Writers Cafe - What Do You Enjoy About Writing? Why Do You Love To Write?

Sometimes we get so caught up in the social media, blogging and writing “shoulds” that we forget to slow down, and yes, even stop for a while.
I’ve been taking some time to reflect lately about my business direction, and have reaffirmed that my passion for writing is about connecting words and people, and in helping people reach their personal and business potential. But yes, I write for myself too. I can’t not write. It’s a passion and a form of self expression.
Heck, I even like writing shopping lists and to do lists. I’ve been reading an interesting book Write It Down Make It Happen by Henriette Klauser, author of Writing On Both Sides Of The Brain. I can identify with her premise. Writing things down for me is a way of processing my thoughts and learnings. How about you?
Take a moment and join me in exploring why we writers write (apart from the motivation of not starving.)

  • What got you started with writing professionally (or for your own enjoyment)?
  • What do you enjoy (or not enjoy) about writing?
  • Do you write things down to process your thoughts?

Anything about writing, blogging or business is fair game. I look forward to the discussion.
As an aside, one nice thing about writing and blogging is that others enjoy your work. So I’m uncharacteristically tooting my own horn here, but I got a real buzz about my Small Biz Mentor blog being named in the top 41 Absolute Best Blogs About Entrepreneurship & Small Business Blogs list.
A Writers Cafe Invitation - Do You Have A Question To Ask For A Future Cafe?
Also - one thought that cropped up in last weekend’s Writers Cafe was opening the hosting of the Writers Cafe open from time to time to our community members to pose a question or discussion starter. If you would like to pose a question, please let me know. You don’t need to do anything other than to send me a brief intro to set the scene, pose your question or discussion sparks and follow the conversation.
I’ll still be involved in the discussion. This might be a good opportunity if you have a question or issue you’re interested in feedback on - or perhaps a project you’d like to brainstorm.
Writers Cafe Skype Meetup
Can anyone who is interested in the proposed Skype meetup let me know times that suit you, as I’d like to finalize this.
Okay, back to the Writers Cafe discussion. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

"Critics are by no means the end of the law. Do not think all is over with you because you articles are rejected. It may be that the editor has his drawer full, or that he does not know enough to appreciate you, or you have not gained a reputation, or he is not in a mood to be pleased. A critic's judgment is like that of any intelligent person. If he has experience, he is capable of judging whether a book will sell. That is all. (Junior editor, Harper's Bazaar, 1866)"

  • Responsibility is like a guideline showing the path to your freedom. The more you wade away from your responsibilities the more indistinct your path to freedom becomes.
  • Nadine, Nadine the Lit Machine says books trump screen when it comes to the development of the imagination. In the week that the iPad was launched in the UK, Gordimer said: “There is no substitute for the book, and it would be a great deprivation and danger if the book should disappear and be replaced by something with a battery.” She said of mobile phone and computer technology: “I am not talking in a fuddy-duddy way about this. These things are wonderful for disseminating information. “But for poetry, for novels, stories – those things that have the imagination...
