Did you know that November 15 is
I Love to Write Day? Author John Riddle is the creator of this little known celebration, which is now recognized by the governors of nine states. That’s right, if you are a resident of Delaware, New Jersey, Kentucky, Maryland, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Texas, or Florida you will be pleased to know that this day has been officially noted in your state.
Mr. Riddle came up with the idea in 2002, thinking that it would be a good way to celebrate the art of writing, and to hold the “world’s largest party for writers.”
He goes on further to say, "My goal for I Love to Write Day is simple; people of all ages are encouraged to write something. A poem, a letter, an essay, start a novel, finish a novel...the possibilities are endless!" Visit the I Love to Write Day website at www.ilovetowriteday.org.
I love Mr. Riddle's idea! Even though I am a writer, it sparks an extra measure of enthusiasm and thankfulness for what I am called to do. How will you celebrate this special day? Writing for NaNoWriMo, blog posts, an article, a journal, or flash fiction? I invite you to share your writing adventures, big or small, with us.
Happy Writing, and Happy I Love to Write Day!
