Love #10


This one had to come up sooner or later and I figure today's as good a day as any, though since you're reading my blog I assume you already know this about me.

I love to write. For some strange reason I can string words together on a page that make sense whereas what pops out of my mouth--not so much. I love creating my own worlds and creating inhabitants that live the lives I (literally) dream about. I love that all the make-believe things can seem so real there. Dragons? Check. Underwater airways? Check. Waking up in someone else's body? Check. Anything is possible when I write and the thrill that comes with it is better than any chemical high could ever produce. It's natural. It's Creative. It's heavenly.

I truly believe that when we create things we become partners with the greatest creator of all. I love being a pen in the hand of the Lord and feeling his spirit move through me. Even in writing fantasy? You might ask. You bet! Fantasy is nothing but a grown up fairy tale, a story with a purpose and a message in many cases.

Besides the gospel and my family it is my greatest love of all.

I feel EXACTLY the same about writing. Wow!

Christine Bryant said...

And so it should be. I'm here to testify, after reading your wonderful words that came straight from your creative mind, that you are indeed a talented writer. So...SUBMIT! I know I sound like a broken record, but that's what friends are for, to encourage the best part of us and to tolerate the worst. (I added that last part because you are reading my worst)LOL

Hugs

Oh oh, me too! If we didn't love to write, we wouldn't have met, or be friends, or...have the opportunity to experience the worlds we each create.

You're a brilliant writer, and I'm glad to know you and have the privilage of reading your work before it's even published.

You are amazing writer. I love your words and the worlds and characters you create, too. And I so feel the same way about the Creator. You are awesome!

Here, here! I agree! I feel so happy when I write and "men are that they might have joy." so it must be right--write? :)
