Max Rysztak: Reading to Rewrite

As somebody who reads to rewrite, I think I write with the goal of rewriting things I disagree with. With the “Why I Write” essay, I feel that my writing (which is typically argumentative in nature) is most often in an attempt to correct the arguments I tend to disagree with. I say that writing is a means by which I can pursue my broader goals; I write almost in a competitive nature, perhaps to have the best argument possible. I think it highlights a deeper competitiveness within myself, and as a “self-described talented writer”, writing may be my way of competitively reaching my goals.
