Thanks to the folks at SheWrites, I found out that today is the National Day on Writing. As they said, it’s for real — thanks to work by the National Council of English teachers, this was passed by the U.S. Senate.
SheWrites posed a challenge: say why you write in 140 characters or less. Here’s my response:
Writing connects me to a deeper place within myself and opens me to the larger community of universal, shared experiences.
Why do YOU write? Please post it as a comment below, and if you’re on Twitter post it using the hashtag #whyiwrite
