Everyday Inspiration, Day One: I Write Because…

Writing is how I process my life, a lot of times I don’t quite know how I feel about something until I start writing about it. It helps me make sense of my chaotic mind.


I write because…

It connects me to the world around me. Ever since before I could read I have been obsessed with stories of people’s lives. The love, heartbreak, ups, and downs that mark us and make us individuals but also unite us. The written word is how these human experiences can be shared with the masses. So someone I don’t know and will never meet can share their story with me and I can share my story with them and we can share that bond. And through this bond we can learn something new or find a fresh perspective on something old. Maybe your experience will help me in my life, maybe we’re two of a kind.

Writing is how I process my life, a lot of times I don’t quite know how I feel about something until I start writing about it. It helps me make sense of my chaotic mind.

I love words. I love how words can make us feel something, whether it’s good or bad. I love how a person can string the right words together in just right the way and transport me to another time and place.

It’s my gift. God gives us gifts because he wants us to them. My goal in life is to make the most of everything God has given me.

  1. I know what you mean about processing your life through writing… It works the same way for me; I can clarify my thoughts and vague ideas as I’m writing them. If I just think about something, I often find I’m just going round in circles. I blog about books and writing what I think of a book not only makes sense of it, it also makes them more memorable!

      1. It’s not a classic book review site although I do write the occasional inspired review. 🙂 But it’s also about the questions books raise and other book related thoughts…


  2. I agree… writing helps me to clarify my life. I am amazed when I read something from long ago at how much I have changed. Yet, that person is still a part of me. Very good post!
