Everyday Writing

Leave a comment

To celebrate National Day on Writing yesterday (10.20.10), I compiled my texts, emails, blog revisions, Foursquare Check-ins, Facebook posts, Tweets, and handwritten notes to create this Wordle.  This is a celebration of the ways that writing is woven into the fabric of my everyday personal and professional life and an acknowledgment of the importance of digital writing and new new media in constructing myself as a writer.
