Why I Love to Write

I remember when I first realized that I loved to write.

I was in high school, and I had a newfound fascination with the Bible—especially Biblical prophecy—and it dawned on me that I had, somehow, unexpectedly, developed a love for writing.

Growing up with a passion for sports, my first desire was to be a sports broadcaster—that is, if I did not make it as a professional athlete. But, come to think of it, even back then, every once in a while I would dream of writing a sports column.

Why I Write This Column

Somewhere, along life’s way, I was bitten by the bug for writing.

My passion is not so much for writing itself—though I realize that there are people like that. But for me is has more to do with a desire to express my opinion and provide meaningful and useful—Biblically based—content.

It is hard to say exactly when the bug first bit. I can remember making scrapbooks of sports stories clipped out of the newspaper back in my preschool days. Then I remember when I was old enough to read sports columns—and dream of writing my own one day.

Body

“[I] rate William Zinnser’s On Writing Well as the one all others are measured against. And while I continue to recommend it as often as possible, Le Peau’s book offers several strengths that wonderfully complement and even supplement Zinnser’s.” - Challies
