WRITING FROM THE SOUL, NOT THE MEDIA

God is so great in how He brings things into our lives just when we seem to need it…and even when we didn’t realize we did. For all you writers out there, here’s a great video about writing. I so agree with all Jack speaks of.

Though there are rules you need to follow, I too believe in following what’s in your heart. What God had placed in you to write, no matter what’s popular, what will bring in the “big sales”, what the current trend is, what we’re “supposed to write”.

No, I believe in writing from the soul!

I fully agree that writing for the reasons I stated above that were NOT good reasons to write, will often lead to disappointment and ultimately leave you empty. As with anything in life, if you’re not doing it for the right reasons, it will not prove to be what you thought it to be in the end.

So go with your heart, not the media. Go with what God has placed in your soul, the passion He’s given you.

Instead of EAT, PRAY, AND LOVE, how about PRAY, WRITE, AND THANK THE GOOD LORD ABOVE.

Good point Kym. Write from your heart! anything else wouldn't be worth reading anyway, right?

Love your last comment the most. Such good wisdom you've provided, even for those of us who don't write professionally.
