Why Do Your Write?

Your purpose behind the prose says much about where you’ll end up on your writing journey and how you define success.

“The scripture reference I gave during yesterday’s video topic, ‘Why do we write?’ is from Matthew 13 in the passion translation.” – Diana

“The disciples came up and asked (Jesus), “Why do you tell stories?” He replied, “You’ve been given insight into God’s kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it hasn’t been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. That’s why I tell stories: to create a readiness, to nudge the people toward receptive insight. In their present state, they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they are blue in the face and not get it. ”
