National Author Day - November 1

National Author's Day comes on November 1 of every year. It is a day to honor all the authors and encourage every writer in life to keep working on their magnum opus. Writing a novel or a small story is hard.

"The only way you can write is by the light of the bridges burning behind you." -

Richard Peck
