Authors: misspellings in TV subtitles can lead to story ideas

#Communicardo10 – the zizziology wayBanner - how subtitle misspellings on TV can lead to story ideas by Zizzi Bonah

In September of 2015, Ross King was being interviewed on ITV1’s This Morning programme about his second book of fiction: Breaking Hollywood. His first book being: Taking Hollywood – he joked his third would be called Baking Hollywood – Killed by a Croissant; however the TV subtitles spelt out: Killed by a Question.

Tip: Misspelling of subtitles can lead to writing ideas – one of the upcoming chapters in my new book is named after this TV misspelling.

Have you turned a blunder into a writing opportunity?
