Since 2006, I chanced upon this gift of writing incidentally through blogging and my work.
It is through this passion and flair for writing that I discovered more of His calling for me- to be salt and light in the media space or arena.
Writing for His glory
At that time, I really did not know how I was to get in. I just prayed and took each step by faith as it unfolded with each day. And of cos, writing hard each day too.
Though after two years I know that I’m still very far from completing His vision, but I’m amazed at how He has built the in-roads for me to penetrate into the media space as a writer.
It has to be God’s leading as these in-roads appeared out of nowhere for me. It was certainly not due to my own capabilities.
The 90/10 strategy
Besides it being a ministry, I am beginning to see how God is leading me towards this as possible career in the near future.
In spite of the general not-so-good views of writing as not being a lucrative or ideal job in Singapore, I think otherwise.
Based on the 90/10 rule explained by Robert Kiyosaki, I see more opportunities for me to enter into the 10 per cent as a writer. I foresee that this path will be further backed with the emerging trends of the Internet.
We only need to look to the US to see what Singapore’s development will be like in the coming years. And the Internet will be play a massive role in shaping that future.
