While working in a factory this summer I decided to create a list of 5 reasons I love being a writer. So, here it is!
#1: I create things.
Everything I do while writing is an act of creation. If I am writing a feature on someone, I am creating a profile of them to share with readers. If I am writing a short story, I am creating a memory in the mind of the readers. If I am writing a novel, I am giving the readers an entire world for them to enjoy.
#2: I plant emotion.
When I write I am planting emotion into a story and that emotion seeps back out to the reader, connecting them to the characters and the story.
#3: I serve others.
By writing I give people enjoyment of a good story and I give them relief from the stresses of the world.
#4: I teach others.
With my writing I can impart knowledge and moral lessons to the readers. I can educate the readers about things they otherwise would never have known. I can help the readers understand things that they may have known about but not understood.
#5: I don't have to work meaningless tasks in a factory full of people going nowhere in life!!!
What are some of your reasons that you love being a writer?
