Why I Write

October 20, 2011 by

I write because sometimes my words sound better on paper than they do when I speak, or sometimes they don’t.  Writing pushes my limits, and it challenges me contemplate my ideas and beliefs further.  Writing censors my thoughts, and yet at the same time makes them more open to the world.  Writing is difficult for […]

I write because not only because I am required to, but also because my grades are quite reliant on it. Since a small child I haven’t enjoyed writing, maybe it was because I was never natural at it, or maybe because I never understood all the elements of grammar. But ever since I started attending […]

Why I write (Laurel Galaty)

I’ve come to the point in my life where with everything I read, I notice the craft. My favorite writers conceal the craft, and pull me so deeply into the writing that I forget that what I am experiencing is merely words on a page. A simple phrase, when well written, can give me chills, […]

Thoughts on Writing

Everything we know, everything we ever did know or will know, is all memories and perceptions and feelings. I don’t want these things to escape me. I want to remember things and record things and feel things. So this is why I write. Of course I write for assignments and for homework and all the […]

Write now, I’m being forced to write in a class taught by Mike Gwaltney. Gwaltney wants the class to write because it is national writing day. So, I shall write about option three ‘why I write’ for the next fifteen or so minutes. I write mainly as a form of communication, I’m a big fan […]

#IWriteForMyself

I like writing because it’s a way to reflect on life experiences, things you enjoyed, things that challenged you, and things that made your life better. Writing for fun is the best way to write because you’re not forced to stick yourself into a mold and write what others want you to. Growing up in […]

Writing for a Purpose

October 20, 2011 by

Why do I write? My instinctive answer: to communicate and share my thoughts. When I take interest in writing, mostly implying I am not being forced to, I stride to actually express what is on my mind. Forcing me to write on something I am not passionate about only allows me to create empty words […]

Writing has the power to be therapeutic. Whenever I am frustrated or sad or elated I can process my thoughts and feelings best through paper. I also love the fact that you can create a world other than you own and people who don’t exist, who you could never meet in real life, but interact […]

Why I Write Writing…

I write because it helps me articulate my thoughts and feelings on important subjects in an accurate and succinct way. When speaking, thoughts can easily become jumbled. Writing allows one to express their feelings in a creative manner that is exactly what they meant. I write because it helps reflect on experiences I have had […]

Writing is not fun

October 20, 2011 by

I really do not like writing. To be honest the only reason why I am writing right now is because my teacher is making me.  I find it really boring and it makes my hand cramp if I type to fast. I never write for fun. I don’t really like any type of writing. Essays, […]

Why Write?

October 20, 2011 by

I write because I have to. I do not like to write. Putting my thoughts on paper seems like a waste of time. I think writing makes me think about things in a different way, which is not always fun to do because it is really difficult. I find it hard to articulate my thoughts […]

A Chance to Change the World With Writing

The question really is, “Why wouldn’t we write?” Honestly we have so many ways to get our opinions out to the public that there is no reason we shouldn’t write. I find writing to be one of the best ways to submit myself to what I really am feeling. I can write down my dreams […]

Reasons for Writing

There are a lot of reasons that I write. Anyway I look at it, there’s no way that I would be able to make it with out writing. I believe this because there are so many tasks in life, one can’t keep them all locked up in their head, I’m pretty sure they’d go crazy […]

I write because it helps me sort out my feelings and ideas. I prefer to write more then I like to speak, because I feel that I can arrange my words better, and put them into sentences that are smooth and can articulate my point. I don’t like creative writing as much as research writing, […]
