The Stretched Blog Visits

You may have noticed that this week’s Ice Breaker was moved to Thursday.  Today, I have the honor of guest posting for my friend Dan Erickson.  Dan lives in the state of Washington, and we had the blessing of meeting each other this summer when he traveled to the east coast with his daughter to visit family and to visit NYC.  In my post titled Connecting Through Writing, I share about the connection I’ve found through my writing.  Here’s a glimpse of my post:

Connecting Through Writing

I never thought I would have a passion for writing.

It’s not that I was terrible at it.  I survived four years of Honors English in high school (I actually did okay).  But my interest was always more towards math and science.  My love for these two subjects led me to a college degree in mechanical engineering and a career in the engineering and construction field.

I had no idea that writing would become such an important part of my life.  Writing has actually become a discipline that I look forward to each day.

I’ve been blogging for over six years.  And I’ve started dreaming and planning to write a book (or two or three someday).

What has amazed me the most about writing is its ability to connect people.  (Click here to read the rest.)

How has writing changed your world?  How has writing resulted in new connections for you?
