The Severed Head Story Cupboard
News stories are always a great place to find story ideas. Take this one where they identify a severed head after twenty four years. There are so many angles you can take with this story. Why didn't her parents file a missing person report instead of the aunt? Or what if a prostitute decided to follow the story and solve the mystery? Of course you can stick to the facts and write a cold case mystery but what fun to just take a few basics and find your own story. And I'm wondering who found that head on the golf course? Wouldn't it be fun to chase down his story?
