V is for Value

What defines value?

For writers, this is a question we must ask frequently. How do we write things that will have value for our readers?

Value can mean many things. There’s literary value, popular value, sentimental value, monetary value. Some of these matter more to some writers than others. Some of us just want to write to make ourselves happy, and to share our work with a few friends and family members. Some of want to write something that’s timeless, that could go intio the canon of literature, something that will be read by classrooms. Some of us look forward to the day we can see our work on a “Best” list. And then some of just want to make a living off of our writing. And then, for some of us, it’s combination of all of these, with a few other motivations thrown in.

But at the end of the day, most of us just want to write something that others can appreciate. We want to add value.

What kind of value do you want to add to the world with your writing?

Also, I’m taking suggestions for topics for the last couple of days of the challenge. I have a few ideas in mind, but W, X, Y, Z, aren’t the most popular letters in the English language. Toss out a suggestion, I might go for it!
