Phase One: Brainstorming Topic Ideas

I've been thinking about a new topic for the next story and I keep coming to a dead end. I have no ideas. I would like to do a piece that relates to my blog topic, which is cheap eats and places to see in D.C. I hope that I will come across an interesting topic idea over the break.

So after break I have come up with two ideas that could possibly work for this up coming assignment.

1.) texting and college students
A no texting while driving ban may get passed in the state of Maryland and I would like to get students perspectives on the new legislation.

2.) eating on campus versus outside of campus. I can determine whether students prefer campus foods oppose to fast foods off of campus and whether it is cheaper to eat on campus or not.

I like the idea exploring how students text. I would be interested in reading the finished product. Good luck!

I think you should go with the second idea because it follows your beat. It would be really interesting to find out how the story turns out.

Wow, I didnt know that they already implented the "No texting while driving" rule, because I'm still doing it. But, I think you should do the second idea.

I like your second idea better because it fits with your beat. I look forward to reading your story.
