Why Write

In a recent post on his Facebook page one of the things a friend of mine listed me as was a writer. Frustrated writer I suppose would be more truthful. First and foremost I am a thinker and observer of what goes on around me. My mind is constantly running at least one thought through endless scenarios and combinations and usually multiple thoughts at any given time. It’s a trait that can be both useful and troublesome. Another friend once told me I would make a good counselor because I saw more answers to problems she was having than she did herself and in situations like that my thought process can be a useful trait but it’s also easy to get lost in the thoughts and spend to much time trying to find the best way of doing everything and never actually getting anything done

I suppose it’s fairly common for people who like to read and have a good imagination to want to write as well and I fall into this category like ,many of you. Though most of my stories remain in my head or just as quick notions written down in various notebooks. As I told my friend once I can come up with the big ideas easily, original plot twists and fleshing out whole worlds for the characters in my stories, it’s the actual conversations between said characters that always seem unreal to me.

Maybe that’s one of the reasons I started blogging back on yahoo( and I still miss 360) as in some ways my blog posts tend to be a bit easier to get out of my head as they are generally more factual in nature and don’t require creating whole new worlds even though they do allow me to strectch the mind a bit and get creative something I have always enjoyed.

Reading that post has inspired me to get back at it. I finally pulled the opening sequence to an idea that has been peculating in my brain for some time out of my head and put it down into words and if I say so myself it is quite an interesting opening paragraph. But more will surely come as I am challenging myself to write something every day whether it’s a piece of a story or a blog post or “something completely different“. I like the challenge of creating something interesting and it helps clear out my thought process and let me move on to fresh ideas. It’s icing on the cake if you guys find my writings interesting as well but in the end I do it for myself because I enjoy it.

Today’s trivia question is even easier than yesterdays and no it’s not a trick question.

Who is your favorite author?

Extra point if you tell us why you like them.

Have a creative day everyone.

    I am an eclectic reader, so I don’t really have a favorite author. I liked to be entertained when I read. Sometimes, I want a mystery that makes me think and try to solve the mystery before the end of the book. Sometimes I like a crime drama, with an intriging story. I love a good comedy, because I think it is healthy to laugh. I’m not big on romance, unless it has a good story line. Sci-Fi doesn’t do much for me any more, but I used to love to read it. Biographies and Autobiographies catch my interest if it is someone I want to know more about…but, they have to be well written. History is one of my favorite genres, especially local and state history. I recently read a book called The Blue Orchard, and it currently is on my favorite list for local history. To me, there is nothing like holding a good book in my hands and getting involved in the story. I love to read!
