Passion. It is what pumps iron into my blood, but that passion more often than not gets me in-trouble. My blood starts to boil, and my mind is explosive.
Passion, though, is what's keeping me alive. Passion therefore drives me.
Passion! Most certainly, this is important for me too! Like I said further up the page though - I think it is important for passion to have direction. Perhaps passion for a goal or an ideal, or several of either is best? What is your biggest passion?
My biggest passion, actually, is activism, as this world could be 10x better if we would just be tolerant towards each other. Most people think that those who are simply different from them are going to "Hell". My other passion, writing.
Passion drives my decisions and paths I take.My love of freedom is what drives me to protect it.
Nothing drives me,
Yet, I drive it,
my better half drives it,
our childen drive it,
and rest assured because our children drive it,
I pay dearly for their priviledge to drive it!
Challenging the status quo drives me. That which is true and right should stand.
However, there are many ideas and statements that should be challenged and updated, or simply shown as untrue or wrong.
The people I love, a strong ambition to succeed and do good things, a passion for life, and never accepting failure as an option.
The number one thing that drives me is when someone questions my ability to do something. That is what makes me strive for bigger and better things.
The desire to have a better life. I accept the idea of having setbacks, but I do everything possible to take every situation and make the best of it. You have to fight in order to win
Bad decisions, I just want to make always the right ones but sometimes it's impossible. Mind you it gives me an alternative plan.
Double Gloucester cheese... downhill.
No, seriously, I've set myself the task of completing a series of nine (and it might become ten) books in the 'RAVENFEAST' series, and I've found these Hubpages a help in developing my writing. By writing and commenting here I'm organising myself and my time.
Nearly halfway there, and about two thirds of the way through book four - 'BETRAYED' - I've got 'an angle' on writing style, selecting and using words rather than just falling back on words I use in everyday life. That concentrates the mind wonderfully as the phrase goes, a form of self-propulsion.
Aside from that there is my railway modelling, working on kits and re-working proprietary models, painting, liverying, weathering etc. I split my time during the day and weekends between what I want to do and what I have to do. At weekends I take a rest from writing.
Goals are an excellent motivator aren't they? I have set myself a number of goals over the past few months. I've had to set my writing goals asside for a brief period unfortunately - Just moved house and I'm getting married on April 19th
Congrats on the forthcoming nuptials, and keep up the goals (although the patter of small feet might interfere with them at some time in the not-too-distant future), and moving house is a definite block on creativeness! Keep on truckin', man!.

What drives you and inspires you to write?We all have a motivating factor behind our writing endeavors. I for one love chemistry and I just love writing articles on the same. Money is also a key factor but without an Ad-sense account it just stopped being a factor. I thought I would quit once I was...

Is there one thing that makes you anxious to get out of bed each day?Not counting the obvious, like a need to go to work...is there a reason you are eager to begin whatever life holds for you each day as you plant your feet on the floor?

The current mantra on HP is that personal experience is everything. Research is not worthy.Where did this come from?I recently published a page about Animals that Fly, it got a score in the nineties and went straight to Owlcation. Well done to me.But of the twenty or so species on that page how...
