What Kind of Writer Are You?

I can tell what you read, by how you write.

I have read all of Melody Beattie’s books, and am now finishing up two books by Marianne Williamson. My writing has evolved over time, but this is where I sit. In a calm, quiet space. Allowing the words to fall to the page.

Maybe you have certain rules for writing.

Much like life itself, there aren’t many rules for me.

I’ve tried making a schedule like I do for work, but no joy there. Writing is a large part of who I am, so it comes from the heart. It’s a feeling I get, like I can feel the words welling up inside me. There is no schedule for that.

I’ve tried writing for other people, and that doesn’t work either. I cannot become something I’m not.

When we first moved to this little house near the city, I thought it would be fun to write for a local paper. Not a big one, just a small town vibe.  I called one and gained valuable insight. I spoke with the editor and told him I am a writer and would like to write about the town. I would share my stories with him, and he could place them in the community section of the paper.

He asked, “Are you a journalist, or someone who writes, and calls himself a writer?”

Come to find out, a journalist has to be news savvy. I haven’t watched the news in years and don’t read a paper. I was grateful for our conversation and happy to have spoken with him. He confirmed what I already knew. I’m a writer.

The only thing I need to know that would be newsworthy is, “When is Jesus coming back?” I’m pretty sure we will know.

So tell me, “What kind of writer are you?”

  1. I’ve deleted a few blogs I’ve created long time ago. I really don’t categorize myself as a writer. I just write what comes to mind and I love the sense of freedom in doing so. I’m also very lazy so in my new blog, I just write very short ones and I barely review them before posting! Yeah, lazy!!! Lol! I love your work, though. They’re inspiring! 💕

    I am still finding out what kind of writer I am…I do know that its my passion and that when I am inspired it flows out of me effortlessly with no plan…I like to write about stuff in my heart as opposed to current affairs (which I am usually a step or two behind on)…I have just recently deactivated my blog and am having fun discovering just what type of writer I am/want to be….
