Linda Shenton Matchett I love this question. There are a number of worlds I'd like to visit, but World War II England would be my first stop (Foyle's War).

I rarely suffer with writer's block. That may be because I outline my stories, so I already know where I'm going when I sit down to write. On the occasions I have had writer's block, I've tried to push through by putting anything on the page, even if I know it's terrible and may end up being trashed later. I've also gone to a different project or different type of writing (fiction to blog posts or social media) to loosen up the creative juices. Sometimes I've had to give myself permission to walk away and do something for myself.(less)

Traveling Tuesday: Iowa in the 1800s 
  One of twelve midwestern states, Iowa is the only state whose east and west borders are formed almost entirely by rivers (the Mississippi to the east, and the Missouri and Big Sioux to the west).
