FINDING FOLKS

Lady Liberty: Searching for the American dream

2) Play hookie

3) Read the walls

4) Sit the bench

Be a fly on the wall, eavesdrop at beauty parlors, eat lunch alone

Girl in the Window: A feral child finds a family

5) Make freaky friends

Chasing the Light: A photographer documents dying children

6) Get a life

7) Ignore important people

See who’s in their shadows, stakeholders, other ways in

8) Celebrate losers

Dreams don’t always come true, ask about failures, lessons learned

9) Wonder: Who would ever?

10) Hang out at bars (or coffee shops)

Check out different dives, try a martini, always come back to Cheers

GETTING THE GOODS

11) Give everyone your phone number

Keep in touch, don’t dis PR people, ask what else is going on

Davion Only: Orphan goes to church to find a family

12) Be late

Old news is good news, it’s easier after the arrest, whatever happened to

Susie Wheldon: Widow of race car driver goes back to the track

13) Work holidays

Relish rituals, find faith, new traditions, those who can’t celebrate

Valentine Boy: Finding the right words for your first girl

14) Take stories no one else wants

Make people care, write for other sections, find a new way

Guess My Age: Couple falls for biggest game at the fair

15) Look for the bruise on the apple

Ask uncomfortable questions, celebrate conflict, sucks for them

Prince Vinegar: How do you know when it’s time to let go?

CRACKING THE NUTS

16) Lie on the floor, climb on the cabinets

See stories from a new angle, seek new perspectives

In the aftermath of a massacre: A young man finds his voice

17) Listen to the quiet

The sound of silence, what doesn’t happen, questions not answered

18) Go along for the ride

Invite yourself over, ask for photo albums, vacuum the scene

The Long Fall of Phoebe Jonchuck: Before her dad dropped her off the bridge

19) Take small bites

See a sliver of the big picture, shadows in the news, I can’t imagine

Mom Cheryl Brown of Trayvon Martin’s neighborhood: “The Retreat”

20) Don’t be afraid of yourself

Share your life, open up, tell stories, take risks, you are a character

Don’t be a snob. Don’t think you’ve heard them all before.

Try on new lenses and frames.

And remember, sometimes the best stories are in your own backyard.
