Writing is...

Writing is what happens in between cooking, cleaning, getting kids to school, work, exercise, grocery shopping etc.

Writing can be hard. When it's hard, it's the worst thing ever.

Writing can be easy. When it easy, it's the best thing ever.

Writing takes time, lots of it.

Writing needs life long dedication.

Writing is at it's best when someone loves what you wrote.

Writing is hoping not to see anymore red marks.

Writing means potentially losing your hair, having bags under your eyes and gaining ten pounds.

Writing takes believing. Believing you will reach your potential, you will get better, that someone out there will like what you wrote.

Writing is wishin' and hopin' and prayin'.

Writing needs Patience.
Feel free to add your own.

I love this post!

Writing is pouring your soul on paper and dreaming of the day when someone will read it and feel.

You nailed it, Patti. I think my favorite line of yours is, "Writing is wishin' hopin' and prayin'.

Amen to that!

Writing, to me, is dreaming on paper :)

Writing is camaraderie.

Writing is risk.

Writing is soul leaked into paper.

Writing can make hours of time disappear in the blink of an eye.

Love this Patti!

It takes dedication. More people think they want to do it than really want to do it.

Patti! I love that! That is totally what writing is to me too. And the dreaming (I love the dreaming).

Writing is sitting in the chair and putting words on the paper, even when the words stink, the chair is uncomfortable, and you'd rather watch television. :)

Writing takes A LOT of time, more than I ever imagined before I started.

Kasie West said...

Writing is patience and then more patience and then when you think you've proven your patience, there's another heap of frustration to make you prove it again. But it's all worth it because writing is love.

Great post.

Patti,
Your posts are amazing.

Writing is a gift from God
Writing should be taken seriously, but not in the ways of the world.
Every manuscript, blog post, thank you note, journal entry, written for His glory and with the best skill you have is a jewel to lay at His feet.

Writing is a way to show gratitude for what He did for us who call on the name of His precious son.

Patti said...

All good writing is - especially like the takes lots of time, isn't that the truth.

Jen said...

Thank you for this :)
