First, let me say that I found this to be a very "creative" idea.
I realize nobody appointed me editor and I'm not trying to belittle anyone. I would never do that, but that being said, I would want someone to let me know if I missed anything after I finished proof-reading any of my work. So, if you're interested, I found the following things, let's just say, questionable. I don't believe there needs to be a comma between the words "questions" and "during", also, under the "C:" paragraph, the first "your" before "nurturing", (which is also misspelled as nururing),is unnecessary. Under the "T:" paragraph, creative is misspelled as "creativie". Under the "V:" paragraph, creative is misspelled as "creativve" and again as "creativie". The question mark after the word "work" should be a comma and the capital "o" in "or" should be changed to a lower case, creating a two part, one idea sentence. Under the "I:" paragraph,
favorite is misspelled as "favorit". Also, in the same paragraph, I'm almost positive there should be a second comma used after the word "because". Last, in the second "T:" paragraph, one sentence reads "for you choose an idea", it should read, for you to choose an idea.
I really hope this helps and not offends you.
