    I use writing to get out all these ideas that are constantly floating around in my head. If I don't write, my brain is just too hyperactive and I can't get anything else done. It's enough motivation to keep writing everyday that I have to get a couple things out of me for me to even be able to go to sleep at night.

    I am trying to build a reader base. That motivates me a lot. I also like earning a little extra money for buying my grandkids little presents.

    Movies I watch, books I read, anything that inspires me as well as the constant drive to change things for the better - these are all motivational factors that keep me writing each day.

    Reading is the best writing motivator I know. Reading feeds the mind that fuels the urge to write and write and write.

    My motivators are music and  reading and dreaming.. I dream a lot of my stores and poems. and every once in a while I will be watching a movie and something will come to me., II will be driving down the road and then I start seeing lines in a poem just come to me.. I have to stop and write them down.

    Often I just start writing. Sometimes the creative juices start to flow and it turns into a Hub. Writing provides its own motivation.

    Not that I need much motivation. I just love to write for the love of writing. I am writing more than ever before now because this is how I have always wanted to make my living. Establishing a reader base to show them what I am all about, and then unleashing my new novel upon them. Ultimately, I want my writing to set me free.

    The joy of it. There is just something very special about a sequence of words that come to you from somewhere unknown that have a meaning that was more than you ever intended.

    I need to write everyday and writing on hubpages being part of a writing community inspires so many ideas.  I am happier and more focused the more I write.

    My first motivation every day is money. I want to get paid for my writing.

    My second motivation is love of writing. Often, I am inspired by the paid assignments. I love to take some of them further.

    On Sundays, my motivation is inspiration and support for my writing communities.

    It's all good for the most part.

    I have been learning much about topics that I thought I knew a lot about.  I constantly find myself thinking about the next topic to write about.  I have been the eternal student and writing is part of that learning experience.
