Writing a Valentine's Day Card of Sorts

Saturday, February 14, 2009
We know Cathy (and others) love the PG...but who (and what) else can writers love on this "holiday" today?

How about pens and paper for letting us to get to the basics whenever the ideas start sparking in our minds?

How about the people, events, situations, and other influences which help give rise to our work?

How about the editors and people who see promise and give us a break (or a nice check)?

How about the significant other, friends, family, teachers, readers, etc. who give us encouragement, believe in us, and want to read our next work?

Lest we not forget, the inventors who got us modernized, from typewriters to laptops and beyond? Spell check might still have its glitches (see http://www.good.is/?p=15166&GT1=48001) and sometimes things just don't save correctly, but out of everything, I think my writing happens as much as it does for no other reason than I love the convenience of my computer.

To this, we could easily proclaim our love to the inventors of the Internet and the creators of WOW too, without which some of us would have never "met" and would otherwise lack such valuable insight into the field we choose to pursue.

So, even if you don't have someone to share today with, don't forget to share your love of words with others, don't forget your love of writing, and don't forget to take a second to proclaim your love of things which make your work so interesting, easy to do, etc.! Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi Allison,

Happy Valentines Day! And thank you for the lovely post.

This morning, when I woke up, my hubby had built this big display in the middle of our loft. It had roses, fruit, wildflowers, candles, and pictures of us from the years we've been together (12!). And best of all...he did the dishes and cleaned the loft. ;o)

I also want to share my love to all the interns and contributors of WOW! I've sincerely enjoyed working with you all and give you a big Valentines hug!

And to our readers/writers--you ladies are the most important people to me! Thank you for your continued support.

I hope all of you are spreading the love today.
