Writing has been my favorite hobby since my school years, and I still do that whenever I have the chance. It is also a way of earning some extra money while enjoying the hobby. I have joined a number of online writing sites for that. Do you like writing ? Are you writing online or in other medias ?

I enjoy writing articles and reviews online, I'm mainly concentrating on them for now and my fan fiction has gone to the wayside at the moment because I like making money more than my fun fanfic hobby.

I love writing, and I write poems and short stories. I have posted some of my poems on Danish writing sites (I usually write in Danish) but I am only a member of a few international writing sites. I like to participate in discussions and things like that, but I have never written articles or reviews in English. Maybe I will try that one day, but right now I am trying to finish my collection of poems and short stories, and when I finish I will try to get some of it published.

I do love to write, i have been writing for another site for a time now. But there are times that i can't find the time to write and i can't find interesting topics to write about. I do write short stories and blogs on another site.

I really like to write, too. I sometimes have overflowing topics on what to write about, however sometimes, time is the issue. I have a regular job and it is very time demanding. So, as a result, I would lose that great idea that I was thinking about for days. I write because I enjoy doing it. Second reason is of course the potential income I can earn out of my works. I cannot deny the fact that I also need extra money and this is the best way I can do it nowadays.

I love writing. It's one of my passions in life. I have always dreamed of becoming the next big thing when it comes to writing. I have been writing for Triond for quite sometime. I am also doing writing jobs and ghost writing for a few private individuals. Writing is a very lucrative career once you get that one big break. Hopefully I will get my break in writing soon. I would really want to stop in my day job and concentrate more on writing. This is the career I would like to pursue until I grow old.

I would have a different answer if you asked me more than once. There are days that I love writing. I can't seem to stop. Whether it's my fanfiction or articles that I am writing. This may last for days or even weeks. Then out of nowhere, I lose my train of thought. All of the sudden, my fingers are stilled and my mind goes blank. I cannot continue my story or write any more articles. I feel brain -blocked. And frustrated. Very frustrated - especially when people are sending me emails telling me how much they are enjoying my story and when will I be writing the next chapter? When indeed. Many people in the fan fiction genre call your writing imagination your muse. They have teased me several times about my muse falling asleep and offering me virtual cookies and things to get it going again. For the most part, I love writing and can usually go with the flow. However, if I am worried about something, if someone I love is sick - real life issues raise their heads - then I can't write to save my life. Although I have many friends who seem to write better when they are worried - they say it seems to calm them. I guess each to his own, huh?

I like to write in many different ways. I've been writing online for money for probably two years now and it's gotten to the point where I don't really enjoy it, for the most part, unless I find something that I find particularly interesting to write about. Sometimes I have to force myself to write about something boring just to get the money and that takes the fun out of it. I do enjoy creative writing for fun, though. Fiction, of course, because I wouldn't be any good at non-fiction. xD

I write articles for pay when I can make myself do it. I prefer to write fiction, and have been serializing some of my writing on my blog. Right now, I should be writing some articles for Associated Content, but I don't really enjoy it at all, so I have to force myself to do it. I've written for other sites and gave up on it because I hated it so much, especially anything that had to do with the current news. The only thing that keeps me at it at all is the need for extra income, and even that's not a good enough motivator most of the time.
