A Writer’s Motivation

Posted on

At the end of my writing week, I enjoy chewing over my accomplishments. When I receive notification of an acceptance, excitement bubbles through my veins. When I see the printed article that might have a thousand readers, I’m amazed.

The question is: “Why do I continue to write?”

  • What is my drive, the passion, the motivation?
  • Why do I continue to write? Is it for money?
  • Is it for applause? See me, see what I can do?

Obviously the big money isn’t the answer for me. Applause—no, I like kudo’s, but more than that is the drive to help others.

But what about you?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • How do you find incentive to write for others?
  • What is the reason you schedule time to write?
  • When you write, are you engrossed and excited?

Write a paragraph in response and post it in the comment section.
