Beautiful. This is a truly amazing post, Kellie. I actually wrote a similar post (not like this, though!) of why we write. I write because I can’t not write. Because writing is me, and it’s who I was called to be. I simply can’t imagine what life would be like if I didn’t write.
I too am amazed at where I am, that I can actually say “Hey, I’m an author.”
I write because it is the only way I can share who I am, and because I “Don’t know what I think until I read what I said.”
And I never really thought of it like that before, but yes, I do feel like what you said: What if I’m the only one who sees this, or thinks like that? What if God gave me something to share, and no one else ever hears it?
So I write.
Through it, I have found who I am. I look at myself before I started writing years ago, and I am a completely different person. God changed me when He called me to write, and I write because I know these words are His, and if I let Him, He can change someone else through me.
And I’m simply here because it’s where I ended up, because words are the greatest thing in the world.
So I write.
(not sure if this was exactly 15 min, but it’s my inspiration. Thanks for this post, Kellie!)
