On A Mission

I read recently on Joanne Phillips blog, about having an “Authors Mission Statement” 🙂 Do go and check it out if you haven’t seen it.

Sooooo, I’ve been trying to come up with my own he he he! it’s been blooming hard I can tell you.

I write about the ups and downs of ordinary life. I’m fascinated by how people respond, emotionally, so I throw problems at my characters, to see how they will deal with them. I don’t always write happy endings. For me, a satisfactory ending is far more important. In real life, not everything turns out the way we planned or hoped and the same is true for my characters. I don’t claim to be a master of literature. My writing is easy to read, down to earth and straightforward. I don’t need to change the world, but if I manage to help one reader realise that they are not alone, I will be more than happy.

Ha ha ha….that kinda sounds depressing doesn’t it? Not sure that should be my Mission Statement for Mills & Boon, they’d be mortified! Lol


Do you have a mission statement? If not, fancy giving it a go?

  2. I have thought about this but never put it into words before. I’ll take a stab at it though …
    I write to step through the mirror that separates reality from the imaginary, and in that reflection I search for truth. In fiction I ask the questions I am afraid to confront in my life, and in my stories I create the answers I want to hear. In this story world, love conquers fear, and courage makes us beautiful. Whether they are set on a faraway planet, or a suburb of LA, my stories contain fantasy and love and miracles, and the time I spend with my characters makes the world a better place for me to live in.
    I hope that someday my readers can join me there.

    That came out better than I expected. 🙂


  3. Hi Vikki,
    I love your mission statement – straight from the heart! And I love Kirsten’s too. I keep mine pinned up above my desk, and if my writing flags it helps to keep me on track by reminding me why I’m doing it in the first place!

  4. I don’t think yours sounds depressing!
    I have a mission statement – it’s on my twitter profile. “I write stuff.” (well they don’t give you much space and I wanted to get my book titles on there too)


  5. Good idea, but I don’t have a mission statement. I do have a quote I found which I adore and sums everything up nicely for me : “Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” by William Wordsworth. 🙂
