Thursday Thirteen #145
Hello Thursday! I’m sure you can tell right away from visiting here that I love to write. I think many people do, regardless if they actually write or not. For me, I’ve decided it’s something I want to pursue and I’m trying to make something of it.
For this week’s list of thirteen items, I’ll list why I write. I’d love to know why *you* write. Please let me know in the comments.
|Thirteen reasons I write by Aaron Crocco
1. It’s a fantastic way to get emotions from the day out of my head.
2. It’s a thrill to actually create something from scratch.
3. When a character does something unexpected, I know then that they are truly alive.
4. It’s nice to know you’re good at something different than your day job.
5. I find it exciting to be part of something larger and to know there is a great community here.
6. Validation by other writers is my biggest driving force.
7. Creating your own world is fun.
8. It’s great to know you get to dictate how a story ends. If I don’t like something, I simply change it.
9. The thought of possibly publishing, while very difficult, is a constant goal to have.
10. I get to read the works of other great writers out there.
11. Writing has gotten me to read more. (See all posts tagged with Kindle)
12. Finishing a paragraph or chapter lets me know that I can do this.
13. Accomplishment is the greatest feeling in the world.
