Today, October 20th, is National Day of Writing.
For one of my English classes at Millersville, we were asked to write about why we write. Although there are many reasons why I write, here are a few of them below:
Why I Write
Writing slows my
causing it to move
It causes me to see the details, I would otherwise miss.
Writing is my
life into focus.
Thoughts once blurry, now becoming razor sharp.
Writing is an
act of faith
It is trust,
that words will make their way
from head and heart
Happy National Day of writing. May you find space to write today, whether it be a grocery list or the beginnings of a novel. Your words are sacred and give life to others.
