Sometimes I get my inspiration for my writing from this newspaper, Metro. It’s available for free from Mondays to Fridays at almost every underground tube stations in London. I am not sure about outside of London. Almost all commuters read the Metro, including me. The Metro is a good read, and it consists of things/events that are going on in London, including gossips, celebrities and author interviews, good books to read, places to dine and have fun, entertainment news, latest films and reviews, and sports. It might seem like any other ordinary newspaper to most people, but for me, it always gives me ideas for the kind of books that I might want to write about. The Rush-Hour Crush section in particular is where I mostly look at to get my inspiration. It is also my favourite section. The Rush-Hour Crush is a section where commuters write (via Metro) to their rush-hour-on-the-tube or on-the-bus crush. Sometimes it’s funny to read about how two strangers meet, especially during the hectic and chaotic rush hour in the mornings on the underground.
