Writers Support Writers

4 Jul

003Let’s start with the quote and then build off of it.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Independence? That’s middle class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth.”  George Bernard Sha

Good morning, or good afternoon, and thank you for returning once again to the writer’s site that wants nothing more than to help you on your writing journey.

Happy 4th of July to you all, and I hope you have some special plans in store for today.  Me, I think I’ll write. LOL

As for the quote….I love it.  We are all dependent on one another…true words those!

I have written often that writing is a lonely profession, but it really doesn’t have to be.  On the writer’s site HubPages alone there are over 100,000 writers and I’d venture to guess there are millions in the world. With the internet we now have access to so many writers, that the concept of aloneness seems a bit strange.

I have made no secret of the fact that the only reason I am still on HubPages is because of the friends I have made there. Similarly, the only reason I have this blog is to help my writing friends.

Have you reached out and helped another writer today? Who knows whether a kind word from you might be just what another writer needs today?  Give it a try and support each other.

TIP OF THE DAY

Do one thing to improve your writing each week.  That is your new goal.  It may be to use metaphors more often. It may be to submit articles to magazines.  Maybe it will be to write 1000 words per day for a week.  Do something that will make you a better writer, and start today.

SITE OF THE DAY

Daily Writing Tips can be found here….just in case my tips aren’t enough for you in one day. J

CONTEST OF THE DAY

The Earth Vision Writing Contest can be found here.  Short stories with the environment as the theme. I believe the deadline is November 1st so you have lots of time.

PROMPT OF THE DAY

fourth of july

I didn’t have my own picture of fireworks so I borrowed this one from the internet.

MORE ON FRIDAY

I’m making this short today because I still have a ton of work for customers and I want to at least barbecue this afternoon.  I hope you all have a fantabulous 4th of July, and if you live in another country then have a great one anyway.
