Favorite Part of Writing

I bet you can’t guess what the IWSG question is for this month? If the answer to that is no, you may be kinda slow. But I will repeat the full thing just in case.

What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?

Okay, I used “part” and not “aspect” in the title, so that could have thrown you for a loop, even if it is the same thing. Of course part has an R in it that aspect doesn’t have. So maybe they are a bit different. Maybe the R left home early and never became part of aspect. You think?

In case it is not clear by now, my favorite part is being able to create stories and worlds and such about anything at all. Just watching as they take form while I am writing sure works for me. Something about writing the final words at the end, which I have had in my head since I started, that is so nice.

Also when other people enjoy them that is rewarding, can’t deny that. And you know, being able to not have to get up and go out in traffic and such would be a nice perk. Too bad that isn’t true yet though.

The only thing that gets hate is marketing, but since I quit doing that very much, pfft, nothing gets much hate these days. Just enjoy it and keep on keeping on at my sea. Do you have any favorite or hated parts to being a writer?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

Favorite will always be editing and revising. Once that first draft is done, I can see what I need to do to make the story come alive.

    Yeah, that does allow you to kick it up a bit

I can tell you enjoy crafting the stories. It shows in your work. I hope you take that as a huge compliment! I’m like Alex. I like the editing, knowing it’s done and being able to go back and nitpick until it meets my tough standards. 🙂
