I read all kinds of books, magazines, and newspapers ecause story ideas come from everywhere. Today a small part of a story in the Oregonian talked about how the Environmental Liberation Front (subject of my next YA thriller) uses email dead drops to communicate. Rather than emailing to each other, they will create a free email account. One user will leave a message for another user by typing it up and then filing it in drafts. After the second person reads it, they delete it.
