Thinking of events to write about? Aside from everyday life:

Walk On Moon

Challenger Explodes

World Trade Center Attacked

Afghanistan War

Your Everyday Life

Think it's boring? Not at all. Put a slight spin on it and your life - or someone's you know - can turn in to the next great book! 

A Little Imagination

Look for stories everywhere - newspapers, as you're driving to work/the store, TV news reports, even the billboards you see. Let your imagination soar!
