What Makes You a Writer?

So, I was lying in bed last night. Thinking.

And, this thought whipped through my mind: What makes you a writer?

Writing makes you a writer.

Write in your journal.

Write in your blog

Write on a scrap piece of paper or a napkin at the coffee shop.

Just write.

Writers know in their hearts that they are writers. We don’t have to be published. We don’t have to be famous — although we do dream of both.

But, we have to write. It’s a craving. An incessant picking at our spirit. An itch that must be scratch. When you are a writer, you write. You have to write. You must write.

Because it is who we are. It’s who God created us to be.

Be who you are today. Write that poem! Write that first line. Just write.

Your spirit will thank you for it.

May God fill you with His peace today.


Sharing the Old to Make Things New

Look what I found tonight…


I was shocked actually. LOL And, more so since I’ve been looking for these writings for a while now. They’ve been churning in my spirit. My past life as a writer before I stopped to be a mom. I need to share that with you, too!

But for today, I wanted to share my past life with you to make room for the new. New things. New times. New writings. I am excited to be in this place. This place of newness and hope and faith and writing without using the delete button.

Well, maybe I’ll use it a little. Ok, a lot. But, that’s okay.

That’s writing.

Be blessed!
