     Brainstorm Maps

       The single thing that journalists needs the most is a good story, thus they must always be on the lookout for them in the wider world. From the tiniest sliver of information, they will already have several angles and narrative structures ready to be acted upon. Certainly it is a mind-set that comes with experience and practice, so I began making 15-minute notes of any potential stories or simply topics of personal interest that came to mind. They are fairly simple diagrams, but they also allow me to practice putting down potential narratives quickly.
