I always did the worst at english classes in school. It's kinda made me think that I am a poor writer. I've never actually written a story for fun. But recently, when I'm lying in bed at night, I've been thinking up stories. It's been really fun actually, and I want to write it all down. I haven't started, and I don't know if i'll ever get to it, but in the mean time I will just keep on deepening the story.

I think the fun part of writing is in imagining the story, not in actually writing it.

Never written a book but I like to write, it's fun.

Reading is also just as fun.

So I have to say both. Though I love being creative so, that's the kick I get out of it.

I also like playing with different sentence structures for fun. That's a blast because you can really convey emotions that way.

Trying to write a book can be painful. You must really love it to do it, else you just make a chapter or two and lose interest.

I have never written a book, I hated writing thanks to the boring essays I was forced to write in HS. I hate essays, hate writing....meh.

But I love reading

If you have a good knowledge base of what constitutes good literature (hint, hint) , writing would be more creative and potentially lucrative (if writing for profit, but also personal enrichment), but I'll go with reading because its likely that learning from other authors while expanding on your exposure to different writing styles and ideas can only enable you to become a better writer. You need to read first in order to write more often than not, but in the end its subjective to you which is more rewarding. Writing is creative so its potentially more rewarding from a linear standpoint.^^

Both are enjoyable but for very different reasons. When reading, you are discovering a world. When writing, you create it. Both have merit, but writing takes more effort on your part, so the satisfaction is greater. At the same time, the surprises and emotions that come from writing are weaker than when reading.

Both?

You can write your own universe. And in reading, you can escape into others.

Good writing actually takes talent and creativity, and knowing this, writing can never be enjoyable for me.
