Writing Is Only My Passion There are many people in the world that have spoken about what they love to do. Some people have a yearning to do almost anything. From music and art to science and math, there has been some person to say “That’s just what I love to do.” I can say that there are many things that I consider my passion. One in particular is writing. I love to write in almost any form including poetry, short stories, and music lyrics. I have also started on about three books in the past five years. Though the only form I have ever been able to complete is poetry, I continue to scratch down the words that flow through my brain. My poetic style tends to not rhyme, but has a definite rhythm. The best piece of poetry I feel I ever wrote I titled Optimistic Rights. In this piece, I speak of how people describe their mistakes as a “screw up”. I go on to describe what optimism means to me and how I feel about how people describe their “failures”. When I write poetry, I write according to a feeling I felt when dealing with a sensitive topic. This particular piece I wrote because I was getting tired of the negativity all around me. I felt that people were getting down because they were not getting into the school they wanted to or getting the job they wanted. Optimistic Rights was my “motivational speech” to them.
“Messed up. Screwed up, and I won 't even speak of the other one.

Many people enjoy and have fun writing, but then again, many people dislike having to write, including me. Writing has always been something I was never really interested on for many reasons.
I guess you could say my whole life has revolved around writing. Long before I was born, a boy- now known in North Carolina for his contribution to the arts- named Ira David Wood III, wrote a poem for my grandmother. It was for a baby shower, and the poem was ‘The Birth of Casey Draughon’, a humorous story about how my grandparents were so excited to have their assumed son, and find in the end that had a daughter instead (the best part is, that baby was my mother). So, already having a poem as a namesake, it’s fair to assume that by some far-fetched correlation I was predisposed to enjoy writing.
I’m not a notable writer, nor have I really wanted to join the writing industry. However, I have been interested in other people’s writing. From their deep meanings, content, and different formats/styles. It’s a wondrous creation made from within our imagination and experiences. It has inspired me to write too. I’ve been writing most of my life that it has become a necessity. And now from my past experiences with writing, I try my best to improve my skills as a writer for the future.
Why do I like writing so much? It could be the way the words play in my mind like a movie or the way the characters shape themselves in my head. It could be how I react to the character’s death the same way an audience reacts in a play. It could be how it takes me sometimes hours to come up with one line, but one line that is perfect. A writer is like an artist to a painting or the director of a movie except without the paintbrush or video camera. Writing takes me somewhere else; sometimes it’s a beach or a bench at a park. After hours of brainstorming, writing and editing I feel pride flow through my
Writing has been an outlet for me, and has allowed me to express my passions, guided me along a trying time in my life, and has forced me to acknowledge that I can’t let a disease define who I am, and moreover has pushed me to discover that I’m a passionate young man
When someone is passionate about something, it becomes their talent or hobby. If they want to pursue that and make it more than a talent or specialty, they might make it their career. One talent that can easily be turned into a career is writing. There are a countless amount people who are passionate about writing and become authors or writers. An author, in particular who is excellent at writing and great at constructing solid arguments, is Malcolm Gladwell. In “Complexity and the Ten Thousand Hour Rule”, author Malcolm Gladwell constructs his argument that in cognitively demanding fields there are no naturals, by using anecdotes, quoting experts, and providing statistics.
Writing has always been a part of who I am and who I want to be. One of my first and favorite childhood memories in school was a classroom book writing project. Ever since I could write my name, I have kept a journal. In school, I always did well in English and thought I knew quiet a lot about it. However, since taking English Composition and Rhetoric this semester, I have learned that I did not know nearly as much as I thought I did.
I love and live to write. I have a fascination with words and their usage, along with the study of linguistics as a whole. I believe my unwavering passion for writing, which has continued for almost 30 years, gives me an advantage over other authors.
I love singing, I could sing in my sleep if I wanted to, I don't think I'm that good at singing, but people say I am. I also enjoy writing short stories and poems, writing is my way of expressing how I feel. I hope that one day, maybe I'll publish my own work.
Since a young age, I loved to read books and create stories. I recall a time when I could not read a particularly challenging book in my preschool age, so I made up the story myself. I feel that I am most content when I am at a keyboard, typing out an essay, or when I have a pen in my hand, scribbling out a plot line. I learned that, with my obvious love for writing, I wanted to put it to use and become a journalist. Being able to write is my salvation and allows me to have emotional validation, especially if there is something particularly interesting to write about. Being able to write creatively and structurally has been there for me whenever I was at my highest points or lowest points. Words are my medium in which expression is possible and using that, I dream of becoming a world class journalist.
Life is packed with harsh realities. Perseverance and direction is absolutely necessary, is the only thing we can control, and sometimes writing or poetry is a vessel to help us sort these sort of complexities out in our lives. These same sort of sentiments are expressed in some form or fashion in poetry. I used my life experiences, moments in time, and feelings when it came to writing my poems. These experiences served as beacons of expression and allowed for a clear direction in which I wanted the poems to go.
Writing is the tool I use to process my emotions and convey my feelings to others. Creative and freestyle forms of writing are what I enjoy. Writing has been a part of my journey for many years. I write a lot. I write often. Since I share some of my writings publicly on social media, I am regularly complimented on my writing. Some people go as far as to ask me to write a blog or even a book. Writing allows me to face fears, conquer trials, and learn more about myself and others.
