I’ve struggled this past week. I’ve struggled to come up with a cool, new creative post that also educates.
And then, this one girl answered.
From Twitter. Her screen name is @Xenani. She linked me to a recent blog post she wrote, “Write for Yourself.” And it got me thinking. Lately, I’ve been writing short stories and my book—I even entered a short story contest through Columbia University’s Literary Magazine in New York.
Yet I found myself struggling with a new blog post idea (can anyone say “Writer’s Block?”). My new tweep reminded me why I write in the first place. I write because I love it. Remembering this simple fact, about WHY I write, gave me the idea for this blog post. Writer’s Block solved!
So, here’s my question to you: Why do YOU write?
Take the poll below, then check the results. This one’s strictly for you–to force you to look deep down and think. And of course, it’s fun to see what others think!
Always remember the reason you first began writing. Reach to those roots when you hit Writer’s Block, and find inspiration!
