· Political, Religious, and Social Commentary
Can you recall that major migration from Dust Bowl to California in which hundreds of thousands of people had to leave their homeland during the great depression and move to California and other western states?

Writing Ideas are everywhere. All you need to do is keep your eyes open to get influenced and inspired by your surroundings.
