Essence of Self

Writing for me is the essence of self. Writing is more than just watching ink flow out of a pen and onto a lined sheet of paper. The physical act of writing may be a simple task but the composition of thought requires a manifestation of self, one’s beliefs, and purpose. Thoughts and beliefs comprise the quintessence of being human. Opinions are more than just the premises of an argument. They affect actions and statements. Writing involves a sense of self-awareness that people affect each other in more than just a physical manner. Taking control of writing is recognizing what you value and what you want to place emphasis on in order to affect your audience. I write to speak.
