in the news it can be mind stretching.  These headlines by themselves can give you a place to start to write or you can take all or part of the events and weave them into your stories or characters actions and see what you can create as a story line. 

It is easier sometimes to build on bits and pieces than to start from scratch with a blank paper or page, so give it a try and see if this might be a way to get your writing juices started.
