For my next writer’s group meeting our assignment is an excellent one. One that I hope motivates me and propels me forward in my writing.

The assignment: Come up with a mission statement for your writing.

Why do you write? How long have you written? What inspires you to write?

There’s a lot of food for thought in those questions that will hopefully help me keep my focus on this journey toward publication. But then again, the assignment makes me wonder – is that my ultimate goal? What about the process? There certainly is joy in that. Well, most of the time, as it can be a frustrating passion at times. Just what is my mission? It is certainly worth exploring. What’s your mission statement?
