When I think of writing, my mind goes blank. Does anyone really know what the word “writing” exactly means?
People write because they feel an emotion: happy, sad, angry. They write because they have to at school, college, university, or work. I write because it takes me on all kinds of journeys. Right now, when I think of it, my mind goes into all kinds of directions because writing builds up amazing thoughts in your head, which make you want to write even more.
As I write this article, I don’t know if it sounds good or not, but my fingers tap the keys effortlessly because this word–writing–holds a lot of importance to me. To you. To the whole world.
A quote that comes into my head when I think of writing is, “Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.” Without writing there would be no letters, no symbols, no books or stories for us to read. Life would be meaningless.
Writing. It’s a powerful word.
