Encouraging Words for the Christian writer

Blog for writers

What is your why?

Posted on 23 July, 2019 at 9:05

I didn’t feel like writing my blog post today.  I needed to write my blog post  so I'd have it ready to include in my weekly newsletter, but the motivation just wasn't there. So I almost didn't write a blog post  for today's newsletter. Until I remembered my why.

You see, my why determines why I write. My why is my purpose for writing. It helps me get up every day and stay committed to my writing goals. And it reenergizes me when the journey of writing gets weary along the way.

So I took some time this morning to reflect on the following question: Why am I writing?

  • I am writing because I want to make a living as a writer
  • I am writing because I want to  inspire other Christian writers
  • I am writing because I want to teach 
  • I am writing because I want to create a body of work I can be proud of and leave as a legacy  

Why are you writing?  Here are eight reasons to consider from Joannna Penn, Author of The Successful Author Mindset:

  1.  It is my life goal to write a book I can be proud of and can hold in my hand
  2.  I want to get an agent and a publishing deal
  3.  I want to see my book on the shelves of a bookstore
  4.  I want to reach readers with my words
  5.  I want to sell lots of books.
  6.  I want to receive critical acclam and win a literary prize
  7.  I want to make a full-time living with my writing
  8.  I want to create a body of work that I can be proud of over my lifetime.

Are you feeling a bit weary on your journey as a Christian writer? Then take a moment to remember your why.

Sharing the journey,
