"I love the concept that they are gathering inspiration for their writing all the time. So many students think writing is about sitting at a computer. This introduces them to the concept that they can be critically thinking, engaging in interesting conversations and paying attention to current events all day long, and then their brainstorming takes on a whole new dimension.
