A lot of the time, we write and don’t really consider what motivates us, so I wanted to use this post as a thank you to all the followers I have and everyone who comments or likes my posts! 😀
Writing–anything, including blog posts and stories–is fun by itself, but the best motivation really comes from those reading. I remember making a story in Wattpad a long time ago, and I felt like the story was okay. But when I saw the first comment on that story, I was extremely happy and continued writing mainly for that one person.
I used to write tons of random stories in middle school, but I would try to hide whenever anyone tried reading my pages and pages of writing–including my best friend. I didn’t know that a class full of supporters motivated me so much to write until I basically dropped writing that story when I left my middle school. I didn’t know that having someone to vent to throughout the writing process was so important until I talked off my sister’s ear about issues in a work in progress. And I didn’t know how much it meant when my best friend said she would always be my “number one fan”, even if there’s no one else reading, until she moved away.
So, here’s my thanks to every follower, commenter, liker, and random reader. Without you, I don’t think I would have much motivation. 😀
