LINK: 12 Great Articles That Inspired Films via The Electric Typewriter

This post (see link below) got me thinking: If one of my articles were turned into a movie, which would it be?

On Facebook, I’ve gotten votes for “Student Gives Birth to Baby in High School Bathroom,” the Sears EDA saga and the articles I’ve written with the Elgin Paranormal Investigators (most recently, this one). Alas, the Drew Peterson case already was made into a Lifetime original movie, and it was based on another reporter’s work.

Any other ideas?

You can find some of my favorite articles in my portfolio and the last few weeks’, here under “Articles.” You also can turn up some oldies if you search Google News for “Emily McFarlan.”

Is anybody in the Elgin, Ill., area planning to Make Kony Famous on April 20? If so, email me at emcfarlan@stmedianetwork.com. I’d be interested in covering it for The Courier-News.
