How often do you write just to write, rather than to be published?
I write all the time just because I feel like writing. Sometimes I go back and edit things in my writing. If I don't feel like publishing it, I don't.
As a writer I believe that written expression is to be shared, the ultimate goal. Whether it is published on line or in books is not important, nor is the income it may generate. What is important is the connection of people through language. In my earlier days much of my work was not shared, due to my expectations of quality and often doubts about my thoughts. However having written some tweleve books and thousands of poems, I like to share my every thought. Hubpages gives a wonderful platform for my work and it is indeed an honour and privilege to share with other writers of similar intention.
Sometimes I even type just to feel my fingers creating on the keyboard. A third of the letters and characters on my keyboard are worn away. It doesn't matter for typing/ writing. But, it makes me second guess myself when I'm making ASCII art (pictures created with the standard keyboard characters).
Never, there is an old saying, can't remember where from:
'no man, but a fool, ever wrote except for money.'
all the time. i don't care in the least about being published, i just enjoy putting my thoughts, ideas and knowledge into a story.
I don't remember the last time I wrote something to get it published. A writer would write mostly to share expressions and stories.

How often do you write (and for how long at a stretch?)

What's the difference? Which are you? Are words your passion or your business? Are you a creator or a teacher? Is the product of YOUR writing meant to inspire or inform? I'm so curious about this.

Rejections slips are a part of every writer's life. There is even a standing joke about how writers have to be able to paper their walls with rejections before their career takes off.So, I'll ask creative writers here to share their own methods and ideas about how to maintain enthusiasm for...
