Day 23 of the #AtoZChallenge  is W for Writers. And Wow! I am loving the Wonderful Writers I’ve “met” through this challenge. I love how we all evolve as writers – because it is a lifelong learning process. My only regret was not being around to visit and comment every day, as I really enjoy doing that. My internet time is currently limited. Ah, all in good time – when I am back home on May 2. I am looking forward to catching up!

Wikipedia defines “Writer” as “A writer is a person who uses written words to communicate ideas. Writers produce various forms of literary artand creative writing such as novelsshort storiespoetryplays, news articles, screenplays, or essays. Skilled writers are able to use language to express ideas and their work contributes significantly to the cultural content of a society

Today, I’ve got a fun poster that lists tips for writers.

25 ways to be a happy writer

I came across Chuck’s blog a couple of years ago when I signed up for the NaNoWriMo 2011 Challenge and really loved his writing style. He’s a published author (who didn’t even know how to build a website a few years ago) and his blog keeps me in splits. So let me share this funny, yet oh-so-true list of tips with you. Here you go! (I know there’s some profanity in there…but I think it is pretty well-placed and gets the point across.)
