Kids' first experiences with writing shape their attitudes and beliefs about their abilities for years to come. It's important that those first experiences aren't negative -- even tortuous -- because of that blank page.

The End Blank Page Terror Forever ebook is designed to improve writing skills by getting students of any age past that “blank page” quickly and easily for any writing assignment. The ebook contains 24 pre-writing tools and a detailed guide explaining when and how to use each one.
Often students simply don’t know where to begin a writing assignment and find themselves paralyzed in front of a blank screen or page. This erodes confidence and makes students second-guess themselves and their ideas. The End Blank Page Terror Forever ebook serves to bypass that problem completely so that children will be able to practice and improve writing skills with confidence.
With the pre-writing tools or graphic organizers in this ebook, students simply fill in the boxes or shapes with a few words or phrases, as directed in the guide. Within minutes, they create a working template of content for a writing project. As Lily latridis, founder of Fortuigence and creator of the ebook states, “The truth is, kids like graphic organizers. Filling in circles, squares, triangles or bubbles is fun and far less intimidating than facing a blank page.” She continues, “Kids' first experiences with formal writing shape their attitudes and beliefs about their abilities for years to come. It's important that those first experiences aren't negative -- even tortuous -- because of that blank page.”
The ebook includes graphic organizers for a variety of writing activities, including brainstorming, organizing content, note taking, problem solving, and book reviews. The accompanying guide not only tells parents when and how to use each one, but gives a glossary of definitions and directions on how to adjust the graphic organizer for use with different age groups.
