    I became a member Sept. 29 2017 and it is Oct. 29 2017. I must say I have learned a lot my first 30 days, I would be lying if I said I didn't. I have found interest in subjects and topics that I never even gave a thought or express any concern for.
    Some of my thoughts and views on things have changed a little bit for the good and not so good, with the help of reading a variety of threads and seeing others responses, and also the responses that I received on my threads.
    I am in the process of writing a book, and a I can say is that I needed a site like this to open my mind to see how different people think from one another on a topic. It for sure sparked my creative thinking, and its helping me with my book.
    Thanks USMB I plan on staying a member for awhile and continue to be involved with this forum!

    People thinking here may be giving undue credit. In may cases posts are made in subjects or directed to posters that have discussed the topic many times. More of a reflex.

    You can get a few extra pages if you start the first page with once upon a time and a big illustration. Always go for The End somewhere close to the end.

    Then I hope you can draw, because illustrators charge a ton. Don't pay more than what you get for a thousand words.

    Try ink blots with a few open ended questions.
