Write Like There's No Tomorrow

Dear Writer Friend,

       It's in you to write because you are a writer. There's no need to walk down any other road of thought. It's who you are. It's what you've been given. So write dear friend, write. Don't waste another moment thinking that you're not good enough. No one is "good enough", whatever that is. Write for the sheer hilarity it brings. Write funny things. Write things that you love. No one need ever see it. You won't sell everything. You won't publish everything. But not writing - you won't publish anything. And my friend, that's just not acceptable, because it's in you to write.

        Why not take a precious few moments of each day to get alone and love those moments by doing what you love to do---be a wordsmith. Close your eyes and type. Tap into that beautiful source, that flow of God's thoughts and inspiration to you and just let er rip! As you turn to Him, you will always have something to write about.

        Sweet friend, talented friend. Don't quit. Don't give up. Don't give place to thoughts of doubt. You've been given a gift, and to store it in a jar in the nightstand to collect dust is unacceptable. Use that gift, even for a few moments a day. Honour your Father in heaven by using what He gave you. He loves that and He loves you!
