I think that writing stories can be really enjoyable and can expand my imagination. I think that writing is one way to enjoy life. I feel happy to see my writing which I can draw from my past experiences. Travel is one of my interests and different destinations can feature in my stories. Do you like to write stories? Does writing help you to enjoy your life?

I also write stories and since I started to write it I feel very good with myself, I can write whatever I feel to, and it is important also to express oneself, I imagine many things, and then I put them in my writings.I see life differently maybe more beautiful and I give importance to every little things in life also.

Hi there Med, I love what you have written concering this post so I felt it only fair to give you this compliment. You are really beginning to open up my eyes concerning writing. I had no idea of the importance of writing and it's all available, right at the touch of our fingertips and our brains. Yes I truly believe that once we begin writing, we can gain a whole new perspective on the world. You are so right med889. Life does seem more beautiful when we write. Take care, keep writing and please add me as a friend, if you haven't already done so. Thanks in advance! I would be honored to be your friend!

I have enjoyed writing since I was a very little girl many many years ago and wrote a short 5-6 sentence story about a skunk. I write often and have had some poetry published. I write for Gather.com and Xomba.com and Triond.com and some others. 1000 things to do in Spokane. I write short stories, children stories and other things. I like writing.

I like it very much too. I write for Associated Content and Yuwie but I haven't been to either or those sites in ages. Perhaps this weekend I will get over there to visit with some of my old friends there. Sometimes I find that i don't like the idea of having to maneuver my way around new websites. I wouldn't want to waste a lot of my time there if they aren't making the pay worthwhile. Anyhow, I would love to read about your skunk story one day. I hear that it's very beautiful over in Spokane. My O.Sister used to live there many years ago. When I went there to visit her, it seemed like a peaceful sort of place. I kind of thought to myself that I wouldn't mind living there. But I think all the rain would start to get to me after a while. Not to mention some of those wild little animals that I've been hearing about. My friend told that some of them will come right out on her walking trail. She said that there were raccoons that would come out at night and try to attack as she'd be going up to her place. I sure hope they haven't bitten her or tried to eat her up. It's funny, that no matter how bad we might try to act. When it comes to wild animals, we always have to take a step back, hee hee hee! Have a nice day my friend. Be careful over there. Blessings! CC!

I love writing, but I don't do it as much now as I was and I honestly really miss it. I graduated from the Institute of Children's Literature in 2007 and loved it. I write mostly for preschool age and young adult readers, but I was also working on some articles directed towards teens. As a preschool teacher, it felt so natural to write for kids and I know firsthand what kids like to read. It's really enjoyable. I hope that I can get some more articles and stories finished before my baby comes because I know I'll be busy then.

I too really enjoy writing stories. I find that it's really pleasurable to do, and I find that it's a form a therapy, or it can be for some. In my case, I find that writing is a form of therapy. It's something that I've enjoyed doing ever since I was a kid. I don't know how it started, but one day, I had an idea for a story and I just decided to write it. And I've been writing ever since. That's how it all started.

I love to write stories as well. Always did ever since I learned how to write. I was always writing this story or other :) I don't really keep a journal, like some people do, but sometime I feel like writing about what's happening in my life. Most times I prefer to write fiction or stories for kids - specially stories that can help my students learn something in a more fun way. I am not sure if my writing helps me to enjoy my life, other than the fact that it gives me pleasure to write it at the time, and sometimes to read it later.

I enjoy writing stories.......... Hellol Maximax8, I really do enjoy writing, I was just now starting a discussion on it. I had no idea that you'd already started one as well. Oh well at least our topics are different, hee hee! Anyways, I don't know what I would be doing if I weren't writing. I'd probably be sitting somewhere bored out of my mind, lols. Or perhaps Singing. But writing is so wonderful, it give us the freedom to be able to express our thoughts clearly and concisely. Then once we put it down on paper. Or on the computer and we go back and edit, Oh my! What an impressive piece of work we have. I simply love the way you have the beautiful background on your avatar. As well as the way that you speak about travel. It all just seems to fit so nicely all in there together. You make me want to start packing my bags right now girlfriend, hee hee! Anyhow I just wanted to pay you a compliment and let you know that I think you're over there doing a very find job. Please add me as a friend. thanx in advance. Have a nice day. CC!

I love writing, but haven't done any for a while - the unfinished novel is still sitting here. I have a blog, but I haven't even written on that for a couple of months. Too much going on at the moment on the home front - but I hope to get back into it soon.

I like both reading and writing stories. But writing is really a tough thing, especially for those perfection-pursuing people like me. The feelings that my words fail to express my mind always depress me. Several weeks ago I decided to write a stories based on my college life, but completely lost my patience after squeezing out no more than 2000 words. I hate to admit I am loser in writing.

I tried to write a science fiction story when I was in high school. But due to many reasons, I gave it up. In fact I like writing, but I am not sure whether I can do it well in the reality. Besides, writing needs the time. I know you have a baby daughter right now. When she grows up a little bit, you will start to tell her story before she goes to bed. If you don't want to read by books, you can create a story by yourself. And perhaps it will give you many ideas to write a book. Some parents told their children stories that they created. And later they realized the story was fantastic and they wrote it down. They become to be writers like this way. I love China

As you may, or may not know max, I have written a novel, albeit unpublished, and although it was ficticious, I drew a lot on my travel experience, as well as life experiences when writing. Prior to that I had written some short stories. When they are completed, there is an amazing feeling of satisfaction, end enjoyment.

Writing stories can be enjoyable if your good at it and know what to write. Which I have always wanted to write a book but I dont have a good imagination I can think of ideas just dont know what the characters would say and stuff like that.

Writing to me is the best thing for relaxing. It not only enhances your creative side but gives you something that you can cherish all the time. I am writer too and I enjoy writing my day to day activities. I am also planning to write a novel which I hope will be ready next summer. I have never written a story but yes I do write poems. Hey maxi I want to read your piece of work, do send me the link of your story.

That is nice to hear someone who enjoy writing. When I was younger I enjoyed writing short stories. I got a couple of awards for my stories in school. I always said I will write a book. Then life got into the way. It is only now that I am starting to write again. I am not the same as I once was. Now I write for certain sites to get back into it. I see you have been here a while so you probable know a few good one. Add me as a friend and maybe we can share ideas.
