NaBloPoMo 2011: Day 1

What is your favorite part about writing?

Writing is like sex.

NOW that I have your attention… What I mean to say is with sex, the more you have, the more you want. Likewise, the more I write, the more I write, well. I really like the sense that the more I write – the more I concentrate on the concepts and the act of getting the images, conversations, personalities, and situations down in words, the better I become at it.

The author is like the runner.

Running, like writing, is a solitary exercise. We all know that it is true, no matter how we like to connect with other writers via social media or meet for coffee, when it comes to the act of writing, it is a conversation we have with ourselves and we take notes. Like the runner, they run alone, and sometimes other people run alone with them. We write alone, hunched over our pads and pencils, laptops, and typewriters, as we make worlds, meet people, and listen in on their private conversations, and sometimes, other people come along for the ride.
