Writing is a never ending story that has so many possibilities. Writing allows each of us a chance to put down thoughts, insights and information that we can share or hold to ourselves. However it is used, it is a way to express views that are unique. It is a way to make sense of the world around us.
The article on writing prompts has 10,000 hits on StumbleUpon and earned $28.00 in 7 days. I'm not complaining obviously. The how-to on keeping ice cold still earns at least 400 hits a day. I think it's at 42,000 but haven't checked in a couple of days.
