Clear and compelling messaging makes the difference when communicating who you are and what you offer. Words on paper, on a website, or on the vows you speak on your wedding day represent your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Your message comes alive and delivers with intent.

It is more than just words on paper and images on the internet. It is personal. I hope you enjoy the blog posts and learn more about the written word and how it can best speak for you and your business.

Fun Fact # 15: It’s Author’s Day.

Nov 1, 2018

We came across this little-known fact that today, November 1st is Author’s Day. Being in the content and writing space, we’d like to share with you what we found out about this fun holiday.

According to the website www.timeanddate.com

“Writing is hard and writing a short story or a book is even harder. So, thank your favorite authors for writing your favorite books and help budding writers and authors around you in any way you can so that they can achieve their dreams.

American Authors

It is not very clear how or where this unofficial holiday originated. Some records suggest that the seeds for creating a holiday celebrating authors were sown in 1928, by Nellie Verne Burt McPherson, the president of the Bement, Illinois Women’s Club. In 1949, the United States Department of Commerce recognized National Author’s Day as a holiday that commemorates American authors.

How to Celebrate?

  • Re-read your favorite authors’ work or pick up a new book written by that author.
  • Want your loved one to see why you love a particular author? Why not gift them a book penned by them?

Did You Know…

…that according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Agatha Christie is the world’s bestselling author? Her books have been translated in over 44 languages and have sold over 4 billion copies worldwide.”

Pick up a book tonight and get comfortable with a blanket and beverage of your choice. Let your mind visualize the scenery, the imagery and the look and sounds of the main characters. Whether you enjoy spy  thrillers or romance novels, give your brain a work out and celebrate the authors you love most.

Happy reading.

PS it is also Men Make Dinner Day!
