Writing

Writing is an expression. It’s an art.

I value writing greatly, like it’s a part of my life. In fact, it is a big part of everyone’s life. The question is how big a part?  I cannot say I write incredibly well, but I guess it is of a fair standard, i don’t know, you tell me :)

Writing fiction has always been my dream, ever since I was a wee little thing in grade 3. Back then, I was mesmerized by a little piece of creative writing my friend had conjured up out of imagination. The term ‘writing’ to me had since then had become glorified. The awe and curiosity grew into interest and passion. There were 3 of us bizarre ones who took this common interest up as a hobby, we made a vow to grow up to become writers someday. Whenever I think of that, I laugh :D Not because I think is foolish or puerile, but because I am amused that this dream has lasted for so long!

My mother had told me that a kid’s ambitions will change, that where our passion lies cannot be determined at such a juvenile age. I believe that she is right, only that the 3 of us are exceptions :) It’s been 5 years since I made that vow, and though countless magnets pull me in all directions, I find my heart still where is was <3 Now, whenever my English teacher releases a new writing assignment I leap with glee amongst collective sighs from my classmates :D

I think writing is not just the words. Writing is not just black and white, it’s not just the compositions you write for primary school, it’s not just the book you read for literature. It’s about ideas and creations. It’s about expression, exposition, exploring a new world, without caution or calculated decisions.

That’s what I love about writing! It’s so free and expressive! Like what I said- Writing is an art! But instead of paint and brush, it’s ink and parchment… or in this case, keyboard and computer.

I would feel like a lost dog without writing.

On a brighter note, writing for this blog will not only allow me to receive comments and opinions from you guys, it will improve my writing! It will allow me to see things from YOUR perspective! It will widen my view, broaden my horizons!

Please don’t be harsh on me, haha!

  1. Hi Jodette!

    Thank you for your follow and encouraging comments…I am glad they led me here because I love connecting with fellow wordies (that’s a fine starting list you have there!) and it’s also exciting to see this blog in its early stages. I have a feeling many good things will come from here :)

    I admire what you’re doing here and I look forward to reading more!

    Best,
    Julie

    1. Many thanks Julie!

      You’re right about early stages, I’ve only had this blog for a while but I’ve constantly been eager to share my creations with others, especially with an audience that love writing as much as I do. I’m so glad you took the time to check this site out, really appreciate that!

      I’m in middle school now, just embarking on this journey of writing and experimentation. So I’m really keen on learning more about writing as a whole, and I feel there’s a lot to be enlightened from you and your blog, I especially admire your writing style and discussion ideas!

      So I guess we’ll be hearing more of each other? :D

      Best wishes,
      Jodette

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking a couple of my posts, namely “Facing My Giant” and my ‘resume.” But even more than that, your sweet comment really touched my heart and humbled me. I appreciate you taking the time to write. :)

    We have something in common: you want to write fiction and I want to write a children’s book someday. I truly hope your dream comes true! By the looks of it, you are off to a swell start! God bless you on your journey! :)

    1. You’re welcome, but it was my pleasure to read your beautiful blog :)
      High-five, fellow wordie :D, writing a children’s book is a lovely dream, I wish you the best of luck in achieving it!
      Thank you for commenting <3

      1. Thanks so much! It’s a slow beginning but hope to pick up the pace soon. I am looking to sign up for a writing class next term and maybe that will give me a boost toward a more clear direction on where I’d like to see my story go.

        Take care! :) – J.C.

  3. I have finished a book, my very own, in all its 52,557 word glory!!! (Yes, I have the word count memorized. Call me obsessive. Call me a geek. Call me whatever you want, that won’t change a thing. 52,557 words and 172 pages.) And I totally agree: writing isn’t just words on a page. It’s a way of expressing yourself, it’s a way of showing the world who you are. It’s a way to bring a completely new world to life. I swear, my dreams are typed, my theme song follows the tune of clicking computer keys. I discovered writing in 4th grade. I haven’t abandoned it since. Fingers callused from pencils, shoulders cramped from being at a desk so long, countless rejections, and that day when your whole career takes off and soars for the skies…yeah, it might sound insane. But that’s my dream. Writing and I, we just are. Rejection? Yeah, terrible, publishing is a nightmare. I just started the process. Rejection is horrid, but you know what? I didn’t right this thing to have someone I don’t know love it. I wrote it because I love it. So, you know what? I totally agree. Writing isn’t just words.

    1. Hi! :)
      Congratulations on completing your book! I really admire how you are so committed and passionate about writing.
      I really agree with you! Everyone has a story, and as the words flow, that story in you shows. We write to share but mostly we write for ourselves.

      Thanks for sharing!
