According to the dictionary, writing allows us to express opinions and ideas. It is an activity, a skill. It is a way of telling stories, or voicing our views. Through writing we can share our thoughts, expand our minds and spark our imagination. Writing is a process, whereby letters are assembled into words, then put together to form sentences and ultimately, create meaning. With writing one can persuade, convince or suggest. However, we as individuals write for many reasons. Whether we are writing to inform, to reflect upon our day or to create new and unforeseen worlds for everyone to explore, writing builds bridges between people. It opens up our world and broadens our horizon.

 

To some people, writing means having total freedom to speak their minds. A journal can keep a secret, it will never frown upon you and it will never delete your stories. It listens and holds onto your thoughts. When words are used to clarify an idea, or to communicate what is too difficult to articulate, it’s a relief. Writing lets you process the day and is a valuable tool for reflection. “I write to revisit my thoughts.” Some people write because it provides a path for thinking. It is a momentary escape from our busy lives; it is a venture into our minds. Here we have the possibility to be explorers, to revisit old friends, find new places and nurture what we thought were long forgotten dreams.

Writing gives liberty to the imagination. It lets you escape one world, and lets you fall into other worlds. Places that only exist within your mind, can be unfolded and vividly described in such a convincing manner, that others might start to envision the same. “As a writer, I can create something in the minds of people. Through writing I can experience smells, sounds and feelings and eventually, share these with others.”
Through writing we can connect. With ourselves or with others. The world of writing really has no boundaries and technology aids us in communicating fast, across nations. But writing takes time and dedication. Although typing is convenient, handwriting is unmistakably much more personal. It represents a movement, it mimes time. “I like how individual, unique almost, everyone’s handwriting is. No letter is ever the same.”

Writing is very visual. It invites the mind to run off at a tangent, down a path of imaginary wonders and back again. But writing, in its purest form, is visual because it transforms abstractions into language. It’s tactile, and all of a sudden, it’s right there in front of us. By sharing our ideas and thoughts, we learn from each other. And by using pen and paper as an extension of the mind, we can create meaning. We all hold the potential to tell stories. Whether we choose to voice them or not, we are all writers and contributors to the world of writing.
