Why do you want to be a writer? Because I want to be a writer. Does there really need to be any other reason than that? Why does anyone want to do anything? Does there need to be an explanation other than that is what they are compelled to do? Sure it might not make sense, but A LOT of things that people do don’t make sense. Do those things always work out for them? Not always, but by following their impulse, their desire, they end up without regret — at least most of the time. Going for something is almost always better than not going for something.
Even though I am a TERRIBLE writer by most accounts, if not all accounts, I’m going to do this because at the end of the day, it is all I can see myself doing. And I am proud of my blog. I hardly write on it, but that is because it was extrinsically motivated. I was taught how to create a website and blog with the sole purpose of, ONLINE BUSSINESS — PASSIVE INCOME — MAKE A BLOG, MAKE AN EBOOK, BE AN INTERNET MILLIONAIRE! Screw you. That nonsense destroyed for me, and what could have possibly been a creative outlet. Forget making money online, forget the rewards, let’s learn to LOVE the process. The process of learning to write, the process of building connections, meeting people through our quest to be a better writer, and becoming a better writer.
Cheers to that. No pressure for MINIMUM 3000 WORDS FOR LONG-FORM CONTENT SEO OPTIMIZATION.
