I am here….

I will write because the art of writing grants my heart freedom.

I will write only my heart’s words because anything else enslaves my voice.

I will write dangerously. Daring to reopen wounds and knowing that the flow of words from pain is healing.

I will look to others for inspiration, but never for comparisons. I am unique.

I will write when I am inspired to. I will write when I am not. I will write, period.

I will write in confidence and never for subscriptions or followers.

I will never be content with “good enough,” but strive to be my best.

I am commanded to use my gift of words to inspire, encourage and share hope.

If I write for any other reason than I am being untrue to my calling.

I am here to create.

I am here to dream.

I am here to believe in myself.

I am here to love my life and honor that gift.

I am here to make my mark.

I am here to make it count.

   I am here to write.


During Blissdom we had the honor of workshops led by so many talents. One of my personal favorites was Jeff Goins. A local writer with a heart for the very core of writing. Writing because you love it, not for any other reason (although being published wouldn’t be all bad!)

After checking out his website, I downloaded the free e-book “The Writer’s Manifesto.” He encourages the reader to write their own. Above was my take from it.
