Hi Liana, I'm sorry to hear about your writer's block. Maybe check out some of the writing prompts here and just give yourself permission to write whatever comes to you. Remember, you can always go back and fix what you've written later. It doesn't have to be perfect the first time out. --Eve

Too, I was in awe of the maturity and grace of those who submitted work. My thanks to all who participated. It gave me joy to read your words. --Eve

Tiffany, I was at the Launch, too, and heard Terese read. Her poetry was fantastic. It really struck a note for me because I remember my years at university taking sciences and I often felt exactly as she described in her poem. --Eve

I love the link you mention between writing and music. I think there's also a link between writing and visual art or photography. So many forms of creativity. --Eve
