I Declare That “I Am A Writer and A Photographer”!

Thank you Jeff Goins for pushing me to declare that I AM A WRITER!  I have been following Jeff Goins for some time now, and I have read his great little e-book The Writer's Manifesto and I am a third of the way through his latest book – You Are A Writer (So Start Acting Like One).

At the beginning of the book, he asks you to declare that you are a writer.  For me, it was much easier to declare that I was something else…although I still struggled with that especially as it related to my photography (which is what this blog primarily deals with); however, I realized that…

I am not just a photographer, but…

a visual storyteller.

I am not just a strategist, but…

a visual artist of interwoven concepts and patterns.

I am not just a reader, but…

a sponge that soaks in the wisdom of those who have gone before me.

I am not just an Elder, but…

a shepherd on a journey to guide, encourage, lead, and help people grow closer to God.

I am not just a person who puts words on a page,

I AM A WRITER!

As a writer, I share the stories that leave an imprint on our souls.  As a photographer, I capture the still, small moments that leave us breathless and in awe of what we have just witnessed.  Together, they form the basis of this diary.  This journal.  This step into a story that is both lived and viewed.

And with a healthy dose of curiosity…

I DECLARE THAT I AM A WRITER and A PHOTOGRAPHER!
