Happy Valentines Day! In celebration of this lovely day I thought it would be appropriate to list the things I love about being a writer. What do you love about writing?
- Being able to go into a zone and create something that is mine alone
- Naming characters
- The writing community
- The aha moments
- The feeling of hope it provides
- Looking back at my work and asking, “Did I really write that?”
- Rejections (Yes, I even love these because they are proof that I am trying)
- Discovering that my imagination is much greater than I know
- The serenity I get from it
I think I can go on and on and on but I will stop there. Writing to me equals love. Words last longer than flowers.
