**************To grow as a writer, I need to practice the art. Finding time to devote to my passion can be a challenge. I work at a dental office, workout regularly at a health and wellness facility, do laundry, pay bills, coddle my husband (not really) and have an assortment of other demands on me.
It's obvious that I don't have a great deal of time to devote to my favorite pastime. My practice writing consists of posts to my own blog and comments to my fellow bloggers' blog posts. Commenting on my cyber-friends' writings is doubly beneficial because it supports and encourages their passion for writing while it simultaneously allows me to exercise my writing muscles as I address the variety of topics which they've chosen to promote.
"To give is to get" is of course the case in every area of our lives. Specifically, today I'm moved to write that I appreciate all of you who take the time to read my words and those of you who offer your words on your own blogs and also comment here.
