Keep On Writing

November 15, 2008 is National "I Love To Write" Day. Started seven years ago, the special day honoring writing and those who enjoy pursuing it grows bigger each year. Several governors have promoted it, schools have sponsored contests encouraging children to write, and newspapers have given it recognition.

Many of the people who post at OurEcho would be good promoters of this day. If you would like to learn more about the group, go to http://www.ilovetowriteday.org

I am definitely one of those people who loves to write. I've tried to discern the reason more than once. I think that it allows me to be creative, lets me touch others in some way on occasion, gives me an opportunity to share my thoughts with the world, and even gives me a sense of accomplishment. But it also satisfies something within me, soothes the soul. I can't imagine a world where I could not write. So let's all write on, not only on this special day but on many others as well.
