I Love Writing!


When I’m starting a new story and getting to know my characters, I love writing.

When I’m in the middle of my story, trying to keep the tension and conflict going, I love writing.

When I’m near the end of my story and see it all come together, I love writing.

When I’m adding “meat” to my story to give it more emotion, I love writing.

When I’m chopping the hell out of my story to fix a major plot hole, I love writing.

When I’m polishing my story to a fine shine, I love writing.

And when I manage to find someone who loves my story as much as I do, I REALLY love writing.

I love writing!

What do you love?

That is awesome! I love writing, too. (Not all of the aspects of it, maybe, but I do love it.)

It's so great to love what you do, isn't it? As hard as it can be sometimes, yes, I love writing, too.

Stacy McKitrick said...

B.E. - You do love all aspects of it. Don't we often gripe about the things we LOVE? :)

Jeff - I might have come into writing late, but it found me at a time when I think I needed it the most. I'm just so happy it found me!!

I love writing, as well. It's so much fun, and I dig all the different puzzles of it. Good stuff.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Ivy - I guess my story is a bit of a puzzle, and I did love putting those together when I was a kid. Now the puzzle is in my head and I put it together as I write it down, don't I?

Jen B said...

Great post! I love writing too - getting through the tough stuff is so satisfying.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Jen - That it is, and I have to keep remembering that when other stuff tries to drag me down.

The Happy Whisk said...

Yeah, for sure. I mean we have to put all these bits together, they have to make sense to others and then there's all different stages.

It's the best.

Well, aren't you in a good mood!

I love opening my eyes every morning and thinking, Oh, good. I'm still here. :)

Stacy McKitrick said...

Maria - That's a good thing to love!

Jennette Marie Powell said...

I love writing when it all works out the way you describe! Unfortunately, it seldom all comes together quite so easily for me... but the characters won't shut up, and I love it enough of the time so I keep writing.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Jennette - I love it when my characters won't shut up. Unless, of course, I need to sleep. Then I might mind. :)

Jennifer Shirk said...

I'm not feeling the love now. Writing-wise. LOL

I love the way I feel and look right now though. :)

Stacy McKitrick said...

Jennifer - It's good that you love your body. I need to get some of that! :)

I love photography. As I am working on my story, I also find the excitement. Even if I have to re-wrok the set, it is exciting to see what will happen in the end.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Hi Lady Lilith! I loved photography. Even have a degree in it. Eventually I ended up losing the passion, making me wonder if I ever really had it or if I had used photography as an escape. Probably a lot of the latter! Thanks for visiting!!
