Would we still write for love & passion if we suddenly came into wealth?
What if money was no object? Where would you be? What would you be doing? Would you still be writing?
I would most certainly be writing whether or not I had money. I don't make any money from my writing yet but I still love what I do and love being part of a community of other writers.
yes mam. While you might have all the money in the world, expressing yourself threw writing is the best outlet to a healthy life
I don't make any money with my writing, but I still write. Therefore, I have to believe that I would continue writing. The difference being I would have a heck of a lot more time to do so.
Sure! It would give us something to do while sitting at the beach!
One of my greatest frustrations right now is a lack of time to write. If I came into money, perhaps I would finally have the time I want. Working mostly just gets in the way of my greater loves...like music and writing.
I agree with Jay Deck imagine having so much more time to write would be a wonderful thing I would definitely carry on writing ...
I don't make money writing either, but if I was independently wealthy, I'd still write. It's something that I have to do otherwise I'd end up with loads of unwritten stories floating around in my head.
Not having to worry about money would I'm sure, make the writing a lot easier ...
I can't imagine not writing - these outpourings are part of who I am - I was writing plays with a friend when I was 10 (we were mortified when the grown-ups laughed in the wrong place), I wrote long letters to my family from boarding school, long letters to multiple penfriends all round the world, 13-page letters every day to my boyfriends when I was away, poetry, essays, it never ceased. At University I contributed to our student law magazine, and, as a result, was "spotted" by a proper law magazine, who offered me a job on the spot. I decided not to accept as I wanted to complete my qualifications first, which I did. I wrote copiously in my work as a lawyer, and in my retirement I write every day........what has money got to do with it?

Do people still earn money on here? On hubpages? I am curious
by Susannah Birch6 months ago
I often see forum posts about how the site is 'dying', or asking why people would continue writing here after they've earned success on their own websites. So I thought I'd start a thread about WHY people still write...
