Is it a thing? An action? Something we can hold in our hands? When does writing begin? With the Second Grade Girl who is about to illustrate and print on “What did you do during Summer Vacation?”

We are The Writer’s Chat Room and we have been around at least since NetScape. 

We Write. 

When I was coming up with the topic for chat I began to think about the word, “Writing.”

Is it a thing? An action? Something we can hold in our hands? When does writing begin? With the Second Grade Girl who is about to illustrate and print on “What did you do during Summer Vacation?”

Is writing the first crayon marks on the bedroom wall, all leggy and uneven? Or maybe it is the sketch in the dirt beside the carport?

I looked it up on Wikipedia and will copy just the opening of the article for you here. Follow the link to see the whole thing, then come to the chat room on Sunday and share your ideas on writing.

Hi, this is my first time trying my hand at witting a Dog recipe cookbook for dog food and dog treats and I have researched a lot of helpful information on-line and thought about sharing it in my book and would also include the website where I found the information but I am wondering if that is allowed? I don’t want to get in trouble for putting copying the information and putting it in my cookbook, If I list the website wither on the page or on a reference page is that ok or am I better off not using that information in my cookbook? All the recipes I have created myself.
