I had a couple of conversations this past week with friends of mine who love to write and are quite talented, and both conversations wandered toward a similar path: talented people who love to write don’t seem to find the time to write enough.
I’m privileged to have a forum where I get to share my thoughts, opinions, and observations for thousands to read roughly once a week, and I get paid a little for it. I absolutely love what I do, and it’s a gig I wouldn’t trade for the world. But the dilemma I find myself in is this: between writing assignments and working a full-time job, I don’t make enough time to write for the sheer pleasure of writing.
I’ve been given this talent from God…I need to write more for His glory.
I love what I do…I need to write more for my own enjoyment and satisfaction.
I need to make a commitment to expanding my creativity, to stretching my talent, to enjoying writing beyond what I get paid for.
Hopefully as a result of all this soul searching, you’ll see more from this website. Of course I’ll continue to share my posts from PJMedia and any other pieces that get published, but I also want to write “just because.”
After all, what good is a gift if I don’t use it to its fullest?
