I AM A WRITER
My mission is to create fiction that will entertain readers while sharing the Gospel in some form. I have always admired writers, and have dabbled in creative writing since about age nine. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve written longer stories that have caused the urge to write and publish a novel to grow until it could no longer be ignored. I see great fiction as a portal to another world inside of our minds, and hope to succeed in helping readers find that portal through my words.
- 300+ words per day
- “show, don’t tell”
- avoid filter words
- First rough draft by the end of 2017
- Mon – Fri: 7:00pm for one hour
- Sat & Sun: 3 hours per day (finds times that work best and keep me most productive)
I crafted this mission statement as part of a writing exercise in The Dance of Character and Plot by DiAnn Mills.
