- Choose a compelling headline for your article.
- Develop the lead statement for your article. The lead statement is a sentence which should grab the interest and attention of your reader and cover the topic or major theme of your article.
- Use your research on the trends and drivers of change during this workshop, to build the "facts" underpinning your scenario. Your scenario should provide a chronology of how you get to this point in the future. Include the basics of what happened, where and when it took place, who is involved and why it's important for your scenario storyline.
