National Day on Writing – October 20th

First established on October 20, 2009 by the National Council of Teachers of English, the National Day on Writing asks Americans to consider the role of writing in everyday life.  We text, we Tweet, we Facebook, we tumblr, we blog, we e-mail and, yes, some of us even write old-fashioned letters.  Writing is something we do everyday even though we don’t think about it.  But how much do we really write to connect to other people?

Today is all about that.  It’s about writing to connect, to influence, to change in some small way another person.  There are all kinds of hashtags and events associated with this holiday that I will go ahead and include links here.  How do you plan on celebrating the day?  Please leave your comments below.  Thank you!
