Just like drawing, playing an instrument, performing a dance, painting etc. are all arts so is writing. It seems a lot of people don’t realize this, because most of the time it is utilized for simple communications, and often it’s potential is taken for granted.
Writing is an art form which a person expresses themselves with non verbal words, with these words the writer is capable of taking his/her audience to another place, make them see/feel things, without drawing an actual picture.
Therefore, there isn’t such thing as a good or bad writing because writing is subjective like every other art form, it depends on who is spectating. What some thing is great, others may think is terrible and it varies from person to person.
With that being stated, I am really unsure the kind of writer I am, my writing varies from audience and purpose. If I’m writing for pleasure as i do here my writing is passionate and sincere. If i am writing for an internship I am a curious writer, because I often need to investigate and dissect the topic I’m working on like some sort of scientist.
Lastly for academics, I am an anxious writer because I feel as if I’m restricted and stripped from my authenticity and voice, in academia one does not often write for oneself which is how it should be but they write to impress another and when you write to impress another in a sense you are betraying the art. That kind of feeling gives me anxiety.
Nevertheless, I still practice my craft and never tell yourself you can’t practice it as well because of something a teacher/professor told you in school. There is no good or bad and if it’s what you love keep at it.
The best way to get to know a person is not by what they say about themselves, but what they say about the world, people and everything else. So if you want to get to know me there is no better way than just simply reading my work. It’s the window to my soul.
