Writing makes me feel free from my mind and put all my thoughts and feelings into it. It feels calm and soothing when you write. I remember when I was little we always had to write our stories in cursive which always helped me to remember things like my vocabulary. I want to improve on my grammars and my words in the future ahead of me, which will take me to the higher roads of writing. I can say what I want to say and express myself without the fear of being judged. Those who'd judge my writing have no right to read it. I write to perforate my emotion and escape the cruel. Writing is my art form, and I will do it whether it is appreciated by others or not. Writing is a therapy for me to keep us writers alive and communicate and share each
Writing is not just marking letters, words, or symbols on a piece of work. My perspective states that writing is not just expressing yourself through words; in fact, it is mostly one’s expression; your emotions, thoughts, beliefs, etc. Correspondingly, according to myself, writing is extremely artistic and evocative way to reveal one self’s personality. Most important, I am in the creative writing class, because I desired to be in it, due to the fact that it is my passion, it is a way I can express myself thoroughly, and it makes me feel as if I am in a whole different world where I can reveal everything I desire.
However, most of the time I will despise writing and try to avoid it as much as possible. The reason I do not like writing is, because I frequently have so much to say and I cannot grasp a way to organize everything. When I write for enjoyment I will mainly write about the thoughts in my head and nonchalantly caring if it makes sense or not. It’s like the difference between a doodle and a drawing. A doodle is just a “whatever” picture. It is just randomly drawn and it won’t matter if the lines are straight or not. In a drawing everything has to be perfect and neat. I enjoy to “doodle” write and just write my thoughts out about anything, I am afraid to publicly say. I’ve been taught to write by having teachers just tell me what they want me to write. The part about me learning to write I kind of have taught myself using some of the knowledge that previous teachers have given me. Not only, but I also, face several challenges as a writer like the lack of creativity and writing descriptively. When I write, I like to just state my point or main idea, but I struggle with describing it in depth and explaining my main idea as specific as possible. Some writers make a drama and explain everything so clearly and their emotions, however I am not that type of
Writing became a way for me to express other feelings throughout my young years, but I always ended up writing in notebooks about how I was lonely and felt that I was the source of everything wrong in my life.
Writing has never been a real interest of mine. The only time I had to write any of my thoughts on paper was in school. I believed that one had to have that special trait or gift in them that made them a good writer, just like athletes are gifted in their sport. After reading the articles by Pat Mora and the other one from George Orwell, there can be many reasons as to why anyone would like to write.
I’m Katlynn Hauber. I have three sisters, two brothers, and two wonderful parents who support me in every way possible. My hobbies include FFA, working at a daycare, reading, and writing. I do FFA because I love agriculture, I do daycare because I love playing with kids. I read and write because it’s easy….well I think. What does writing mean? More importantly, what does good writing mean? Well to me, good writing means the story has to have a purpose. If the writer doesn’t have a purpose then why are they writing? It’s like if John Lennon’s hit song “Imagine” did not have meaning would people still be affected the same way they were when they first heard it, I think not. That is why I am taking this class to make sure my writing motivates
If you were to type in “writing is…” into a search bar, the first suggestion that would pop up would be “writing is hard.” In many ways it can be, writing is an outlet to put all your personal thoughts and experiences onto a paper for all to see and criticize is nerve- racking. For any person writing can be a struggle to piece together their thoughts into coherency, but it is all part of the bigger process. Writing can help you convey what you truly believe and let your creativity run free through putting a part of yourself into your work. It is a way to let out any powerful emotions about something that is happening in your life in a healthy, almost therapeutic way. This idea of revealing your true self for your work can be seen in Leon Uris’s quote that states,” You can lie to your wife or your boss but you cannot lie to your typewriter sooner or later you must reveal your true self in your pages.” The author uses the typewriter as a metaphor for an object you can confide in and not lie to much like a diary.
Writing not only make thinking visible but also redefine the ideas and thoughts. It improves communication skills, creative thinking and creativity. Writing is all about to play with words.
Writing, to me, is flinging “the gossamer thread” that Whitman describes. It’s basically my want to be understood. If I can somehow word an idea just right then it’ll serve as a bridge between myself and the reader better than any conversation could. The few times I’ve reached this sweet spot and created something I’m proud of has induced a kind of happiness I think is only accessible through writing. But while I do enjoy writing, I don’t think I’m very good at it. Constructing an essay or paper takes me far longer than it should. I tend to overthink each sentence, rewording and rewriting until they become borderline nonsensical. Because of this, writing can sometimes bring me as much stress as it does joy. I blame this on two things: my perfectionism
It is never fun to be “forced” to write a 10 or more page paper on a topic that is typically not interesting or worth the effort. As I reflect on the many papers I’ve had to write in life, however, I have realized that the research papers are more like practice for something more enjoyable to write, for instance: this personal essay. In fact, I have learned a lot by writing research papers. I have learned how to present an argument, how to use punctuation, and how to not be “fluffy” and redundant in my paragraphs. From experience, I have noticed that research papers are the assignments that my teachers have been most involved with. We usually work on these types of essays in class and that allows for students like me to ask the teacher questions at my leisure. Interestingly enough, I enjoy writing papers more than I like reading books. The main reason is because I am the one that is writing the “book”. I know what I find funny, amusing, and interesting. Essentially, I am the creator in my essays and can constantly alter my work whereas in a book, if I am bored with it, I am still stuck with
I am not going to lie; writing does not come very easy to me and often have a hard time figuring out how to start a paper. However, I am ready for you to get to know me better.
Writing is something that I find relaxing and freeing. Whether I am overwhelmed with school, giddy about an upcoming trip, or just want to create a story- I always turn to writing. My mind becomes clear of the thoughts that were present before I picked up a pen and paper, and I feel as though I can create more than words… I am capable of creating a piece of art for those around me to read. However, I am feel like I cannot do this without silence and the serenity that is found only when I am alone at night.
When people think of writing, they usually refer to those who create novels, short stories, and poems. However, writing is the ability to write fluently in multiple forms and to know how to persuade a particular audience. With any other skill, writing takes time, patience, motivation, and practice. As a matter of fact, knowing this makes people quiver when they’re asked to write an essay. Writing also helps people realize what they are interested in and what they’re not interested in. Since writing is something people struggle with already, it becomes more complicated when they have to write about something that doesn’t intrigue their mind.
Do you ever have trouble writing papers and staying focused? Does writers’ block frequently occur to you? Well, if you’re anything like me writing just isn’t natural for you, even though you have been doing it since you were a kid in grade school. Today I would like to talk to you about my personal experiences in life that have helped me become the man and writer I am today. I’ll inform you about what motivates me or discourages me during the writing process, what I want to become more educated on, what interests me within my field of study, some questions and concerns I have regarding my own beliefs, and how I plan to extract information and skills from this class that I will use to pursue my
I have always thought of writing as a way to express feelings and thoughts. A way that requires nothing but an idea in my head and a pen in my hand. But not until after taking this course; Childhood in Three Disciplines, that I actually realized that some writings need more than just ideas and pens. Some writings require thinking, planning, researching, and analyzing, and those were the kinds I got introduces to in this course.
