Have you always liked to write?

Have you always liked to write? Me, not so much. In fact, I hated writing when I was in school. Even in college, I did not really enjoy it. It just seemed like such a long, drawn-out process to me. Researching stuff and then putting it into my own words. How boring.

I am not really sure what changed. One day, I just started writing and started offering my services to others. And since then, I have been doing all sorts of content creation besides doing my full-time job. What changed, I do not know. But I am glad that something did change. Now when I write, I get this huge sense of self-accomplishment. Even if I am ghostwriting, I still feel good about what I wrote.

Fifteen years ago, I would have laughed at anyone that said I would be writing at this point in my life. Boy, I am glad that something changed within me and I started. I could not imagine my life without freelance writing at this point, and see myself doing it for many years to come.

Personally, I cultivated the habit of writing when I was still a a kid because of how my parents trained me up. I grew up enjoying how to write about anything.

When I took to social media too, I carried out lots of writing as well but recently I joined the team of freelancer writers and make money as well.

I was a late bloomer as a kid and as a teen. It felt like I didn't knew what I wanted to do with my life for a lot longer than my peers but one thing that was evident even as a child was that I loved stories. It started as my grandfather used to tell me stories as a kid to help me sleep and from there I got hooked on TV shows and movies then into books when I was old enough to understand most topics. The itch to write really showed when I was in college, I joined a band and I tried to write lyrics for songs but always wanted to say "more", so I started to write stories for myself and eventually shared it with others.

Well, that is very true we do change at various points in our life and we dont even realise that sometimes.In my case i have always liked to write and express my feelings on paper. However when i was in the school and college i was a bit lazy about writing stuff on paper as it used to take a lot of time and was definitely a very slow process. Once i started using my computer i resumed my hobby of writing as it was more easy to type words than writing them Have you always liked to write?

I was a book reader when I was younger but I didn't have that dream to be a writer. What brought me to writing was my journey in the internet for sites that could help me improve my written English. That was years ago when I was assigned in the office to handle the communications of our department. My boss suggested that I take a writing course but Instead it was the writing sites that got my interest.

I too was a book reader when I was younger. In fact, I still love to read both books and on my kindle. I think that it is great that your journey to improve your English is what brought you to writing. It is just amazing how things like that work out. I wish you the best of luck with your writing, Corzhens!

I was an avid book reader back then myself. I still actually am. I think reading helped me a lot with my writing. It also broadened my imagination. I think reading and writing goes hand in hand. Someone who reads and absorbs information will always make a good writer if they tried.

I can agree I was more of a book reader because I wanted to learn new vocabularies and how to use them I was lazy to write until my high school teachers had to force me to do better with writing which I'm happy she did.

When I write I am happy. I always visualize what I am discussing and keep shaping the content to be addictive as possible for the readers.

I think that's good that you enjoy to write. Because your feelings reflect yo what you write. And I think it would be catchy if your content is lively and happy to read.

Yes, you are right. A reader will feel what the writer feels. A reader can easily tell if the writer is passionate about his craft based on the words, the thought and how he delivers it.

Yep. Very true. When someone writes without having put all their efforts in it is boring to the readers. I can feel it too anytime I read anything.

I've always loved to write, but not in the creative writing, or write an article kind of way. That only started when I was eleven years old. That's when I wrote my first poem. From there, it became a thing I kept on doing, and I still do a this point. Reading your post made me reminisce on some of the old stuff I wrote from when I first started writing creatively. I'll do well to check them out again some time soon.

I like to write only about topic which I am dear about. Unless I have read and researched about a topic, I will not comment about it if it is not something that I know. This is because without much research and reading, the write up will not be interesting to the public and that kills the purpose of writing. Although I love writing, I am little bit picky.

This is how it should be,I hate to struggle with some topics when I can write freely on other topics. We can only write our best with mostly only topics we are knowledgeable about.

Have I always liked to write? Not really. I liked numbers better. But one of my teachers told me I had a talent for writing and that I should try to develop it. I took her advice. It came in handy too! I ended up at a job where I had to do a lot of writing. Ask me if I like writing now. The answer is Yes.

Wow. I always envy people who have talents in both numbers and words. I woul feel very happy if I excel in both. Well, I try to improve myself, but, I am not in "that" level yet.

Set yourself realistic goals to be achieved within a realistic timetable and then ... GO FOR IT!

