Today focus of writing in this 10 day challenge turns to the exploration of my purpose and the importance of exploring the why behind my actions. This exploration could be simply of writing or it could things like the dreams I hold, how I spend my time, or take care of myself or my family.
"Writers and artists create their work for a reason. Whether it be to simply let all of their emotions out onto the page so they don't explode, to inspire social change and activism, or to help heal their readers by sharing the guidance and wisdom of their personal story."
While today I will start with a single purpose - my writing - I suspect as I expand that exploration in the future to other areas of my life, I will find a larger underlying theme to all I do - a who I am at my core discovery. And I suspect it will have to do with my upbringing. But that is for a future discussion.
Day 3 - Create a Poem of Purpose
Why do I write? Why do I share the stories of others? Why do I get goosebumps when interviewing? Why do I feel dry and empty after 2 years of isolation? These are all good questions to start my "poem." This won't really be written as a poem, more a random list of ideas as I explore, but who knows. I might come back and be able to use this for a serious poem in the future.
