Best National Author’s Day Messages: This year, National Authors’ Day falls on November 1st. We all know that this is a day to celebrate authors and their accomplishments, but how should we go about doing so?
As you might imagine, there are many ways to honor the work of authors and recognize their contributions to society. In this blog post, I will offer up some ideas for celebrating National Authors’ Day in your way!
History Of National Authors’ Day
“What is an author?” This question from the renowned French philosopher, Michel Foucault has deep effects on the interpretation readers give their work.
As his argument goes – authorship should be held accountable for how we read it and interpret its messages in our ways according to what kind of person they want us (as a reader) to portray ourselves as being when reading this passage or book.
The bottom line though remains no matter who you think created something with words on paper; at heart, all creators have creativity flowing through them like blood pressure & oxygen does throughout human bodies.
National Authors’ Day is a day that celebrates the creativity of authors, storytellers & writers. It falls on November first every year – but why? There are many theories about how it came to be this way – here are some: One theory suggests that National Authors’ Day was created by Senator Robert Byrd who wanted to celebrate American authors and their works that portray the American culture.
Another theory suggests that National Authors’ Day was created to commemorate one of America’s most famous authors, Washington Irving who wrote The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow (which is a short story) & Rip Van Winkle (a novel).
The people who write the novels, poems, and other texts that most of us have read at some point in our lives are called writers.
A writer can be defined as someone who writes with the intent to communicate or inform others on a particular subject matter; however, there’s more than one type among them including novelists (writers), poets/essayists, etc…
The only person who could have written Homer’s epic poems was the ancient Greek poet.
“That brings us back to Foucault’s question,” you say? Well, no one knows for certain because there is no physical evidence left behind in any of his work that would prove its author other than our presumption and assumptions based on what we know about him from contemporary sources like Aristotle or Plutarch; but let me assure you as someone interested right now – it has got be somebody worth listening too!
– It all started back in November of 2006 when President George W. Bush signed a proclamation to officially recognize the day as National Authors’ Day. He also called for Americans to celebrate “the written word” and educated people about authors who have had a lasting influence on literature, history, culture, or public discourse over time.

National Authors’ Day Syndrome
With the rise of popularity in social media, there has been a surge recently in people putting themselves out there as authors.
These self-professed authors are quick to negotiate deals with publishing companies and booksellers alike without ever having even written their first draft or read through it once!
Research in deep-level content and relevant topics.
