Writing is an intellectual piece due to one's way of expressing any emotions.This is not a simple think as we usually think.Everyday i can only write two or thre topics. I use my own experiences and questions that bothered in my mind to have a possible solutions.How about you?What triggers you to write? I'll be happy to receive any respons from all of you my friend.

I write to express myself. Though I am not very good at this area, I love doing it because there are times that there are things I wanted to say but I just can not for some reason or another. If you said that this is not easy, well, perhaps it is true. There are times wherein you wanted to write about something but you just can't find the perfect words, or the perfect phrase for that particular thing that would result to be misunderstood at some point.

It's weird for me. I don't really have any motivation, except for when I write for university. Then I tell myself that I need to get good marks and praise myself with a little treat. But when I'm writing for myself, it just comes, I don't motivate myself with certain things... I just let things around me and my own thoughts inspire me.

Well usually it's the topic of the discussion that grabs my eye that inspires me to respond. I like interesting & stimulating topics, ones that make you think. I also like topics on other members every day lives. We get a glimpse into their world as they do w/ ours whenever we ourselves base a discussion on our own lives. Also sometimes when we need advice it's easier to take such advice from a stranger, one who can give us an honest opinion simply because of the fact that they are not personally involved.

I do agree with you that it is better to seek advice from stranger becasue they are honest.It is also because sometimes our friends and even our family members tried to protect us and give advice which is advantageous on our part even if sometimes it's not good.

I usually write when something is weighing heavy on my mind... or when something has happened that I want to tell people about... or if I find something I'm passionate about and have done enough research to write knowledgeably about the topic. I love to write. It helps me focus my thoughts that tend to get scattered. Writing, to me, is a lot like therapy, only cheaper!

Dear Daisy I must say you have posted a very searching view! It makes me think very hard about it? To tell you the naked truth, I am here to write to make money. Although the earnings may be small yet, patience will pay off. Trust me! I find physic happiness in so doing i.e. write, write and write. I have joined and contributed to sites like Triond,Bursia and others but have given the assurance to be paid once my quota is reached. On the other hand, everyone should write to share because sharing is caring. Writing to me is a good way to spend some quiet time at home and coffee shops. It's very soothing to me. That's my take for now. Hope it has helped you. OK? Thanks a million Love: Bro. Joe GBU.

I just enjoy immensely sharing my world of thoughts, opinions, creativity and own experience to share with my readers. I also get motivated greatly by the fact that I can make some money by writing. However, I must admit that if it were not for money probably I would not have written at many sites.

I really like to express my opinions and I also want to make some extra money to buy things I want so I took up writing reviews online.

Hi, I write to basically get an outlet to my feelings or thoughts. For instance, a lot of crimes have been taking place on women of late in my country. So I felt very strongly about this topic and went an wrote an article on it. I do not write daily but when some ideas build up inside my head, I will think on those lines for a few days and write an article on it. I agree with you that writing is not a simple thing. I write mostly on topics I am passionate about and interested in. I have found my niches in topics related to health and beauty, product reviews, women's issues and book reviews. I am currently working in two sites, Triond and Experts Column.

There are a variety of things that motivate me to write. Many of them come from within me. I have a lot of things that run through my head, and I use writing as an outlet to get some of those things off of my mind. Current event and sport related events are things that I enjoy writing about as well. I also enjoy doing reviews of movies and television shows. It just depends on what crosses my mind on a particular day, or what is currently going on in our world. Regardless of what I wrote about though, I enjoy it a lot. It's one of my favorite hobbies.

For me, most of the time I would say it is life experiences. What I am going thru at this time, or around me, and the world. It could be something I am wanting to happen or just a passing thought. Personally for me it really depends on my mood, and the amount of time I have to be able to share something. But as long as my writings are helping someone that makes it more worth while.

Dear Daisy_22 mylotter from Philippines, When you are strike by some incident, you right. When you generate an idea you right. When their is a Tsunami of thought in the mind you write. when you are influenced you write. If you need you write. When you express your self you write. Finally When you want to write, you write.

Hi, Perhaps because of my curiosity. It triggers me to write and compose particular topic. Sometimes a lot of questions keep playing on my mind and eager to receive response from all of my friends.

There are actually a lot of topics to write about but for me it takes more than just motivation to be able to write something. Inspiration for me is one, feelings and emotions can also be involved and so is the passion for writing. What I write may depend on the mood I'm in, like when I am happy, my happiness reflects in my writings. When I start to write, whatever and however I feel, the need to express it motivates me, and that is when the stream of thoughts starts to flow.

When I get real inspiration I can write but I am such a huge procrastinator most of the time. I would have a lot more articles and things out there if I didn't sit here being a procrastinator HAHA!
