    Hi Tori – I saw you over at Firework People. Even though I’ve not had to deal with writer’s block, I’m always interested in ways to keep the creativity flowing, so (of course!) I was drawn to this title! You had me adding topics to my ‘editorial calendar’ before I even got through your first section! What I thought was interesting was that we have quite an age difference, but even the school ideas sparked topics that could be adjusted to where I am in life. Thanks for the great ideas!
