Does your family support you in your writings or do they even care, if not, who is your biggest ...


Family, do they care about your writings and support you or not and, if not, who gives you the most support of your writing? Thanks for answering.

    Hi Lisa, wow, great answer here! Yes, when one writes, it is important to the one writing and whether or not anyone in one's family ever reads it matters not, but to me, if they know it is your passion, you would think they may encourage one a bit.

    Wow, Abby, yes, I can see how publishing your first book could make them have a change of heart : ) I can relate to the mindset of "wasting time on the Internet" for sure, except for my hubby. How beautiful about your parents and you too ...

    Hello Laura, how very interesting and thank you for sharing here. You have made an excellent point, and that is, just maybe if they would just read, maybe they would understand from where you are coming. Great answer here and detailed!

    Hi Mary, yes, I think sometimes they think we are wasting a lot of time on here, when it is something we are passionate about, but I am glad they understand now!!!

    Michael, that's one of the things that has so endeared me to Hubpages is that I have found a family who not only reads my work, but they get it!

    Wow, Wayne, thanks for sharing all here and the great answer! You have made a valid point as far as just exactly what is support. You are blessed to have such family who do "support" and at least do not discourage you in your passion in this life.

    Hi FatFreddysCat, that is pretty cool that they think it's cool that you write Hubs even though they don't read. Yes, that is a very good point about finding that audience who desires to read what you write. Thanks!!!

    Hi Sparklea! Thanks so much for sharing all here, that is so sweet to want to share the "Hug" with all. You have made such valid points here. I tend to encourage my family in their passions, and you're right, we cannot expect such in return. Hugs
