The Writer Inside Me

Guest post by Laura Hammer

I want to be a writer.

So many times in life we are limited. Either by the laws of nature or our physical bodies. When I write, there is no end to the things I can do. I can create worlds with just a few sentences. I can make a character the person I want them to be. I can have dragons. I can create the places I dream of and the life that is beyond my reach. I can create a story that has all the dark emotions of human nature or one that is so light-hearted it’s ridiculous. I love to write because I have no limitations. Even when you read a book, you are limited by the author’s imagination, but when you write there is no end to the possibilities.

There are so many authors out there and it’s easy to wonder if I will ever make it to publication or if I’m good enough to be a real author. If not, I will praise God for giving me a love of writing, and I will continue to do so. If I am, I will praise God for giving me a love of writing, and I will continue to do so. It doesn’t matter if a book of mine ever sees the light of day because I still enjoy creating worlds from my imagination and writing the stories I want to tell.
I still enjoy watching the people of the world and using the interesting ones for inspiration. I love listening to people and using their words as a favorite saying for one of my characters. I love watching for the stories in the people I pass by. It doesn’t matter if no one else sees it, because to me, I will always be a writer.

Now, I hope that someday my writing will see the light of day and people will like it. I think of how I love my favorite author's books, and I wonder if someone could ever love a book of mine that way. It gives me hope to think of me being some girl’s favorite author and being someone they can look up to. I love the idea of putting a good message in my writing and putting it out there for the world because so much of what gets published today is trash. It doesn’t matter if it is not a classic and doesn’t get passed down for generations because if my writing touches even one person, that means a great deal to me. It doesn’t matter if it’s not what most people want these days because I would rather write something that only a few would read and love than have written something that the world loves and God hates. I want to be proud of my writing and to be able to put it forward with no shame and my head held high. I love to write, and not just fiction. I love writing my feelings, and I should do it more often.
A lot of times, I don’t even know how passionately I feel about something until I start writing about it. It is inexplicable how much more organized my thoughts come out on paper than in my head or through my mouth. Writing is a way to release the passion and feeling inside me in a way that nothing else can. Writing is sometimes my way of praising God. It is my first love, my passion, my pursuit, and my joy. I will never stop writing because there will forever be a story in my head.

About Laura Hammer: I am a seventeen year old aspiring author. I’ve been reading and writing for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what I would do without books and pen and paper! I am a fan girl, sweet tea, open windows, music, and ocean lover. There is a lot more to me, but that’s all I’ll say for now.
