Writing is what I do and who I am. The intersection of ideas and words is where I most naturally exist. It is not always a comfortable or smooth place – as any writer will tell you. But it is home, in ways that defy logical explanation.
I have written for newspapers, magazines, book publishers, Bible publishers, business organizations, non-profit ministries, academic journals, and myself. That last one is both the easiest and the hardest writing of all.
Though writing is natural, it is rarely easy. Though writing is powerful, it is also painstaking. Though writing is life-giving, it is supremely exhausting.
Which is to say: writing is much like life.
Like Aslan, writing isn’t safe. Far from it. But it is good – good for the mind, good for the heart, and good for the soul.
