I Want to Encourage Others to Start Writing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26 People

    Chain Reaction

    At the suggestion of another user, the intention here is to start a chain reaction of stories. Most of what I have to say that is interesting (and, no doubt, a lot that is boring as hell) appears in my prior posts on EP. I encourage better writers than I to take up the torch.

    Special Note From My Daughter

    At a very young age, I have always told my daughter how important it is to express yourself.   I told her you should always write down how you feel and most importantly tell the people you love how you feel about them. She finally took me up on that.  Can't remember exactly...
