Yesterday we talked about finding 3 words to describe your writing. Or, more broadly, your passion, project, or calling.
Today I want you to take it a little further. Take each of those words and write about the what and why of them.
Why does it call out to you? What does it invoke in you?
If you lived-wrote-sang-played like this, what would it look like?
There’s two ways I’d approach this:
1. Write 3 sentences to a paragraph on your word. Keep it short. Make every word count. Choose words and descriptions that speak to your core.
2. Just write. If you’ve picked your words, but aren’t quite sure why or aren’t yet able to articulate keep writing. Write until you see what you mean.
So often I feel something, but don’t know how to translate it into clarity until I’ve rambled for a few pages. That’s okay. Sometimes we need to ramble to see. We’re clearing cobwebs and working out kinks. In the end we’ll better know our self and our purposes.
Once you’re done, read over it and meld it into one sentence. Maybe two. Go for brevity.
Think of it as your vision statement. Type it up. Make it pretty and keep it somewhere you’ll see to remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing.

I feel like I’m cutting you short and there really is more to say, but today’s one of those days where the kids are quietly going crazy and my to do lists need to be put on paper and anyone want to make my grocery list? Anyone?
