A Straw-Debate With a Writer - Writing: Is It Good or Bad For You?

by Cindy R. Williams

Writing, is it good or bad for you?

This is a straw-debate, which means it is an unofficial debate or sample debate of the good's and the bad's of writing according to one writer . . . me.

Good:  You get to tell your story in your own words.

Bad:  Many may not like your story and criticize it.

Good:  You have the opportunity to share good values with the world.

Bad:  You will not sell many books if you avoid the worldly view of things.

Good:  You sleep well for sharing things of worth.

Bad:  You lose sleep worrying that you will never reach the audience that your works could help.

Good:  You have dreams of being rich and famous some day.

Bad:  Being rich and famous some day is like lightning striking.

Good:  No one breathing over your shoulder when you write.

Bad:  You write alone, and it is sometimes a long lonely journey.

Good:  You have been given a gift and it is a great thing to hone and develop it.

Bad:  Nothing bad about the prior comment.

Add your two cents to the straw-debate via your comments.

  1. Good: you feel you are using a talent God gave you in a positive way; bad, it takes up a lot of time you could spend doing service work.
