How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Writing

Writing For A Grade

When I wrote papers for my teachers, I wasn’t encouraged to write something interesting or entertaining. When I began writing on my own I was faced with the realization that if anyone was going to read my writing I had to make it fascinating. It seems like this would be one of the most basic things you learn when you are taught how to write, but it was the last thing on anyone’s mind. After spending my entire life practicing how to write I had never learned how to give people a reason to keep reading.

Making Writing a Routine

Another reason I believe I never enjoyed writing in school is you don’t do enough to get good at it. Ever time we sat down to start writing a new paper it was like a brand new experience. Every time we started I had to relearn how to write. Writing only starts to come easily when it’s a routine. This is something I’m still learning.
