John Riddle, a freelance writer and author of 34 books, has written for over 50 magazines and trade journals, including Delaware Today, Travel & Leisure, Home Life, Charisma & Christian Life, and over 100 websites. To say that he is a prolific writer is an understatement. But John knows how difficult it can be to carve out enough time from one's day in order to find a conducive setting where the words can just flow.
To encourage everyone to find the time to write, John initiated the first national day to be set aside for people to pursue their interest in writing. Named simply and appropriately I Love to Write Day, this 10th anniversary of the beginnings of the event marks its recognition throughout the United States and the world.
“My goal for I Love To Write Day is to have people of all ages spend time writing," John says. "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. But I want people to take the time to put their thoughts down on paper. They will be amazed at the results. Writing can be fun, but also challenging. People need to be challenged, and writing is but one of many creative ways to express yourself. I am very excited because I Love To Write Day activities are already being planned all across the United States. For many people, that will be the beginning of their writing career. I Love To Write Day has the potential to launch the career of the next John Grisham, Mary Higgins Clark, Stephen King or Toni Morrison.”
