I do love the feeling of a story coming together in the right words, the right pace. Who needs any other kind of high, when you've got that?
Actually, on that note, here's something I wrote a while back. It didn't come out quite the way I planned it, and I may try again someday, but until then I present:
The Prayer of the Christian Fan Fiction Writer
Father of beauty, of strength, of truth;
Lord of wisdom, of redemption, of love;
Spirit of power, of peace, of joy;
I open to you, Storyteller.
Thanking you for patterns created,
molded in minds made quick by your gifts.
Thanking you for clearer reflections,
my own story framed in another’s words.
Asking you for the strength for my journey,
for wide-open eyes, for a heart free to love.
Asking for stories, poured out through my mouth,
tales of hope for my fen, for my tribe.
Praising your worth, your unending delights,
bestowed upon us in most unlikely shapes.
Praising your holiness, grace set apart,
the truth of the forms we embrace in the tales.
Spirit of excellence, of life, of speech;
Lord of acceptance, of newness, of light;
Father of forgiveness, of birth, and of death,
Come fill me now, Storyteller.
