Why I Write

Sophomore (College 2nd year) ・Literature ・MLA ・1 Sources

Writing is an important part of our everyday lives. Every day, people write to complete assignments, communicate with others, and share emotions that would be difficult to express otherwise. In contrast to Orwell, I did not really love writing (224). This is ironic coming from a prolific writer, but the fact is that my experience with blogging has been an intense rollercoaster with soaring highs and brutal lows. By chance, this experience has shaped me into the writer I am today, and for that I am thankful. My writing career began in grade school. At first, my writing was basic and rudimentary like the rest of my colleagues. However, I developed a keen interest in writing by watching my parents write letters. At the time, I could understand that writing is an essential tool for adults and it is for this reason I wanted to learn the art. As a young writer, I was optimistic in that I wanted to be someone who wrote stories frequently and kept a daily journal.
My first stories were a way of putting my thoughts into reality. All my stories were based on the 2001 American adventure comedy movie, Spy Kids. Ideally, I used the same plot for my stories: my best friend Peter and I would solve a mystery, defeat bad people, and save the world. A cliché but my teacher took notice and started reading my stories to the class. As a kid, this gesture was equivalent to winning a lottery. I was ecstatic, and my passion for writing grew abundantly. My mind was then decided that I would grow up to be a writer.
Similar to Orwell, I tried to abandon the idea in middle and high school (224). What my teachers at the elementary level failed to inform me is that as I advanced through the grades, writing would stop being fictional and fun. For instance, in high school, the writing was more about research and analysis. Such work did not provide any wiggle room for self-expression or creativity. Fortunately, I was able to adjust and adapt my writing style to succeed in more demanding tasks. However, it is noteworthy that my passion for stories was reduced to an all-time low. Academia almost caused a break up in the relationship that I had developed with writing.
A year ago, I was a freshman at ABC College. I had completed an English unit the previous semester, which involved a lot of academic writing like in the middle school. So as I stepped into my writing course, I had no idea what to expect. I was both surprised and exuberant to find out that the syllabus constituted a great deal of fictional work. Finally, after years of academic writing, I was back to writing about things that interest me. I could spend more time on such assignments and did not mind staying up until late nights. I ended up passing the course, and my tutor suggested that I submit some of my assignments to a literary magazine. Indeed, it was a struggle, but my relationship with writing has since been mend.
Besides the need to earn a living, my motives for writing have been due to aesthetic enthusiasm. According to Orwell, this type of writers takes pleasure in the beauty of the words and the world (227). These writers usually share their valuable experiences and tend to arrange stories in a way that pleases the reader.
I have also wanted to include political writing into my career. My starting point has been a feeling of partisanship and the need to raise people’s awareness. Orwell believes that this motive is important in an era of political revolutions like in his time. Today, writers are obligated to engage with various political concerns including terrorism, healthcare, and immigration. Thus, when writing, I may do so to expose lies in the society, draw attention to some facts and get a hearing on such concerns. This political dimension has added value to my work, which lacked a clear purpose.
Today, I can thankfully proclaim my unending passion for writing. Over the years, I have increased my writing involvement by becoming a blogger as well as a contributor to a local magazine. I have also shown interest in becoming a writing fellow by applying for the training. As for the future, I do not know what it holds; this hobby may as well become a successful career. I cannot look into the crystal ball, and thus it is best to enjoy the moment while it lasts. Lastly, I look forward to writing many more works that will leave a mark in the literature by addressing the ignorance and indifference that can doom the society to stagnation and mutual misunderstanding. I believe one day my stories will make an excellent book that can be emulated by many.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but GrabMyEssay.com is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
