It’s Pretty Obvious, IWSG

So, I missed last month’s IWSG. 🙁

Second time I’ve done this, in like, the past few months, which I am not proud of. But there was a hurricane to survive, a Halloween party to throw, and everything that comes along with being human and living life here on this lovely planet of ours. So there are all my excuses. Now on with the show 🙂

November’s question: What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?

For me, it’s the actual writing part. And yes, I did give this some thought. I toyed around with getting great feedback/reviews from people because that shit is awesome. Like instant molly for your soul. But as high a high as that is, I dig the writing more. I’m not sure it needs to be explained here, in a writing blog hop, but you know what I mean. Opening the door to Narnia and all that. Losing yourself to your own words and own imagination. That’s the good stuff. The friends you make, the audience you gain, the seeing your name on someone’s TBR list—they’re all amazing perks to the wonderful bit of magic we’ve already been given.

Now what about you? What’s your favorite part of being a writer?

Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is a monthly blog hop for writers at all levels to share their fears and insecurities in a safe and encouraging place. Please drop by and say hi to Alex Cavanaugh who started this nifty concept in bringing us all together.

    I’m with you there. When the writing’s going well, it’s the greatest thing in the world. No matter how much I struggle with plots, it’s always worth it to actually be writing, to get the story out and onto the page. Nothing else like it.

    Rolling in late here, but I’m on board with what you’re saying. Pouring out the story and getting caught up in the moment of creation. It’s bliss. 🙂
