Writing Saturday; Where is your writing taking you? Part 110:07 AM
Where is your writing taking you? In other words, what are you called to use your writing talents for? I spend almost every Saturday sharing some of the things that I have learned that have made my writing better. This Saturday, I would like to talk about what we are supposed to do with our craft.
There are many ways that you can use your gift of writing beyond the traditional, write a book, get book published, touch many lives with book. Though that may be what you are called to do, there are other ways to use your talents for God. Some of them may not seem as big as a book, but even if they touch one life, they are just as important.
I started this blog because I wanted to perfect my writing craft (I still have a long way to go). Little did I know that I would find myself less than a year later connected to so many neat young ladies, the manager of a devotional blog (http://meditationsofhislove.blogspot.com/), and feeling so privileged because I had been able to minister to some other girls. If all I ever do with my passion for writing is to write on this blog, I think that it would be a good use of my craft.
There are many small magazines, E-zines, and group blogs, that really need writers and I have been blessed to be allowed write for some of them. Using your writing to encourage and/or challenge sisters (or brothers) in Christ is definitely a worthy use of your talents. I will post a list of all the magazines, E-zines, and group blogs that I know of on Monday. If you have any that you think I should include, leave a comment.
I must confess I am not a great letter writer, but I have a sister Rose that is. Using your writing craft to write letters to others is a wonderful use of your craft. Letters show people you care and that you are thinking of them. Letters have that ability to touch and change the lives of the people who read them.
There are many other ways to use your writing to honor God and change lives. Can you think of some? Where is your writing taking you?
