College, Writing, & Blogging Tip: Where is your significance?

Hey Everyone!

Today’s tip is a short one, and really, I hope it is more thought-provoking than answer-providing.

When you start to write, what is your significance? Not sure what I’m asking. Let me make it simple. Let me ask you this.

Why?

“Why what, Kayla?” You might be asking.

Why do write? Why are you writing about your particular topic? In other words, where is your significance?

Now yes, of course, you can just write for fun! Many of us do, but writing is almost-always better when you have a purpose. So consider asking yourself this:

  • What is my purpose for writing this piece? Is it simply to entertain others? And if it is, how am I entertaining? It is meant to move others, to cause a particular reaction? Or is it more about me? Is it a way for me to release my own emotions, to confront my own demons? Every piece of writing is different and so every piece of writing will have a different purpose.
  • A blog post, a piece of fiction, and an essay are all written for various reasons with different expected outcomes. Make sure that you take the time to decide your “why” before you write!

I would love to hear back from you in the comments! Where is your significance when you write? Do you think that there has to be one?

Happy Writing Everyone!

  1. Wow. A thought-provoking question. The next fiction piece I have scheduled to post was written to invoke EMOTION. It will generate a conversation. That’s what I wanted and I believe I will get that response. Each piece is different, as you say. I will keep the question in mind as I write future work. It will make the work better overall and reach the intended audience.

  2. Well I started my blog to have a voice in this world, to let my heart and mind speak, ’cause I know that most of us will leave without leaving any trace of their existence. At least this way, I can say that I’ve been here, I’ve left a part of me somewhere which might be found by whomever wishes to.
    As I said I have a voice, an opinion, a thought, a poem, a drawing… anything that may say that I’m here, part of this universe which God created. So that’s the main purpose of my blog.
    I love to meet new people who want to be part of my journey, I didn’t have any friends before, but now I can say that I have many.

    Plus I’ve opened a new blog a few days ago called Centiscript which is about beauty and cosmetics, it is a way to empty my mind on certain topics.

  3. I write for various reasons. Sometimes I write to express my opinion on a certain matter, send across a message, for fun, etc. Whenever I write a story and I draft my outline, I ask myself a few questions. What is it about? Why am I writing this? When does the story take place? Where does the story take place? How am I going to get my characters to reach their goal? I think asking yourself what is the purpose of you writing a story, essay. poem, etc. is important, because it gives you a clearer view of what is it that you want out of writing a particular piece.

  4. Interesting question. I don’t think it’s necessary to have significance. But that just applies to my writing. I’m not writing to teach anyone anything, or to bemoan my woes, or to save the world. I’m writing to express my feelings, mostly about love and life. Based on comments on my posts, it seems to at least have significance to some readers. If so fine, if not, I’m ok with that. ☺

  5. Ideally (or maybe idealistically😉), I’d like my writing to minister to hurting people, to show them they’re not alone, to give them hope for a better tomorrow, to open their eyes to the salvation and healing found in Jesus.

  6. I write for two main reasons. 1) to help me work through the jumbled “mess” in my head that are called thoughts. 2) I have a heart to reach people in a real way.
