When I write for school, I love to but writing in my freetime feels like a task

I write. Only the lawyers, the needy, and the greedy ever read my contracts, when looking for a loophole to further their cause

I don't like to cross my social media lives. I'm a very opinionated conservative, and when I have done so in the past, I've gotten some malicious reviews by butthurt "social justice warriors". I can PM you if you'd like.

Sure! Thanks. Love me a good fantasy novel, regardless of the author or his/her opinions.

I do, as long as I get to pick the subject, length, and style.

Yeah. I always keep a notebook of short stories, poems, rambles, and whatever else.

No, but I do a lot of day dreaming. That covers my imaginative needs for the day.

Political satire. But because of school/ ambiguous grading on essays and such, I rather dread most writting.

I write a ton of non-fiction. Writing is not a pleasure outlet for me...

Mostly I agree with Jonfrei. It can be hard to write, but I like having written...(might be more a sense of relief than enjoyment).
There are times when an idea is busting to get out of my brain and putting it to paper is a happy experience.

I have been working on a book, which has been almost pleasurable, but my day-to-day reports (especially crash reports!) are just a pain in the backside -- the price of doing the rest of the job, I guess...

Is your CRASH report anything like the WENUS" (Weekly Estimated Net Usage Systems), or the "ANUS" (Annual Net Usage Statistics)?

No - crash as in automobile crashes. Given that I work the overnight shift (10p-8a), they are generally accompanied with a DUI arrest & the additional report that generates...

I understand how your CRASH reports would be depressing.

Short stories and some poetry. Goal is to do series of novella.
