Why I Write Research Paper

Improved Essays
There are many reasons why I write. I write to share information with people. I write to stay in touch with friends and family although this is a rare occurrence; emailing or calling is much quicker. I write to reminisce about events in my life, both the important ones and the insignificant ones. I write in order to share these memories with others. I write so I can have a visual of all my ideas. I write because it is required of me. Sometimes I do not mind and other times I would rather watch paint dry. But the main reason I write is to have an escape. I write when I am upset, when I am joyous, and when I am indifferent to the world around me. Like most teenagers in their last year of high school, I disagreed with my parents weekly. They would yell, I would yell louder. They would not back down but I would eventually get so angry about the entire situation that I would storm off to my room. I would grumble under my breath on the way there about how “stupid” and “unfair” they were. Once in my room, I would sit on my bed and just vent to myself, out loud, about the horrible life I had to live. Then I would get tired of talking to myself and grab a notebook and a …show more content…
But it was not the same drained feeling I got after venting all of my anger. This is good though. Death is not something that one just deals with right away and then forgets about it. This tragedy will stay with me for quite some time. Eventually it will not consume my thoughts and cause me to look at life differently but it will stay with me in the back of my mind. Maybe years down the road when I am teaching a high school English class, I will give my students an assignment that brings this memory back to the front of my mind. Perhaps the next time I hear about the death of a young kid, who had his whole life in front of him, this memory will make its way back to the surface. If it does, I will reach for a pen and a piece of paper and

    I don’t know why I changed my writing style when I submitted my work, but a lot of the problems came from that. I try writing in a way so that my readers can see my point of view but not being distracted by the confusion that comes to life in my work. I know when I write that I tend to jump from one topic to another, but this is how I think. Usually I ask for a friend to review my work before I submit it but that does not happen all the time. I also jump around when I review my work so in my mind it makes plenty of sense.…

    I did spend days just not doing anything because I didn’t feel like. Somehow, I can tell that a couple years down the road it will just be a distant memory, not something that consumes all of my thoughts. I wish I would have dealt with other things in the past in a similar manner because I’m now able to see that resiliency isn’t just about moving on as fast as you can. It’s about coming to terms with everything, and moving on when you are…

    I took creative writing when it was offered. That course helped me understand the power that writing had, and still has, in my life. When I write, I am able to explore different parts of my mind that I otherwise would not want to explore. I know that when I write, I can save it for just me, and that gives me the freedom to feel safe enough to explore the dark corners I try to hide away from…

    As I went into high school I was placed in an after school program for students with difficulty in reading or writing. At first, being placed in this program I felt unintelligent and excluded from the rest of my classmates. I saw it as a punishment that I didn’t deserve and didn’t want to participate much. With time and the advice of the teacher I realized that I did need help and was able to improve my writing skills enough to pass the program and be integrated with the rest of my classmates. After completing the program and as I ventured into college I learned that reading and writing are extremely important.…

    With the short story, I was able to have pictures and background designs, which made the presence of the short story more appealing to read. I enjoyed writing the short story because I had more opportunities to be creative and give support to the paragraphs.

    In my case, the depression was coming soon. Once I came speeding down to the first dip in the ride was when my depression made its appearance.

Causing me to sit in my room at night gasping for breath in between each sob and thinking ‘I hate myself’ or ‘why do I have to be here?’. I could not be left alone at night because my thoughts would go to dark places.…
