Words On The Page

StoryADay May is well underway. Hundreds of people are writing. Many of them are sharing their stories.

I’ve read tons of stories in the past three days, some stunningly good, some OK and one of two just … raw, shall we say?

But all of them we’re complete. And all of them were words on the page that their writers can look at and reflect on and learn from.

Over and over again, people have said some flavor of “I’m so glad I wrote today”, “it’s not perfect but I feel so good for having done it” or simple “ha-Haaaaaa!”

It reminds me of why I do this to myself. There is nothing like the feeling of writing. There is little that makes me as happy. There is nothing really that I’m anywhere nearly as fulfilled by doing.

So I’ll be writing a story again tomorrow. How about you?
