Perhaps you write technical documents. In that case, you are looking to improve a process by clarifying it. This means change. Or maybe you write articles that provide readers with information they did not previously possess. More change. Copywriters want to change lookers into buyers. Grantwriters want to persuade people or organizations to support an endeavor they may have never heard of before. Business proposals are written withrepparttar hope of fostering improvements within companies.

Do you confine your writing solely to your journal, or specialize in first-person essays? What are you looking for when you write about yourself, your experiences, your observations? My guess is that you want to arrive at a more complete understanding of what you saw, lived through and felt. You want to grow fromrepparttar 129536 experience, or you want your readers to think about something in a way they might never have done before. Change.

This applies even to this article. I want to help writers discover repparttar 129537 real reason for writing, enable you to refocus your energies and perhaps become more prolific and successful by understanding why you do what you do. I hope I've succeeded in doing just that.

As a writer, you've got a talent that many do not possess, and many admire. So don't just sit there. Write for a change.
