To evoke a high school football cheer that has risen from the farthest nether regions of my memory—yes, still smelling of Teen Spirit deodorant and rainbow Skittles—“Let’s Get Fired Up!” (Clap, clap, clap-clap, clap.) “Let’s Get Fired UP!”
Understand, I’m regressing decades for the sake of a greater cause: THE NATIONAL DAY ON WRITING! Sponsored by the NCTE. October 20, 2009, mark your calendars, folks.
You can hear about the importance of writing in my life and others at the official National Day on Writing website: http://www.ncte.org/dayonwriting/testimonials/sarahmccoy.
I think it’s about time writing got its own holiday. That deserves a cheer, maybe even a cartwheel… I have my orthopedic husband on standby for that feat.
Yours truly, Sarah
