Othello/Tabloid - Day Whatever

I am finding the art of mastering Microsoft Publisher has been easier than trying to write tabloid style.  I have several copies of the red-tops in front of me, yet other than alliterative hooks in titles, I find it really difficult to write in that way.  I am kinda sounding like a strangulated Daily Mail journalist.  It is more difficult to get into the lexical bank than one would imagine.

Wading through 'celeb-feed' should be a cake walk for me.  I must admit there is more to this tabloid hack stuff than meets the eye :-(

EDIT:::Hoping to write more tomorrow - I have comprised a tabloid word bank.

wordbank 001

Lots of plosive b-words - busty, boobs, bikini, birds, bullied etc.
