The improvemeent of writing skills was my primary motovation for hubpages. I love to write not only for myself but for others. Writing helps me form my thoughts, set goals for many areas of my life, and sort through life events. It heals my soul, entertains my mind, and just makes me feel good even if no one else is going to read what I wrote. However, people will have to read what I write. I write to protest bills I feel I have paid, to give instructions to people, to tell people how to do things and to tell my sister I love her. I write for people every day. I want them to understand what I say and not have to spend their time guessing about my meaning. I want to learn to edit better. I enjoy the company of others writers and hope to make some friends, also. As far as making money, well, I wouldn't turn money down but it is not my primary motivation.
