Reena’s Exploration Challenge #137 – Writer’s Reality

When I sit down to write so often there is an idea in my head to explore and elaborate on.

It’s also the reason why sometimes I don’t write. There can be days where I have nothing to say in relation to a prompt and so rather than force something, and not be happy with it, I let it go, as there’s always next week.

My reality is I have to be enjoying the experience. It must be of value to me. If my readers find some meaning in it be it only entertainment then that I consider is a winner.

I write for me. I long ago came to the conclusion that writing to please others was not a good way to go. I’m not trying to sell my work; another aspect of my reality is my short attention span!

But when I start and I find the words flowing then I get on the proverbial roll, as they say and away I go. Word limits are useful but so often a pain as I have to limit my verboseness. You might say I like the sound of my own writing.

As long as I enjoy the experience and feel I have something to add to the conversation then I shall continue.

It’s a lot of fun playing with words, shaping them into a meaning you hope makes sense to others for that is another aspect of my reality, as long as I continue to blog I am mindful that from time to time other bloggers will read and comment and that reality urges me to strive for the best I can do at the time.

Words, so many possibilities, so much fun.

    I always enjoy reading your posts because they are meaningful or entertaining.

    Nice to know the mental process behind writing, as it is unique to each writer. I agree that writing should be for oneself. The difference between a keyword-stuffed commercial blog and a piece of literature will always be there.

    What comes through in your essay is your enjoyment of writing. I know I enjoy reading what you write.

  5. I like how you’ve handled this… with openness, honesty, and still delivering on the prompt. i.e. an exploration of why you write 🙂

    Oh boy…I can relate to this Michael. Haven’t written anything for so long I think I might have forgotten how to. :/
