Writing Exercise

You have been granted one day by the federal government to declare as a holiday…
Room to Write, pg. 126

Heh, this is an interesting one. What do I value so much that I would give everyone the day off (except the post office *evil grin*) to celebrate it? Books? Writing? Gaming? Love? Yes, I know there is already a holiday for “Love” that sickly sweet, pink, Valentine’s Day…Blech… My holiday for “Love” would celebrate comfy relationships, not illusionary romance, but that’s beside the point. It’s not what I would pick for a holiday. Oh, I know what I’d do. I’d give everyone the day after Halloween off. So everyone could trick or treat late and go to costume parties. That way you wouldn’t have to worry about going to work or school the next day. You could sleep late, have some candy apples for a snack, then go out and enjoy the autumn day. Maybe have a football game. Just relax and take a deep, deep breath. Use the day to turn off the cell phones, the pagers, turn off the computer even. Use the day after dressing up as something else, to just be yourself.
