I Love To Write Day

Writing is one of the most important activities that a person can engage in during their day. Yes, we know that might sound like a controversial statement, but it’s really not. Writing is an essential communication skill that engages a person’s entire brain, helps them think through their problems, and allows them to convey their innermost thoughts.

This medium can also help a person develop not only their communication skills but also their social skills. And it’s for these reasons why we think it’s important for everyone to write every day.

This is especially true when November 15th comes around every year. That’s because this day is known as I Love To Write Day—a day that shows writing is not only good for you but is also a lot of fun.

The History Of I Love To Write Day

This holiday was created by a Delaware author named John Riddle. He wanted to create a holiday that encouraged everyone to take some time out of their day to write. It isn’t important what these people write; it was just important that they took the time to write something.

He believed that writing was a necessary and important way for people to engage their creative brains. He also believed that while not everyone is cut out to be a professional author, some people will discover that they are natural writers and that this holiday will launch their careers.

Observing I Love To Write Day

The best way for everyone to observe this holiday is by spending it writing. It doesn’t matter what a person writes, as long as they write. It can be a poem, short story, journal entry, or novel. It just doesn’t matter.

All that matters is that people take the time to WRITE SOMETHING. And after they finish writing whatever they are writing, they should use the hashtag #ILoveToWriteDay to spread the word about this holiday.
