Sometimes people just get stuck.

You're looking at an empty page, a blank screen, and you have no idea what to write about.

So here’s a few ideas. Forty to be exact. And all you need to do is make them your own.

That’s it. Write down your opinion because your voice is your own, it’s unique, and it will shape the way you see a situation.

Once you write it down, and press publish, you’ll discover that while your specific take is uniquely yours, there are many folks out there that see the world similarly to you.
