Blog Action Day this year focused on poverty. Over 12,000 bloggers wrote a post about the subject. So, how is this a writing exercise?

Most new writers are afraid of someone taking their ideas. If you’ve been writing any time at all, you know that no two writers approach any subject the same way. If you’ve ever been part of a group where you’ve done writing to prompts, you know how widely the results vary.

Blog Action Day was a huge writing prompt experience. If you read through the Blog Action Day entries, you will find amazing differences in the subjects and the causes promoted.

Here are some samples of what one group of business people wrote. We are all in different businesses and all look at poverty, life, and most other things differently.

Let’s celebrate our differences.

Please take a moment and check out what my friends shared…