I think so. At first it was hard. The actual act of writing something with your hand was somewhat difficult for a child. But then you learn how to do it. I practiced by writing the letters of the alphabet. Then, I moved on to writing words while reading the dictionary.

Basically, I learned to write by doing the hard work. Though, the part I don't enjoy is the slight numbing sensation you get after writing by hand for an extended period of time.

I was fond of English from my school days and I have always found the language to be interesting. People use it everywhere. Now, even people in the rural areas understand English and such has been it's penetration in the society. English was my favorite subject in school and I always used to write articles and participate in debates and discussions in English. I developed a liking for the language in my early days and it has grown ever since. Now, I love to read and write in English, I have a good collection of novels and I make sure I contribute towards writing whenever I find time.

It’s been my passion for as long as I can remember. I had penpals ever since I was young and I was first inspired by writing letters. That grew into story writing and then more journalistic article writing. I’m just glad that I can earn a living doing something I love so much.

I started reading story books when I was still very young and I suppose that is one of the reasons why I fell in love with writing afterwards.

When I was a teenager and couldn't find many interesting books to read, I would write stories which I'd read afterwards. Something changed however around 2013 when I started hating fiction writing and though I didn't like writing any non-fiction stuff at that time, I started to like it the more I did it, out of necessity at first, but eventually I ended up liking it too.

I started writing at a young age. I think I was 9 then. I started out writing short stories on my school pads, then later on in my High School years I started writing poems which then became songs. I loved writing songs, I still have the ones I wrote here. I did hate writing articles and essays back then, but right now here I am doing what I hated. LOL! I still hate it don't get me wrong but there's satisfaction in finishing a job and learning new things.

Writing is my Passion so yes, I've always enjoyed writing. Writing is a way for you to voice out your own opinions and way of thinking that you would not normally do if you're not given a chance. But in writing, you get to have the chance to be open about what you think and it's like you are important. Your opinion, ideas and thoughts are becoming important in a way. You get heard. People who read your contents get to know your thoughts, your opinions, your ideas. Through writing, you can also open people's minds about certain things or topics. You can influence people through writing.

I wasn't really a writer before now.i was more of a reader. It seem my English teacher saw the potential in me and was almost forcing me to learn and love writing I never knew I could even make money off it. I'm glad I was persuaded to learn.

I was not always a writer. Like @Enyi I was more of reader and liked to read more than I liked to write.However I realized that reading is pretty good way of expressing yourself. Writing can get rid of alot of your stress. Most psychologists that I know recommend writing as a way to keep mentally healthy. One day as I was looking for ways to earn online I came across writing, and I've never ever looked back since then.

Same with me. I started with reading and then later developed my love for writing. I also agree that writing can help your mental health and can even widen your knowledge, because through writing, you'll get curious about things, thus, you want to do researching.

I think that I would always love to write because it is one of my interest and passion, it is very easy to be motivated if we really like what we are doing. Most of the time I am writing because it makes me feel happy and sometimes helps me also to earn a few pennies from it.

It never crossed my mind to be a writer. But I find myself writing my own story and comic book when I was a kid.

During highschool and college days, writing is not my favorite subject but I was able to get good scores. I am guessing it is because I am not really much of a talker so I have a lot of things going on inside my mind and writing became an outlet.

It was only when I was offered a freelance writing job when I realized that I can do this.

I honestly hate writing when I was young. I considered it tedious and boring. But, when I went to college, I started this habit of watching a movie adaptation and then reading the book afterwards. That kind of cycle, it really helped me build my imagination and widen the range of my vocabulary unlike before. Because of that, I tried writing poems first, then I felt the urge to write more and learned to love it. The process was actually overwhelming and the feeling is nice.

I have never really thought about it. I guess I have really enjoyed writing since I was kid. I was never the sporty type and I like to be kept alone. I usually draw back then, but then at one point we were asked to make a story. Since then I enjoyed expressing myself with words and sketches.

Have you always like to write: In my case since writing is not really my priority as of now, it didn't exhaust me really because i do write when ideas come in my mind and do write it down in my free time. It is one of my daily routine to have someting to add in my works untill i finish it. I didn't pressure my self doing this.

Same as me. I don't like writing before not because I hate it. It is because I find it difficult to do so and I know it requires a lot of skill and practice. I am a fan of those who are good in writing but I've never been good at it. I am still working on my skills but I have more guts now compared before.
