I think there are many kinds of writers. Some write in their second language, some write the exact words in their heads and others are more meticulous about every word they dot down. I love reading pieces on all these styles and I honestly think anyone who knows how to think in the form of words can write.

I like writing as a form of therapy more than as an actual piece that I’d want to share with the world, so I don’t think about whether it’s comprehensive or not to an audience. In school, I wouldn’t get raving reviews from my teachers on the things I thought were my best bits, and it made me think I was just born talentless. Hopefully, teachers will accept different types and styles of writing when it comes to creative pieces, because this way writing can encourage and become a tool for younger people to express in words all the things inside their heads.
