What Is Your Favourite Aspect of Being a Writer?

take-532097_1280There are many good things about being a writer; choosing your own hours, working wherever you want, but my favourite aspect of being a writer has to be telling the stories you need to tell. It’s those voices in your head that tell you what to write, which helps determine what genre/s to write in and how you need to go about telling them. Sure, friends and family tend to give us strange looks or even a wide berth, but we’re fortunate enough not to be considered strange enough to be placed in a padded cell – well, at least not yet, anyway.

minionvoicesIt’s the spark of an idea that comes to you through experience; from something you see, hear or read, through an issue that you feel passionate about. It’s the idea of being able to create people’s lives, places and whole new worlds within our imaginations. Our imagination lights up and fires our creative souls to produce something you hope others will appreciate. In short, it’s the joy of creating something we see in our minds eye and moulding it into shape through the use of words. The best part of being a writer is to give those voices free reign; after all everyone has a story to tell – even those voices within your own head. 😉

Without a doubt I’ll be giving free reign to the voices in my head this month by yet again participating in NaNoWriMo. I’ve been busy doing my preparations, so I’m eager to get started (just don’t expect to see too much of me around here for a while)!

What is your favourite aspect of being a writer? Do you enjoy the writing process? Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year?

    1. Hi raimeygallant. Good on you for taking up the challenge of NaNoWriMo! The first time can be a bit overwhelming, but I think what really helps is the encouragement from other writers also doing it. You’ve made new friends as well as making progress with your novel and that’s very much a win-win for any writer. If you’re interested, you can find me there as Debbie Johansson. Thanks for stopping by and best of luck with NaNo!

    1. Thanks Stephanie. You’re right – maybe this is why so many people want to be writers these days! Thanks for stopping by – it’s good to meet you. 🙂

    1. Thanks Tyrean. It’s good to hear your doing NaNoWriMo. Best of luck with it and have fun! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  1. Debbie, I so agree with their being so many aspects of writing that we writers enjoy. I am glad you listen to the voices in your head and joined NaNo. I am on board this time also.
    All the best.
    Shalom aleichem,

    1. Hi Pat. It’s good to know you’re doing NaNoWriMo as well. I don’t know if you want to buddy up, but you’ll find me there as Debbie Johansson. Best of luck to you, too! 🙂

      1. Thanks Pat! I’ve added you as a buddy also. Best of luck to you too! 🙂

  2. I did my first CampNaNo in July and won!
    I think it’s less stressful than the November NaNo which I haven’t attempted yet…maybe one of these years I will…we’ll see!
    Good luck with NaNo! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the good luck wishes Michelle – I fear I may be needing it! Congrats on attempting and winning your first CampNaNo! I’ve heard about it but never tried that one before, so I’ll need to look into it (something a little less stressful would be nice). Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂

  3. I’m with you 100% on loving writing for the opportunity to tell my stories. Finding the right words, shaping the ideas, molding my characters, I love it alll.

    Good luck with Nano. I did it once and was successful, but not sure if I would ever attempt it again, but, my hats off to all of you do do.

    1. Thanks Far Away Eyes! I’ve done NaNoWriMo a couple of times over the years and every time I wonder why I do it. I’m a glutton for punishment I guess! Thanks for stopping by – it’s good to meet you. 🙂
