Writer Friends Challenge: Day 16 – Favorite Thing About Being a Writer

It’s Day 16 of the Writer Friends Challenge!

Day 16 – What’s your favorite thing about being a writer: There are a lot of things I love about my job, not the least of which is the fact that I get to tell all the stories that are swirling around in my head! I think at this point in my life, though, my favorite thing has to be the flexibility. While I do have a set schedule for my workday, I can move it around a bit to accommodate a sick kid who needs to stay home or an appointment I need to make. It’s not always easy to work from home, honestly, but I have to be grateful for those kinds of benefits!

  1. My favorite thing about writing is taking something so personal and making it into something that can entertain others in a meaningful way!

  2. I enjoy the flexibility too, though what I enjoy the most is people telling me that my stories resonated with them, especially my fiction—that’s always a great feeling. Anyway, thanks for this post!
