Your answer will vary according to your gifts, experience, expertise, and God’s leading. Christian writers generally want to glorify God, make a difference in the lives of readers, and use our talents and opportunities for good.
After I attended my first writers conference, my dream became to change the world, humbly accept the inevitable fame and fortune, and cheerfully give God 10 percent.
I was young and inexperienced, but that dream motivated me. When my first book was rejected, I wondered what had happened to God’s leading. Eventually, I realized I wasn’t accomplished, but I had potential. I returned to school and took every writing, English, and literature course available, one at a time.
