What is your favorite part about writing?

It's national month of "do that creative thing you keep meaning to do" as far as I can tell. I think novel-writing came first, then drawing. BlogHer is hopping on the band wagon with NaBloPoMo. They're posting a prompt for their bloggers each day. I guess I'll try this a bit. No promises about a post every day or anything, though.

So, what is my favorite part about writing? Maybe that the process of writing down my thoughts in complete sentences helps me understand them in a new way. This is especially true of writing stuff out with pen on paper, but even here at the keyboard I tend to gain new insights and clarity. ''

Sometimes I hope my blog will somehow bring me fame and fortune. Sure, that'd be nice, but I don't write nearly enough for that (not to mention writing *well* enough!).

Does this have anything to do with testing? Oh, I could probably make some tortured analogy, but no. I won't. My goal in writing this blog post is just to write something, to exercise a muscle that I might need soon to write about testing.
