X is for X Factor
Do you understand what separates you from every other non-writer?
Regardless of what scale you'd place your writing on, regardless of how many times you've tried to figure out why you write when so many normal people don't want to, or what you have that they don't ... it's simply the X Factor.
X Factor: noteworthy special talent or quality.
You, my dear writer, spend hours upon hours alone with a keyboard, creating characters, settings, and stories that have never been created in just that special way before. You share a piece of yourself with every scene you write.
But sometimes you forget just how special you are.
Repeat after me: I ... possess ... the ... X Factor.
Now, pat yourself on the back. Your imagination and effort has given readers more blissful moments than they could ever imagine.
