Attention Newspeople

After spending nearly two years in breaking news, I'm trying to get back into the mindset of developing story ideas (i.e. non-breaking news... or news that isn't broken. Whatever.)

I need a refresher. And so, I appeal to you, friends and countrymen, what ways do you develop story ideas? And how do you know when you have a really good one?

...when you get really excited about the story idea that you have, almost like when you finish it and it's published you'll feel like it's Christmas. That's how I know I've got a really good one.

No good stories I've ever written or produced, were done without that sort of child-like passion. (Not bias, btw.)

But passion.

Now, if I could only bottle that stuff up and sprinkle it on some staffers at my college paper...
