This day was created by writer John Riddle in 2002, so it is 20 years old today!
His aim was "to have people of all ages spend time writing.
They can write a poem, a love letter, a greeting card, an essay, a short story, start a novel, finish a novel…the possibilities are endless. (…) People need to be challenged, and writing is but one of many creative ways to express yourself. (…) For many people, that (I Love to Write Day) will be the beginning of their writing career."
So get out your journal or open a word document on your computer and write. It doesn't have to be anything big; you could start with writing about what you did on the weekend or even what you'd like to do on the weekend.
