5. Empty nest: oh, the dreaded day when the last of your kids actually leave home to face the world on their own. After 18 plus years and a house full of memories, it’s suddenly quiet and empty…and foreign. Again, it’s like the phrase of “What do I want to be when I grow up” but this time you can call it “What will I do when my kids are all grown up”. Think about that for a moment. Consider the adventure that you can embark upon, whether it’s on your own or with your significant other. There are many opportunities…and usually more money available to spend. Check the internet to see what’s available. There has been an explosion of travel, business, recreation, causes, and even communities developed for people who find themselves to be empty-nesters. And many of them are writing about it, whether it’s through a blog, a book, or even letters. You will find many examples and many stories of Baby Boomers writing about the things that you are now going to be able to do…so join them and write!
2. Teen Years: wouldnt it be wonderful to return to that time in our lives where we actually knew everything…well, in our minds anyways. But what a time of struggle for self-identity and desire for adulthood. We all responded to these years differently and, hopefully, came through them pretty much unscathed and independent. Thinking back to all the physiological changes, the peer pressure, the rebellious attitudes, and even the defiance of our families and society, we will find many things to write about and share with today’s teens. Just because technology has changed so much doesnt mean that many of these same insecurities and life learnings are not still as relevant today as they were back in the “dark ages”. If you have a passion for today’s teens or even want to write for or about them, think back to your years and you will find plenty of material…good and bad.
