How to REALLY Reach Your Readers: What Theme Drives the Plot of Your Life?

What Theme Drives the Plot of Your Life, Author Branding, Janette Foreman,

What theme drives the plot of your life?

Seems like a strange question, but I think it’s a valid one. Every entrepreneur, let alone writer, should answer this question.

Because from your “theme” overflows your message.

And, of course, the message is what you’re trying to convey to your audience/readers.

I like to call this message your core story. What is your core story? It’s the burning message deep within you that you can’t help but share with the world. It should infuse your entire online presence in one form or another because that’s who you are and what you stand for.

You see, our lives are stories. When we tap into the theme that drives the plot of our life, we can touch the plots of others’ lives, and reach our readers at a profound level.

For example, my core message is “worth.” Not money-worth, but worth found in Christ. Everything I post stems from my believe that YOU ARE WORTHY. Worthy of your dreams, worthy of love, of joy, of empowerment, of friendship, of salvation…

Simply because you were created in God’s image. And God doesn’t make junk.

Plain and simple.

My novels, my blog posts, my social media posts, my memes, everything, show my love for you, for mankind, and hopefully equip you to be more inspired, encouraged, knowledgeable, and worthy.

How do you figure out your Core Message?

You look within. You dig deep. Write down a list of words that resonate with you. Think about what kind of legacy you want to leave with the world. Another way to say that is asking yourself what you want written on your gravestone.

If you could only proclaim one message for the rest of time, what would it be?

You may be thinking, “How can I pick ONE thing and still have enough to blog about for the unforeseeable future?” Trust me. If you pick a message that keeps you up at night, gets your heart beating faster, brings tears to your eyes, you’ll have plenty to write about!

So, how about it?

  1. God’s grace and forgiveness is a driving theme for most of my articles and characters!!!!! It’s been the driving force in my personal life and I want others to know the power of His grace!
