I'm in! And still learning... Who said 'Stagnation is death?'
I love it when people get right to the point. Still in.
Of course! I love your blogger picture! So peaceful and pretty.
Concise and to the point...and so true. Many creative people could not live any other way
Hi Karen - still around ... what a great post .. and I love the quotes ... cheers Hilary
I don't have to "become a writer." I am a writer because I write.
Still in but not sure why!
Yep, I'm still in :-)
Nothing like incintive :)
I'm still in, even though sometimes it's tough to hold on; I just read an award-winning, published story that plagiarized another story, and it made me mad that my writing is rejected while "writers" steal other people's work and win awards for it. But on the other hand, it motivated me to keep writing and show thieves like them what it means to take credit for my own work, not someone else's.
Nice one Karen. As you know from visiting my blog, I'm feeling the pain, but it is still euphoric pain--oxymoron but that's how I feel. I like the sound of I'm Afraid of Everything. Can't wait to read it.
Yeah - I think it's that way with all arty forms.
YOU BET!!!!!We are creative souls, Karen... It's the air that we breath. Without it we will whither and die...
Sounds great to me!
Yep, I have to write. It's required. :)
Can't seem to stop!
I'm still in! : )
Not in at all, being an uncreative soul myself, but here to wish you very well with letting 'Afraid of Everything' go, and intrigued by the comfort of a coma. I hope the book will do you proud.
I liked the quotes. I have always been writing, all my life. I even did it professionally, as a technical writer at UCLA for the last years I worked there. I never thought that anyone else would like to read what I wrote. Then I started to blog, and I never thought about it until now, but people do read it and seem to enjoy it. How about that? Thanks Karen for putting a different perspective on my blogging.
Oh yeah! Still in, through thick and thin. Hope to continue for many years.
NO KIDDING! It's so insane. Before you ever start, you think, "Yeah, I can do this on the side. Not a big deal!" HAH!! Unleashing the Dreamworld
Yep, still in, but writing isn't gonna take up 2/3 of MY lifetime! (I got a late start...)
Writing is the sanity I need. I have written all my life. Now, as a grandma and retired, I won't be pushing out to publish. I will just enjoy reading those who dare and supporting those climbing the ladder.
My next book is being released on Nov. 5th. Then I'm scaling back for the holidays. I like to write, I want to improve my writing. What bothers me is the social media is like a full time job. I dislike self-promoting!
Boy is this true, Karen. I don't know why, but I'm still in. I wish all writers luck and creativity. Go for it!
I am SO in! Now is the time. Going back to school best decision of my life (along with four other "best" decisions). I have deadlines, assignments, workshops, I am being forced to write every single day. I am exhausted and so so happy.
Dear Karen, I'm still working on both. I'm trying to develop a style of writing and I'm editing all I do. In fact, starting tomorrow I'll begin to edit the 70,000-word first draft of my convent memoir. It's the roughest draft I've ever done and so I've got my work cut out for me. Peace.
Yup. I'm in it forever, and I look forward to getting better and better the more I write.
It's definitely a lifestyle. It's one that I ignored for awhile, but it tracked me down anyway.
LOVE this! Yes, I'm still in. And with a smile :)
Of course I'm still in! :)www.modernworld4.blogspot.com
I'm all in!
Simply put, but it's the essence of what we do. I'm ready for the ride!
I'm still not sure! I just don't have the time and I love what I'm doing now.
