How Does Writing Make You Feel?

Last weekend I had the opportunity to be part of the faculty at Weekend with the Writers. There I got to meet Kristen Heitzmann, an amazing award-winning writer. I sat in on her class and found my passion for writing reignited. Here's one of the quotes that reminded me of exactly why I write.

  1. As a non-fiction and primarily devotional writer, I see a photograph of part of my heart on paper...or computer screen as the case may be.

  7. what everyone else said!! I feel like a dam on a river, or perhap the sluice that releases the waters; when I'm writing the words flow and it's exhilarating to watch them come to life

  9. I go through many emotions when I write. Joy, fear, frustration (when I can't find the right words), satisfaction, and the list goes on! Ultimately...joy knowing I'm writing for Him!

  10. When I write most of the times I feel empathetic and frustrated. I do it anyway. Once in a great while something great comes out of it.

  11. Just reading the comment above mine--I so understand Brian Sommers's thoughts.

    Sometimes writing kicks my tail and beats me up, and I wonder why I'm doing this.

    Ohhhh, but then there are those rare times when my words come out just right and feel so good flowing from my soul through my fingers. And then someone says, "Thank you. I didn't know anyone ever felt this way."
