What would you say is your biggest inspiration when you are searching for ideas for your articles?
For me it is often reading through back copies and recent issues of my target magazine that will start my creativity popping. By reading the magazines I can get a real feel for the ethos of the magazine - what they are trying to achieve by what they publish, their readership, and the editors likes and dislikes as to the material they want in their publication.
At other times it might be something someone says or does, or something I've read elsewhere or seen on the TV or Internet that might set me off. For me - inspiration is everywhere. I just have to capture the idea and work into something viable for publication.
