This is me…right now.

I am privileged to be part of a local Christian writers group that meets once a month. Sometimes we have presenters for topics. This past Monday, we had a writing exercise after discussing “Mission Statements.”

“Mission Statement” = fancy phrase for “this is me…right now.” Let me share mine with you:

  • I tell honest stories to make people think and give my readers something clean to read.
  • Don’t pigeon-hole me into a genre because I’ll make a new pen name.
  • I know my stories won’t be for everyone, but I will lean into my honest, sarcastic self and remember that Jesus wasn’t the most popular guy on his block either.

If I had written a Mission Statement when I started this journey, it would’ve looked something like this: I write biblical historical fiction filled with romance and adventure.

Right? Not me now. I’m happy to be releasing this one into the wilds in THREE MONTHS!!! (why this keeps posting with a neon background, I have no clue)

And it’s okay to evolve as a writer and person. I think it’s a GOOD thing. Shows that you’re willing to change for the better. Adapt. Not be boxed into an exact mold of someone else.

You ever scratched out a Mission Statement? Maybe you should.
