Thanks to all who participated in the most recent poll (How do you really view your writing?). The majority of you chose “as a passion/reason for being;” with equal number selecting “as a service to others” and “as a hobby.”
For me, I’ve been teetering between “as a passion/reason for being” and “as a service for others.” So then I thought, why can’t I choose both?
Why does writing has to be labeled so narrowly? Restricted?
I think that it can be any one of these above depending on your goal, or where you are currently in your life.
Writers shouldn’t have to confine themselves in order to fit in a mold set by others. Our creativity needs to be kept free, unrestrained, in order to be the most productive. Especially for the first draft.
Don’t you agree?
