Shenandoah Christian Writers Discuss Why We Write

This list came thanks to Kay Walsh of Shenandoah Christian Writers:

Reasons We Write

* It is a gift from God

* Relief from stress

* Words are my art and melody

* I enjoy it

* Without it, I feel empty

* To give hope to others

* It is a record and/or witness to my life

* Helps me see how God is at work in my life

* I have something worthwhile to say

* It's fun!

* Helps to prepare me to speak

* To share information

* It is a discipline

* I aspire to use the gift God has given

* To impact the lives of others

* To work through things

* I have stories to tell

* I like coming to the Shenandoah Writer's group so I have to write ;-)

Quote from Jen F.: "If you read what you want to write, you will write what people want to read."

Quote from Richard E.: "Your will, your words, my voice."

Quote from Donna S.: "When I read your article it was like eating desert."

(Quotes may not be exact, but pretty close ;-)

So have a Happy Reading and Writing New Year!
