Jumpstart the Muse

May 20, 2012

I am constantly running into news articles on the web that sound like fodder for a story. The stories might be historical fiction, alternate history or just an interesting background to a romance or mystery. Here’s a case in point.

“Now experts have suggested the domestication of dogs, and the benefit it gave to their masters, could have played a key rule in the demise of the Neanderthals and supremacy of humans.”

I find several of these news articles each week and just don’t have the time to follow them up with a story. But I do add the basic concepts to a StoryNotes.txt file for future reference.

What news articles have caught your imagination lately?
