Sample idea 1: Your first pay cheque.

If you haven't had any articles published yet, here's a useful piece of advice for when you do: spend your first payment on your family and friends. Take them on holiday, buy them new bikes, or just buy them lunch.

Now that they can see there's money to be made from writing articles they'll take your career more seriously. If you need quiet time for writing, you’ll get it. If you need someone to run around and do some research, or collect things, or post things, they'll be delighted to help. After all, you're a real writer now - and in many people’s eyes that makes you a celebrity!

Sample idea 2: Why and What are the benefits?

Whenever you come across something interesting, ask yourself the ollowing two questions: Why? and What are the benefits? This often leads to a new angle on the subject, which you can use as the basis for your article.

[EXAMPLES]
• Scientists are trying to clone humans. Why? What are the benefits?

• Scientists want to record our dreams. Why? What are the benefits?

• North Korea wants to enter the space race. Why? What are the benefits?
There are hundreds of other examples all around you right now, in books, newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, online, and so on. These two questions will take you straight to the heart of the matter. Or the truth of it - and the truth might not be what everyone thinks it is. Your readers might not have considered the real reasons and implications . . . until they read your article.
