I love to write. It is a hobby that takes practice and a great deal of effort at times. Putting words together to express a view or a feeling or a thought makes me realize a great many things, uncovering some inner perspective that I never knew I had. It can be therapeutic, releasing pent up emotions that produce positive rewards. Do you like to write?

I love to write about certain topics. One of the things that I really enjoy writing about is pets and pet care. I own pets myself and I find it fun to share my experiences and advice with people about that topic.

What do you like to write about?

I've just started getting into writing over the past year and it has been a life changer for me. I never realized that I was actually good at it until someone read a short story that I wrote. Now I'm determined to write more about these characters that I've created to see where it takes me.

I use writing as a form of therapy, and I find it helps so much to relieve stress and work through problems that I'm having. Sometimes I journal or blog, and sometimes I create stories. Sometimes I write a letter to the person I am having a problem with.

I also enjoy writing and have been doing it since I was in my early teens. I started with writing poetry and that lead to short stories that I wrote in high school. I now write regularly and it is very therapeutic. When I have finished an article or a good piece of creative writing, it gives me a great sense of accomplishment.

I don't know about therapeutic, but I treat writing like reading a good King novel. It takes me out of this world and into another one.

This world is too much of a drag to fully commit.

I'm a writer, too, and I agree that it's very therapeutic. I find that when I start to write, time just stands still and satisfaction speeds up. This is something that I would pay to do, so it's just such a wonderful thing that I can actually make money doing the one thing that I absolutely love to do.

I do love to write. I also love to read. I wouldn't want to be paid to write though. I think it might take the fun out of it. I do enjoy it though.
