Reasons Why I Love Being A Writer

Writing isn’t easy. It’s hard work and can be unnecessarily frustrating at times. But I love it.

Here’s an example:
I’m sitting around on Tuesday killing time before covering a basketball game when I decide to jot down some thoughts for my next blog. It’s supposed to be pressure-free writing, but 20 minutes later I’m thinking, “Wow, I got nothin’!”

Just like that – yes, I’m about to be super cheesy – that song Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake starts blaring on the gym speakers. You know the one …

I got this feelin’ inside my bones. It goes electric, wavy when I turn it on. All through my city, all through my home. We’re flyin’ up, no ceilin’, when we in our zone.

I don’t know why, but those lyrics immediately made me think of the feeling I have when I sit down to write something – anything. It really is a feeling deep inside my bones, and it’s incredible to think I get to be a writer and editor for a living at Edit This®.

There are a million reasons why I love being a writer. For the sake of brevity, here are 20:

  1. I can write about anything, from anywhere.
  2. I am constantly learning something new.
  3. It’s a chance to tell someone’s story first.
  4. I can use my imagination.
  5. I love that moment when inspiration strikes.
  6. I love the journey to becoming a better writer.
  7. I can build relationships with total strangers.
  8. I can educate (writers, clients, students).
  9. I can share stories about my life and family.
  10. I am constantly meeting interesting people.
  11. I love that words are like puzzle pieces.
  12. Every day is a different writing opportunity.
  13. It’s a chance to research and use statistics.
  14. It’s a chance to refine a rough canvass.
  15. It’s just me and my computer.
  16. My clients value my ability to write.
  17. It’s a chance to bring joy to people’s lives.
  18. I have won cool awards along the way.
  19. I get to partner with other business owners.
  20. The finished product is worth writer’s block.

Thanks for reading! Are you a writer, too? What are some of the many reasons you love to write? And as always, if you are a small-business owner who needs help coming up with the right words to communicate effectively with your clients, give me a call. I like to say I handle anything involving the written word, from blogs to content writing for websites, press releases, editing, ghostwriting, resumes, newsletters, and more.

Many business owners don’t have the time to write or double-check their work. In some cases, they freely admit they are not good writers. This situation leads to mistakes in grammar or an important message that doesn’t come across the way they hoped it would.

In this day and age, business owners might say they can’t afford to hire a professional writer. We say you can’t afford not to.
