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!
