WRITING WHAT WE LOVE

alien sunset I have always loved to read, and I have always loved music. I have also, for as long as I can remember, been completely mesmerized by the stars in the night sky, often wondering if there were any other civilizations out there for mankind to meet one day. While many of my childhood fancies have turned to dust (one being the idea of other civilizations in the cosmos…check out my post ALIENS, PART II), the dreams of writing and being published have been, and are being, fulfilled.
But yet, when I start on a new project, there is that one teeny, tiny matter that always arises before me like that car that pulls out of the parking lot on to the highway in front of me just as I am wanting to share the exact same physical place at the exact same time; what do I write about next? What style of vehicle am I going to climb into and drive down the superhighway of words? Will it be serious? Will it be funny? Am I writing in the past, the present, or even the future? How about a combination of all the above? How about none of the above?opera I love music…could I write an opera? No, I gave up on that idea a long time ago. I mean since I can’t read music I really shouldn’t try to write any (thank you Mark Lowry), and besides…I have never enjoyed opera (with solemn apologies to all you opera buffs, yeah, both of you).
Alas, what to write indeed! One thing I would like to share with you, and it is a very obvious matter indeed (at least, to me). Write about what you love or about how you feel. Now, don’t get me wrong here, I didn’t say it would be easy….but it doesn’t have to be as difficult to figure out as Celestial Mechanics either.
So, here we go….what is inside you that is screaming to get out?on mountain What is it that, if given the opportunity, you would like to share with the whole world? Or, would you like the chance to share something so precious to you that if only one human life on planet Earth could be changed for the better by reading it, you would have fulfilled your whole life’s destiny? All of this, and more, awaits you. You simply need to consider the individual vehicle of writing that works for each and every message…each and every thing that you would want to stand upon the highest mountain and scream to the world. Or whisper.
You know, if I could write a message in the sky for the whole world to read, or scribble upon the beaches of the world for all to see…I would borrow a line from the Bible; Enoch walked with God and then was no more, for God took him.
So, sit down with pen or pc, and let God write a story with your heart. After all, He is the source of our inspiration. Let Him use you to touch lives!
