Crafts Sites. For a broader category, craft sites are the next best places to find templates. This is broad in a sense that they have listed sites for different types of arts and crafts like beadworks, candle making, and ceramics. Not all these do_it_yourself sites can literally hand out free templates, but will give you enough inspiration and idea to creating one. But it is best to browse on categories like drawing, gifts, paper crafts, patterns, or rubber stamping. Scrapbooking is also under this category.
I'd like to give you an example: I recently wrote an article outlining several ways to get out of a writing slump. As I was writing that article, I came up with about 7 or so ideas for getting your brain out of a creative rut with your articles, including some article template ideas and some writing productivity techniques. I submitted the article, and then thought__ "Each of those ideas for getting out of a writing slump needs to be elaborated on and explained further. I can do a new article for each idea." And so I did__so far I've bounced 4 or 5 articles off of that first article, and I have even more ideas that I've gotten from that first article that I haven't written about yet.
