Today I celebrate Prompt #500 on The Write Spot Blog.
That’s a lot of prompts!
I didn’t know what would happen when I started this blog September 24, 2003. That seems so long ago, and yet it’s only 17 years. A life-time for some, a blip for others.
Since that first blog post, my daughter married, both my sons married, two granddaughters were born, we renovated our yard, bought tons of groceries, did umpteen loads of laundry, and so much happened locally, state-wide, nationally, and internationally.
And I learned to Zoom.
There are 1,252 posts on The Write Spot Blog: Places to submit your writing, book reviews, quotes, and guest bloggers sharing their thoughts about writing. Hopefully some of the posts have been inspirational to help you and your writing.
Since 2003, five Write Spot anthologies have been published.
I’ve given talks about freewrites, blogging, and how to write about traumatic events at workshops, college classes, and writing communities.
I continue to read about writing and attend writing workshops, furthering my education about writing.
Yep, I am passionate about writing.
Today, I celebrate you.
I’m raising my glass in a toast to you.
I hope you are writing and keep writing.
If you want to write, but haven’t started yet, maybe you will find inspiration in one of these Write Spot posts.
Here are some prompts that might inspire your writing.
What happened for you these past seventeen years?
What will you celebrate today?
