#IWSG: Favorite aspect of being a writer


Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Thank you to this month’s co-hosts: Joylene Nowell Butler, Jen Chandler, Mary Aalgaar, Lisa Buie Collard, Tamara Narayan, Tyrean Martinson, and Christine Rains. Here is the complete list of participants.

NaNo has started and  I’m using it to turn the short story Town Curse into a full length novel. Jumping back into that world and dealing with those characters again after a year or two is so exciting. I am hoping to have the first post of  a few series of posts I plan to do ready to share with everyone this month as well. Enough about that let’s move on to the question posed by IWSG this month. 🙂

What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?

I have to say creating the worlds and characters for my novels and short stories is my favorite aspect of being a writer. To be able to create something that someone else is interested in reading is a lot of fun.

Also, I have to say interacting with readers and followers is right behind it. I love talking with everyone and learning how excited or intrigued they are about something I’m working on.

That’s it for now.

Look forward to your comments. 🙂

    Hi Diane!

    Yes, I so enjoy getting comments from readers on my writing. It’s good to know that someone else enjoys what you’re doing. We write to be read and, yes, we all want to be published in some capacity. The reason for that is so that we can share our work with others, to be heard, understood and be joined in our adventures by real people who can provide feedback to our words and our worlds! Happy November to you!


  2. I have to agree that world building is super fun! You get to make up all sorts of characters and get things all planned out (sometimes before even writing a word of the story)! So excited to find another nanowrimo participant! Good luck and I hope you win!

    Aah…being their creator is an empowering feeling, no? 🙂 Good luck for NaNo. Visiting from IWSG.

  4. Creating worlds and getting to know characters is great. That’s cool that you’re turning a short story into a full length novel. Good luck with it! Happy Nano.
