Writing: 30 Days of Gratitude, Day 17

Day 17: I am grateful for writing.

Words surprise us! Writing is my lifelong love and something I’ve returned to after unexpectedly deciding to retire early. Writing keeps me busy, active, engaged, and happy. The activity of writing is exceptionally useful for cognitive repair, development and even celebration. Writing keeps us connected. For all the joys it has brought me–and there have been many–I shall be eternally grateful. Writing is fun!

“When I am writing, my problems become invisible and I am the same person I always was. All is well. I am as I should be.” — Roger Ebert, American film critic and author

Questions for Consideration

What does your writing life look like today?

If you had more time, would you like to write more often?

What kinds of things have you written?

What kinds of things will you write?

Is there any writer whose work you especially enjoy?

If you were in search of a writing course, what would you hope to study or learn?
