What piece of positive news have you read lately– would you like to talk about it in the comments, or make a post of your own? Would you like to visit Goonj or replicate its model in your community? Have you signed up for We are the World Blogfest? If not, please consider it: it is just a link to a positive post, once a month, and we’re fine with combining it with your regular posts!

If you’re a writer, do good views make you want to write? What’s your idea of an ideal writer’s retreat? If you’re a reader, do you ever wonder what writers’ lives are like– and what places they write in?
