Dry wipe notebooks for - errrm - yeah, well - for whom actually?
Letterform dry erase #notebooks  are notebooks with 30 pages of dry erase technology, to be used with dry erase pens.  Say you need to take notes or you like scribbling in a notebook as a way of #brainstorming .  Not everything on paper needs to be kept, especially now that we have a cazillion #notetaking  apps on all our devices. Therefore, rather than killing trees and creating more clutter, some may benefit from re-usable doodling.  When you’re done #writing , erase and enjoy the clean slate.  This product is certainly nothing for the mainstream market, but some of you may want to check out this kickstarter campaign...

Everest avalanche leads to cancellation of Joby Ogwyn's #wingsuitflying  project
No "boom - boom - boom" with the "jump of all jumps"
The first live on TV  #wingsuit  jump from the peak of Everest, planned for by Discovery Channel, has been cancelled due to the latest events at the world's tallest mountain. But don't worry. We'll get there.

#Writing  assignments should offer students some kind of value, but they are probably not as easily designed as standard assignments, plus they are more difficult to write and grade. #acwri

#Writing  as act in between solitude and the social.
Young writers besotted by the image of a swaggering, confident Twain should take heart: Underneath that white suit lurked an author as insecure and neurotic as those who idolize him.

"Welcome to stay where you'd like to be" is the maxime of this guy who produces #compost  and emplyos chicken to do so - THIS is how chicken should be kept, not in cages!
Picking up on the interest you showed in #chickens , +Marc Schnau and +Anne Lewis, I highly recommend the full video you'll find on geofflawton.com to which this is a teaser - the site is well worth the free registration... #permaculture

Eight strategies to get #writing :
1) Lose the "I'm just not a writer" synrome
2) Don't wait for perfect words
3) Talk to yourself - out loud
4) Move words, sentences, paragraphs around like pieces of a puzzle
5) Crystallize your point into a few words
6) Rid yourself of the internet
7) Don't get stuck by letting yourself think that you have to start at the beginning
8) Set deadlines for yourself

And a ninth worth adding: writing is re-writing...
Hate writing? You're not alone. Here are top tips from writing professionals on how to break through the paralysis and start to put words on the page.

Too late for #caturday  and just in time for #caturdayeveryday . But what about the speculations the cat craze might end some day? Not til hell freezes over, if you ask me!
They’ve long been thought of as passive, even indolent, pets, but lately it seems felines have been calling the shots. Are we all in danger of becoming cat people?

I had no objections to this - until I reached the last two sentences, which to me come as surprise: "After all, real researchers don’t write a word unless they have something to contribute. We should teach our students to do the same." Isn't that a strange conclusion? Shouldn't we teach students the exact opposite, which is: to write, as much as possible, for as many different purposes and audiences as possible? Isn't the postponement of #writing  up to the point where students think they have to "say" or "contribute" something often the reason for writer's block and affective hurdles that prevent students from succeeding? #acwri
