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.
Thanks, Faith. I'm not sure that non-writers necessarily think of writing as a passion. They often think of it more as "a nice thing for some people to be able to do if that happens to be something they like to do."
Hi Marlene, wow, what a blessing of a family you have! I have no doubt your writings pass the test of approval each and every time. How wonderful your daughter is a journalist, so she understands the passion for writing!!! Thanks for sharing here.
Hi MsDora, that is so lovely that your daughter is also a writer and encourages you and your amazing writes. Yes, love is truly support. Beautiful answer! God bless.
Hi Dreamhowl, oh, how very lovely to have such support from your loving parents and boyfriend too! That is wonderful to have the same interests. Thanks for sharing and answering here this day. Blessings.
You are so lucky to have such a supportive boyfriend!
Hello uNicQue, thanks so much for sharing here. That is so very lovely that your boyfriend supports you so much, how sweet! It is understandable for parents (you know parents) to be concerned a bit, which I guess is natural. Great answer.
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!!!
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!!!
Wow, you are so lucky to have such support! It really helps, doesn't it, to have all that support?
After reading some of the other comments, I am even more convinced that I am blessed to have several in my life who lift me with their support.
Hi sweet Kim, wow what a blessing to have such great encouragement and thank you for sharing!!!
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.
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 ...
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!
Oh wow, look at all of these comments here! : ) Thanks Michael, what a lovely way to look at such. I know your nieces are in such awe of their talented uncle! How can they not be!!! Hugs
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!
I think it is pretty darn awesome that you are able to support yourself with your writing.
Aw krillco, thanks for the honest answer here. I'm sorry, but we are all here, and that is why we are here, to be read by other writers!!! Hugs
Hi Toytasting, that is so very awesome when one has the support or at least encouragement from both family and friends. Thanks for answering!
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
