Every writer has a reason they write. There's a reason we spend countless hours all alone, head in hands, staring at our computer screens, countless days combing through ancient documents looking for what type of lace women adored their gloves with in the 18th century, a reason why we endure the scorn of bad reviews, sleepless nights when the characters in our heads refuse to shut up!, why we blog and facebook and tweet meaningless drivel in order to find new readers....
Is it for the fame, the glory, the money? (don't make me laugh!) Let's face it, most of us aren't Steven King or John Grisham, nor will we ever achieve their status. We write because there is something burning within us that must be set free, something we want to tell the world, something the world must know or it will be worse for its ignorance.
It doesn't have to necessarily spring from faith or religion. It could be a cause, a belief, a value that is so dear to you, it becomes your life's work to share it with others. Things such as the environment, the waste of war, the greed for power in government, the importance of family, loyalty, honor, love. It could be just the desire to provide an escape for your readers, give them hours of entertainment and put a smile on their face. It could be a need to provide hope in a hopeless world.
Whatever your reason for writing, it has been planted within you by God, and the world awaits your message! For me, I write to tell the world that there is hope because over 2000 years ago God became a man, suffered and died, so that we might live forever with Him in paradise! At Christmas, that message becomes all the more real to me as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.
The Reason we have Hope! (Enjoy!)
