They say that "curiosity killed the cat", I say it made him smarter than that. Curiosity, it's good for all concerned
Curiosity is one of those curious things. It can be good or it can be bad, it all depends on how you use it. For this articles sake we're going to assume that the curiosity used here is the good kind. So, what is curiosity? It's wanting to know all you can about all things. Think about it. If you had no curiosity about things how would you learn? Why would you learn? If you don't care to know about anything how will you learn about anything? A curious mind is a busy mind.

Why Curiosity is Important
There are many reason why curiosity is important. One of the most important reasons that curiosity makes your mind active instead of passive. Not many people can function properly with a passive mind. As a writer I find curiosity rates right up there with perseverance. If you have an undeveloped sense of curiosity it becomes very hard to develop a story or article. You have to be curious about how things work and how people think to write something people will read.
Once your mind is active and your curiosity is bubbling your mind becomes more observant and open to new ideas. What could be better for a writer that the ability to become more open to new ideas. It's what we're all about.
This opens you up to whole new worlds and possibilities. All of the sudden your mind is work a mile a minute and questions you'd never thought of before come tumbling from your brain.
Now you become excited. All sorts of things seem possible. You are thinking plots and stories that are all new to you. How wonderful is this? The more you wonder, the more you question, and the more you learn. And to think it all came about because you became curious
