I write just for the pure enjoyment of creating something with words.
Writing demands "thought."
Thought is exercise for "neurons" just sitting there waiting to be challenged!
It's just my opinion. I think, just like any other organ, the brain needs exercise to stay healthy and functional.
Writing and the thought necessary to paint a picture in words, may just be, what is necessary to stave off premature dementia/alzheimers.
Of course no one reads my stuff, so hell, I, selfishly, re-read 'em and appreciate my ability for expression.
I am, no doubt, an egoist.
Your thoughts? (not on my egoism...lol)
Writing is expression of thoughts. It's the action, for which, make the thoughts a reality for most. If the thought stays in your head, then it remains just that...a thought and nothing more.
It isn't until the words are created, either by writing it down or voicing out loud, that make the thoughts a reality.
I think you're an extremely intelligent person, with a slightly warped sense of humor, kind a like Marine(no offense intended).
Do you have an ego? Sure, everyone displays theirs everyday. There are two things that make people with egos dangerous...(a) they cannot ever seem to see the line they shouldn't cross and (b) are ignorant in more ways than one can count on one hand.
You're just fine the way you are.
Nothing like a healthy ego eh?
I agree that the mind is like every muscle, it needs to be worked to stay strong. The challenge of imparting knowledge or understanding on just about any topic is invigorating mentally speaking. I am not even sure it matters what it is that you want to get across, from why to buy this, a crazy story from my childhood to a how to article the effort of conveying what is on your mind should keep you sharp as well as improve your skills in writing!
I have just started writing in a creative way..never had much interest in it really. I found Hubpages kind of by accident and just liked coming to read. Then one day I figured I would try to write something and found it to be fun! I am not a "writer" by any means but I try.. I am not here to make money or to impress anyone, which my writing could never do anyway
I just have fun here!!
I love your attitude and you expressed yourself well! ..:-)
I'm gonna read one of your "hubs."
I stalked Storm to be here and caught her "just for fun" thing with hub pages
I write for fun too.. when am in the mood.. I'm really not interested in the money here as I make enough of it elsewhere..
I just read "Last of the Evening Sun."
I left you a comment...
Keep writing woman! :-)
Hello and thanks a.lohr...you guys are going to get me all teary eyed...
Sharing your knowledge and shows what you really know and don't know
I enjoy writing..since I am having a huge block on my writing outside of hubpages (meaning on my stories ) I am writing on here a lot more..
I'm hoping that I get inspired to write again but so far...nothing *sigh*
I write hubs to: share my experiences and knowledge, learn while researching for the hub and make residual income.
I liked writing in school, but didn't even give it a thought as to using it as a career. As times are a bit tough at the moment with limited income and a young child I started looking for other ways to bring in some money and came across HubPages in a search. I read a lot of hubs to start with, and liked what I read, which then inspired me to try my luck. I have not had much success on the earning front but have renewed my acquaintance with writing and am enjoying all that HubPages offers.
I read your "hub" about your boy and the hospital.
I left you a comment
Thanks for the reply qwark.
I am pleased you liked it as it was my first attempt at a short story for years. I replyed to your comment.
If you sign up to hubpages again with my referal tracker I can give you another good reason as to why you should write a Hub, even a hundred hubs, ch-ching
Fortunately, I'm loaded...ch ching! lol
To make money?
I also joined hubpages to make new friends from all over the world.
At first I wrote to earn money then after writing a few Hubs realized people appreciated my advice.

Few read and respond to 'em.I love my "followers," and I read some of their stuff. It takes time, thought, perseverence and concern to write a good in depth, profound "hub." Few things in this nutty" world crammed with "nutty" people inspire me anymore. It ALL...

What comes first when you decide to write a new hubDo you use the adwords program to find key words or do you write and then find key words to fit your hubs topic?
by Alistair Olver 10 years ago
How do you like to prepare for a hub?Do you like to write out an outline on paper first or start typing straight away?
by Anon 14 years ago
Do you have a particular technique for writing your hubs?Do you write it out first on paper, or do you create it as you go along? How long does it take you ,on average to write a hub?x
by India Arnold 12 years ago
This is one of the first hubs I wrote here. I want to know if I should continue to write on this subject in novel form or just let the piece stand on its own as a VERY short story? I haven't made corrections or edited this, it just spilled out onto the page as is 6 months ago, and I seem to feel...
by Sondra Rochelle 8 years ago
I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning center to find out what they should be doing, and then asking for help to...
