to tell you honestly guys, im the type of person who does not like to write a lot. i mean, way back on my high school days, my friends are so fond of writing letters to their friends, crushes, penpals and those stuff. but men not me. its not my cup of tea really. do you write a lot or are you fond of writing?

Hello, Yeah, I write a lot...on myLot.... lol. I really like writing. I always write what comes in my mind. I am quite candid when I am writing. It seems as if I am unleashing my mind and the writing space is the race course. This is the sole place where I let my mind wander restlessly. I kinda open up and get totally undisciplined. This is how I express myself. You know, sometimes I think I talk less than what I write. I love to write about life, relationships, computing and mathematics, but anything that looks interesting is worth writing about. I don't read books to prepare my writing. Most of my writings are the product of experiences that I've made in my life. Thanks for starting such an interesting discussion God bless you

Yes, I love creative writing. I've written a lot since 2006, and my writings can be found at many Blogs and writing sites. It's so engrossing it can take away pleasure from other activities; but the muse has to be there...some days, nothing comes out, and such days are numerous...then the clouds lift and I write again. The sense of relief is wonderful.

I like writing but I don't think I'm good at writing, particularly in English. Englis is not my mother language, but I need to control or master it. So I force myself to write in English as much as I can. Now I have a few writing websites that pay me for writing. so I always write articles that I can post on these sites. It's a good way to inspire me to continue. practice will make perfect. I don't expect perfection but I do my best.

I don't physically write anymore. But I used to. I type everything now. But, I do find it a nice way to decompress because my keyboard gets the abuse from my feelings. Which is a much more healthy way to deal with situations then lashing out r doing something harmful to myself or others. Its more of a hobbie then anything though.

I wouldn't say I am fond of writing, but I think I have the gift, or more or less the curse. In high school, I chose a journalism class because I thought it was easier than the other electives. As it turns out, the class just required us to regularly write articles. I had no problems with it. When I started working, I always ended up writing Operating Procedures. It was lawyer-like language, but I had no problems with it. Even now, my boss has tasked me to make all the correspondence to suppliers because he thinks I'm good with words.

I love to write! If I can write whatever I want to write, that is. :) I have a hard time writing letters - and sometimes, even emails - and right now I have an email I should be replying to that has been sitting in my inbox for days.

Hi carrine, yes, I am fond of writing. I just like putting my thoughts on paper, or, electronically, typing my thoughts onto the computer screen. I guess this began since I was young, when I had the habit of writing diaries. Later on in school, composition writing became one of my favorites. I am now trying out some writing sites to see how well I fare. I may even contemplate writing a book in future.

hi carrine! this is one frustration of mine. to write! im not good with words nor with creativity into writing. i have always been wanting to write a poem on my own but i find it hard to juggle and construct words to rhyme per lines i state on. i guess all i need is practice and widen more my vocabulary to be able to write a fruitful and meaningful poem or whatever style of writing i might engage in.

I would said i am fond of writing since from my school days. Through writing, i got to know many international friends who are at first are my pen-pals. We exchange knowledge and share stories together. When we got to know about internet, we started to send email to each other, and thus save money on buying stamps and paper, as well as envelopes. I think if i am not fond of writing, i had missed out a lot of chance to get to know international friends and exchange stamps and money with them.
