    money.  I'm in this thing for the money.  I want it.  The cash.  I want to roll in it.

    I need the money. Why write if you're not going to get paid? Do you think authors write books so they can sit there in the desk drawer? I love writing but I like food and shelter more, so it's for money.

    I'm mostly motivated to write non-fiction by wanting to share information about a topic in which I'm passionately interested. When I write a short story, it's not so much inspiration as it is imagination urging me to commit a story to my computer screen and/or paper. Both of these writing outlets give me satisfaction.

    This is not to suggest I'm not also motivated by money. I'm currently editing a manuscript for a fiction book writer and hope to gain many more of these assignments, lucrative ones.  Like most writers, I want someone to "show me the money."

    It's probably too late in my life for me to write something original and good enough to bring me fame, which is what I'd have wished for several decades ago--in addition to the satisfaction and money.

    As simply as it may sound, what inspires me is.... Love.

    I like to travel and take pictures, and I like to share them with everyone, I am known for always recounting my travel trips to anyone who would listen, so I decided to write.

    I would write no matter what because it's mostly anger that inspires me and I would like to save my teeth from jaw clenching. It's my therapy.

    My grade 8 English Teacher who encouraged me with it many years ago, plus I would rather write than talk at times, I can express myself better from what I've been told & I find that encouraging.

    Sometimes my thoughts or emotions. Other times, I agree with jasper420 wanting to be heard and pen and paper being the best way to express what I want or need to say.

    On Hub Pages, it's mostly personal experience and feeling like I can connect with and help others.  On other sites or writing for clients, it's all about the money.
