Writing Prompt 105
Write your writer’s mission statement.
Nonfiction writers should make it a point to have a written mission statement at their disposal at any given time. Having a mission statement offers two immediate benefits – – it helps the writer define his type of writing to himself and offers readers a good view of the writer’s professional expertise.
Some people talk about a writer’s manifesto, which is a really cool way of writing a personal declaration of being a writer. The writer’s manifesto tells the world that you’re a writer in a fun, bold way. The writer’s mission statement, by contrast, is not emotional at all. Though still a declaration, the mission statement is factual and concise. Think of it as a one or two-sentence resume.
