Art and Faith Perspective #3: Jordan Hageman

The Faith of a Writer

Who do I think I am?

Builder of worlds, architect of plots, promiser of better.

I flesh out characters I love and give them a voice.

They go where they want but I say: The End.

What gave me the right to do that to them?

Who do I think I am?

Withholder of dreams, creator of tension, chronicler of evil.

I set them in dark places so they know who they are,

So they can break down the walls and overcome in the end.

What gave me the right to choose that for them?

Good?

Bad?

Could the bad reveal how I am good?

Who do I think I am?
