Love Letter

images[9]

Writer Unboxed, one of my favorite blogs, inspired me this morning with Julia Munroe Martin’s post, Writing….Will You Be My Valentine?

Check it out for several fun and touching love letters to writing. Here’s mine:

Dear Writing,

You’re my soul mate. We’ve been together as long as I can remember. You whisper enticing stories and ideas to me that magically, and sometimes painfully (love hurts) appear on the page.

We’ve had our differences of opinion, a word here or there, a stubborn impasse, but those moments are short-lived. I can’t imagine my existence without you, and I know you wouldn’t exist without my fingertips holding a pen or tapping on a keyboard. We are one.

Forever yours,

Linda

What would your love letter to writing say?

  1. Love your love letter to writing! I’m making that a prompt on the Team Haag page… and then I’ll do one of my own! Your last lines ring true for me, too: “I know you wouldn’t exist without my fingertips holding a pen or tapping on a keyboard. We are one.”

  2. “You found me later in life, reminding me I had been writing with joy and ease for a long time unaware my words and stories could touch the hearts of others. I am grateful not to have overlooked this blessing.”
