As a woman, I am inspired by Alice Paul, the head of the suffragist movement that led women to winning their right to vote in the 1920's. As a person I am inspired by anyone who is willing to stand up and help another person that is in desperate need of it.(less)

I am either flowing freely with thought for days or I'm lost in thought and not writing, only because I don't feel like the thought has quite formed yet. I think of it less as a block and more as a time for reflection until the idea becomes worthy of putting on paper.(less)
