What is Writing to You?

There has been enough flexing in this world to last forever and “never let them see you sweat” is terrible advice!

Pondering why and what I write.

Please share any writing thoughts you have. 

I would love to know what writing is to you. Please add to my list in the comments.

For me, writing is:


kindness to myself, 

a way to show love to others

a friend who is always available

the content of my heart, that I am sometimes unaware of

a whisper that makes me lean in

a laugh that makes my abs hurt

a eulogy

a lament 

a memory

a breath of fresh air

a safe place that allows me to reach outside my comfort zone

a dream or vision or hope brave enough to be put on paper

a gift…

  1. I love ALL your “what writing is to me!”

    The best way for us to learn is to communicate what we’re learning back to someone else; for writers, that’s through writing. So for me, I write what I hear The Lord saying to me….what I feel like He is show me…sharing what I’m learning.

    Love your blog Katie!

    1. Oh thank you so much Cindy! I love what writing is to you!!! I have cabinets full of journals of my conversations with God-they are some of my most treasured possessions. Thank you so much for sharing what you are learning, thank you for being a hope-offerer in the name of Jesus!
