I saw a post recently that asked the question:
“Why do you write?”
At first I thought it was a trick question. It’s definitely not because I think I’m the best writer in the world. I’m not planning on winning gold medals (or whatever you get for writing the best stuff!). But if I do, hey, I’ll write an acceptance speech!
I really started to think though, “Why do I get up at 5:00 a.m. some mornings (or earlier!) and write before I’ve let a cup of coffee penetrate every blood vessel?”
As quickly as I started to analyze this question, I realized it’s the reason I do it even when I don’t feel adequate.
1 – To encourage others to pursue their passion and dream and never give up.
2 – To provide hope to those who feel hopeless.
3 – To remind women they are valuable, worthy and loved.
That’s why I write.
And if my writings only reach a small handful of people, but it makes a difference in their life, then I’ve succeeded.
So, let me ask you…why do you do what you do?
