do write

Truth be told I was never much of a student. But I acquired a love a writing as I journeyed and journal-ed  my way through a personal tragedy. That journey eventually led me to this blog. Mostly I do my writing for personal pleasure and this blog is a doorway to a vast community of people, very nice people. 


I'd like to think between my life's experience and my enthusiastic albeit basic abilities with the written word; that I might now and again actually do what good ole Mr. Franklin says......





Linking up with Bits of Bee today.

  1. That is a great quote.
    I went to school to be a nurse...no writing whatsoever.
    I started writing because it was therapy.
    Now it's an addiction ;)
    The community that followed is a beautiful thing ;)

  3. Love the quote.
    I have a pencil, that I keep on my desk, that reads "Write to be Heard". I love it!
    And blogging is a great way to be heard and to journal.

  7. I've always wanted to write in a journal, but no matter many times I've tried I've always been too lazy to keep up with it!

  10. I love that quote. You are right. Sometimes the things that drive us to write are ... tragic. But - then we find that writing is good for us :)
