What drives me to write? What's in my heart- and that's God. Most of my poetry, lyrics & music are based upon my faith, my love for God, and events that happen to others or myself. I'm kind of like an 'emotional sponge'. I feel for all of humanity and sometimes, when it gets to be a bit much to keep inside, I write to let it out. Especially poetry and lyrics- more than a manuscript or short story. When I get a comment in my guestbook that I've somehow touched someone, I thank God and it literally makes my day. It takes my mind of some of the 'trivial' things I allow to bother me, and I give thanks, instead. When I was a singer, I sang to reach others. The same applies to my writing. It's all about connection through expression. I've been stunned & humbled when someone from another part of the world visits my site because they got one of the ecards I wrote and were moved enough to tell me about it. The Internet is an amazing platform for all of us, as writers, to do so much good in the world- in His name.
God Bless and thank you for reading.
