Possible PS Topic

Postby Intrigue » Sun Jul 08, 2012 8:02 pm

Hello all, just joined here.

Thinking through what I might write about for my PS. One idea is writing about my experiences as a skydiver. I have been doing it for years. Before I go much farther, do you think this might be a decent topic?

Yes.

But almost every subject is acceptable..all depends on how you write/frame it.

That makes sense. I'm still framing this, but I'm thinking of focusing on the mental aspects of the sport. There is significant risk involved and it requires a good deal of focus just to stay safe, much less be a good skydiver.
