Week 3 – Describe yourself as a writer. What kinds of things do you like to write about? What do you dislike? What is hard for you? What is easy for you?
Writing is one the ways that can help human expresses their feelings. As a writer myself, I love writing about my feelings, curiosity and all of the questions in my mind. Even though all of my questions will not be answered, writing all those could really calm myself down and make me satisfied enough. At least I didn’t drag some people along just to hear me brag. Also, writing could also be my voice, as sometimes my words are in there but no voice are coming out of my lungs. Despite all of that, what I dislike so much about writing is that I couldn’t find my time just for writing. I usually like to spend my time on outdoor activities or watching movies.
But sometimes writing is not my favourite thing to do. It is hard for me when I had to write about something I am not interested with. It was like my braincells could connect with one another. But of course, when I could write about what I want to, a whole essay could be done just in under 20 minutes! That is easy for me!
No matter you’re using a pencil, or a tablet to write, a little writing could never go wrong!
Describe yourself as a writer…
As a writer, I feel like I can easily go with the flow of the writing process and knock out an essay in a short period of time by just writing whatever comes to mind without it being a bad paper due to it being done fast. I always do my assignments in one sitting and the day that it is due. Many people call this procrastination and make it look like it is a bad thing, but this is the only way I can actually write and it is how I make my best work when I do it like this. I have been writing like this since freshman year of high school and I haven’t stopped doing it since. I haven’t turned in or written a writing assignment early in years. It is just how I do it and I can’t see myself doing it any other way.
