Who Am I As A Writer
Do you ever wonder who you are as a writer? I do…like now for instance. Pen and paper can be a man’s best friend. Once it is written, it is your choice on whether or not you want to expose your personal thoughts with the world or to simply just store them away for personal use. When it comes to writing of any sort, I tend to let my mind control my fingers, and allow my fingers and emotions to control the paper. Getting involved with my writings and relating it to me or my life is the only way to keep my interest in the topic. From experience I have found that grasping your audience’s attention and receiving feedback in regards to writings are very important.
When it comes to writing I feel that the writer should develop some type of relation with the topic. Growing up in elementary, middle, and high school, we focused on daily journal writings. Teachers mainly wanted us to practice our free write skills just as a form of busy work in order to be able to prepare the lesson play for the day. In my opinion, I feel that journal writing has expanded my ability to think beyond what’s inside the box but, I still have an organization problem when it comes to formal writings; therefore once the relationship is developed it won’t be as difficult for me to elaborate on the topic.
When I am comfortable with the relationship that I have developed with the topic, I may also have the opportunity to grasp a great interest for whoever the audience may be. Keeping your audience interested is perhaps one of the key factors in writing because not only do I write for myself, but for my audience as well. That does not necessarily mean I add extras to what I am writing, but I attempt to engage in how my audience may feel or react to what I am saying. When my audience gives me feedback, I feel like I am able to discuss my mistakes without a problem, or even elaborate on a point that stuck out to them.
