This Week's Topic is: It's (the day before) Valentine's Day! Let's jumpstart the lovefest by blogging about what you love most about writing (and/or reading)!
What I love about reading: wanderlust-inducing settings and crazy new worlds. Reading something that makes you feel like someone has seen the inside of your head and put it in a book. Reading something that makes you laugh so hard you cry, or that makes you cry so hard you just have to laugh. Swoony book boys! And I especially love finding something that is so good that it makes me want to become a better writer.
What I love about writing: creating something out of nothing. Coming up with cool characters and developing them until they feel real. When you've been struggling with a scene or a plot point and then you get That Moment when everything clicks into place. Reading something back and thinking that hey, this actually doesn't suck! The best part of writing: connecting with other people who are doing the same crazy thing as you, getting to read their work, seeing them achieve great things, making awesome friends, and getting nothing but support from them. Cheesy Valentine's to you all :)
