Brainstorming is what it’s all about this weekend. Map the mind, connect the dots, do the Vulcan Mind Meld… er… okay, maybe not that.
For this weekend’s writing assignment, let’s play a little game. Pick an article, any article. It could be from your newspaper, or a favorite magazine. You can even choose one online like this one here at Reader’s Digest.com Got your article? Good. Now, read over the article and make a list of five sidebars you could write to go with it. For instance, if I were to make a list of sidebars for the Reader’s Digest article, I might include:
A list of travel-tip newsletters
Tips for saving when traveling during peak times
A guide for traveling light to save baggage charges
Money-saving dining tips for travelers
3 Budget Resort Vacations
If you’re working on this weekend’s assignment and suddenly find yourself inspired to write a feature article– BONUS!
The Show and Tell Challenge
Step right up and take the B&B Show and Tell Challenge! Here’s how: simply give the headline for the article you chose (or a link, if it’s online) and your list of possible sidebars, post it on your blog, then come back and leave a link to your post in the comments. It’s that simple!
