Don’t you wonder how many young people have read a great book and were so inspired that they wanted to become a Faulkner, Emerson or Dickinson but were never encouraged to write? Encouragement is a powerful tool for all of us, especially for a developing mind. Celebrate National Encourage a Young Writer Day by motivating all the little ones around you to start writing today. All children should be encouraged to write their dreams, passions or imaginative thoughts. Writing can become the pallet for a lifetime of joy, confidence and creativity.
