Why Do You Write?

Someone might ask, "Why do you write?" and you in turn might ask, "Why do you breathe or why do you eat?".

We write because we have to, because if we don't and the words or thoughts stay inside, unexpressed, then we are restless and dissatisfied with ourselves.

We write in response to what we see going on about us in the real world and what we imagine happens in a fantasy world of our own creation.

Sometimes the things we write are full of fluff and meant to bring only a smile or the sharing of a silly moment. Sometimes the words we write are deep, full of sentiment and truth, words meant to share the pain of living.

But mostly the things we write are just "us"..outward expressions of our inner selves. At times we write for others and are elated by our successes and occasionally we are deflated by our failures.

Regardless of all this, we continue writing and as I look around I see fellow writers who share my passion for words and thoughts that just have to be expressed in written form.

My prayer for each of you is that you would know the joy of being a writer in progress, and that each new story, poem, journal entry, letter or manuscript would find you looking in the mirror and smiling at your reflection.

You may not see someone whose work will appear on the bestseller's list or be recommended by Oprah, but you will see someone to whom God gave a special gift, the gift of words.

Use them well..use them wisely..but whatever you do.. USE THEM!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

You have touched my heart. I am 'early' into sharing publically my prized efforts at writing and so face a raft of doubts, etc. Your words held real encouragement - a reminder of what it's all about... "God's gift of words" and the compelling need to share from that place within. I have referred to myself many times as "the voice of one" - believing that God Himself has those of us with a passion to be heard - calls upon us to "cry out" to the issues and the many 'things' of life! Thank you - for the article - and for being a "voice"!

I feel led to share the lessons of faith and life and the beauty of the timeless words of GOD and Christ. If this encourages, gives hope, lifts someone's Spirit; then I am doubly blessed and grateful!!

Thanks for this. I try to write about everyday concerns and the very thoughts which is the essence of my self with deep inner thoughts. Thanks for sharing.
