When the mood strikes, it’s time to hit the keyboard.
Sometimes you just feel like writing for Triond. It’s not about the number of view you might get or the money, you’re just in the mood. Sometimes you don’t even have anything in particular you want to say or write about, but you feel like writing.
I write for a living. Many days I tap out more than 5,000 words, most of it fiction but some of it blog posts or Triond articles. One of the things I love about writing at Triond is the freedom. Oh, sure, in my fiction I’m free to make up anything I want, but it takes thinking and planning. Also, it might take a few days or a week to finish a short story, and often it can take months to finish a novel, but with Triond I can write a little something and send it out to the world, receiving instant gratification.
That instant gratification can be important for a writer from time to time, but it can also be fun!
I used to give a lot of thought to my Triond articles, planning ahead a few days about what I wanted to write, doing research and the like. Nowadays I tend to write whatever comes into my head at any given moment, and honestly, my views have improved of late.
I think I’ve stumbled upon the notion that, for me, informational articles on Triond don’t bring in so many views. Such articles are covered elsewhere online already. But what I can bring to Triond is my own take on various topics, whether it be movies, travel, writing, or whatever. No one else can bring my particular viewpoint, and the same can be said for other writers.
One thing I have noticed is that it usually doesn’t work out for me to post more than one Triond article a day, so I try to stick with only one per day, despite the fact I’m breaking this rule right now. But hey, I just felt like writing!
Why does more than one article a day not work out for me? Well, I’m not exactly sure, but I have noticed that when I publish more than one a day the earlier articles tend to not get as many views. Maybe it’s because the earlier articles get pushed down off the News Feed on other Triond users’ Dashboard.
But again, the number of views is not necessarily the reason I write, though it is interesting, fun and hopeful to see those views.
I hope other writers at Triond find as much enjoyment from the site as myself.
