What Does Writing Mean To You?

When I was in the 4th grade, we were given an assignment. That assignment was to write about what we wanted to be when we grew up. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I liked to write and therefore I wanted to be a writer!

However, as the years went by I stopped writing. It no longer held the same excitement for me anymore. I grew tired of it for some reason.

In my junior and senior years, I got back into it and started writing tons of poetry. Page after page of poetry. In my senior year of high school, I fell into a deep depression and when I wrote, it was dark. Page after page of hate filled rants. I wasn’t a Christian at the time so my writing was very depressing.

I still suffer from depression, even as a Christian, but with God on my side, my writing has taken a turn for the better! My writing is light and full of, mostly, positive things. And even now, as the words struggle to come out, I know God is with me.

Writing can be very therapeutic if you let it. Just sit down and let the words flow. Sometimes it will be hard. Sometimes the words just won’t flow. But I’ve learned to give it to God.

Right now the words aren’t flowing for me, lol. I keep getting distracted and my mind is drawing a blank on what to write about.

I’m currently in South Carolina visiting my sister and her family for the week. My sister recently received a job promotion and is now living in South Carolina and working in North Carolina.

I may not be on here nearly as much while I’m down here but I will try to check in as much as I can.

  1. Have a wonderful time with your sister!!! May blessings be upon you both 🙂

    Writing is certainly a journey and our journey tells a story all on its own. I was introduced to writing stories when I was nine years old because my third grade teacher had us write stories all the time. But I never really thought much about writing stories, though I loved coming up with story ideas and being imaginative. Writing stories was what my childhood best friend was good at. I discovered my love for poetry at 13 and believed I would only be a poet. Now, I’m a poet, blogger, and currently on my fifth year of working on writing a Christian book series. The day I completed my first novel I cried to God because it was something I never thought possible. Praise His name for being the Impossible!!! God be with you!

  2. Good post! I think my strengths are reading and writing. I’m not a math guy at all lol… can’t say that I’d ever write a book, but poetry and thoughts on things really help me clear my head. I’m trying a blog out… I’ll see how it pans out!
