The motto for Wittenberg University, my alma mater, is “Having Light We Pass It On To Others.” I’ve been thinking a lot about that call to action. I especially thought of it a few days ago when I was notified that one of the students in my first writing workshop won a young author award for the story she wrote in my class.
I’ve learned a tremendous amount, culminating from my years as a creative writing undergrad and the past eight years I’ve spent immersed in the publication industry. I have so much to share—to pass on.
I’ve decided it’s a shame to hoard knowledge. In appropriate measure, in ways I hope will be received, I desire to impart the things that have shaped me as a writer. Those insights that have grown me.
With that, I can’t stress enough how more than anything else it is imperative that you, as a writer, search relentlessly for your own voice. Take your own road. Bushwhack if you have to. But carve out a path that makes sense for you and your journey.
And then one last thing, don’t stuff all the light down deep inside you. Pass it on.
Hi there! I'm a new visitor to your blog. Your words and pictures are so beautiful and inspiring. I, too, am a writer. Check out my blog when you have the time: A Path to Create, Not FindReplyDelete
Have a great day!
Thanks for visiting, Audra. Hoping this post spoke to you. Curious how blogging has been going for you.Delete
Definitely feel like I am 'bushwhacking.' I can't seem to see a thing right now! But carrying on and searching. Thank you for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
Love that you're carrying on & searching, Lynn! And I can completely relate to bushwhacking may way through. There has to be a clearing out there somewhere, right? ;-)Delete
Wendy: We need to pass on the good things about our lives. One day, I will be held accountable to God about what I did for Him.I am at a point where I want to do what He wants me to do with my writing. I have a new idea but I want to know if it's from him.ReplyDelete
Let me know if you end up pursuing that idea. Thanks for inspirational reminder.Delete
