Why do you write and what do you hope to accomplish by doing so?
I write because I like writing. I write as an outlet for my research, experiences, opinions, gripes, contemplations and desires. I write because words flow much more fluently from the tip of my pen (or fingertips) than from the tip of my tongue.
I hope for the accomplishment of having others enjoy reading what I write.
I write because I have to. All these twisted, funny (to me) ideas ricochet around my brain until either I write them down, or take a Tylenol. I don't care for Tylenol.
I'm hoping to hone my skills, work for a local paper as a humor columnist, and one day (dream of all dreams) become a syndicated humor columnist and have lunch with my hero Dave Barry.
I have to say I write because I enjoy writing, and love to write poetry. Have been writing the All American Novel for years and one day I hope to be published. It would be nice to see my work published, or at least some of my work. I write at times to unleash some of the pent up emotions inside, finding it a great therapy to put emotions on paper, journal, blogs, and the likes.
I write because (a) it is a form of expressing myself logically and coherently (b) It helps to create documents that can serve the future generations (c) I LOVE IT (d) It gives me a sense of accomplishment to just create something on paper and give life to my imaginations.
Sometimes I write about the conflict inside me. When I do, it's because I hope to relieve some of the emotional pressure build up it causes. That is writing nobody else sees.
Other times, I write with an aim to move the people who read my material. I want to move them to act for a better world, a better future, a better life. That writing may be fiction or deeply researched factual material. Either can be used to convey ideas and motivations.
And either way, the simple, physical action of writing feels good to me. Whether by pen or keyboard, it feels good.
I write because it is in my blood. I enjoy entertaining and taking someone away from their own crazy world for a moment and let them live in one of mine where in the end, it all comes out right (mostly).
I hope to accomplish success, I would love to become published globally and put on someones bookshelf after they have read the whole book. I dream big.
i write simply because it's my hobby. i also write to tell people about the little knowledge i have. and i intent to make millions of people happy and informed.
What I hope to do is the simple question. I hope to be published and read the world over. Why I do it is another, as I have been writing for twenty five years or so and have yet to come close to that goal. I think the main reason I continue to write is that it is my escape from this dull drab world. It is my sanctuary in a world where anything is possible.
I write because it is something i like to do in my free time. Gives me something to do.
I write because I learn while I write and I find it amusing. I hope to help others learn sth new or read sth interesting. Reputation as a great writer would be a huge accomplishment, earning a few extra bucks, too :-)

How long have you been writing? Why do you write? What have you accomplished?It's time to brag about yourself. I am still new to the writing community and lack writer's wisdom. My friends don't care about writing, so I'm in uncharted waters. I need some insight from...

I believe HubPages would greatly benefit from implementing a stronger, more thorough training period for new members. I have been writing for the internet for over seven years now. I know that may not seem long to some who have been writing longer than that. Yet in that time, I have written for...

I'm always curious what prompts people to start writing blogs. Is there something on their mind they need to get off their chest? Do they hope to make money off their thoughts? Or maybe they just want to share their expertise with the world? Whatever the reason, I'm glad they do it,...
