Looking for an Interesting Idea for Your Next Story?

I love looking through old newspapers both for the historical portrait that they offer as well as their potential for story ideas. Newspapers.com is a new service which offers archives of many different papers from the 1700s to now - imagine the possibilities! It is a fee-based service, but it does offer a 7 day trial period. If you are a history buff or a writer searching for your next great idea, it might be worth a look.
