erik created the topic: Writing
Writing is a medium of human communication that represents language and emotion with signs and symbols. In most languages, writing is a complement to speech or spoken language. Writing is not a language, but a tool developed by human society. Within a language system, writing relies on many of the same structures as speech, such as vocabulary, grammar, and semantics, with the added dependency of a system of signs or symbols. The result of writing is called text, and the recipient of text is called a reader. Motivations for writing include publication, storytelling, correspondence and diary. Writing has been instrumental in keeping history, maintaining culture, dissemination of knowledge through the media and the formation of legal systems.

As human societies emerged, the development of writing was driven by pragmatic exigencies such as exchanging information, maintaining financial accounts, codifying laws and recording history. Around the 4th millennium BCE, the complexity of trade and administration in Mesopotamia outgrew human memory, and writing became a more dependable method of recording and presenting transactions in a permanent form.[1] In both ancient Egypt and Mesoamerica, writing may have evolved through calendrics and a political necessity for recording historical and environmental events.

I write every day, regardless of whether it's a paper for American Literature, a rousing statement to help me as the day progressed, or a section for my novel. To not write would feel unfamiliar to me. Without words, I would be lost. I'm a scholar, and to desert words is to forsake some portion of what makes me entirety.
I utilize words in such a large number of various ways. They are my methods for communicating troublesome feelings, investigating the internal scopes of my psyche, and basically are a method for i***uencing me to feel and see more associated with others. Writing doesn't need to be the singular interest that everybody makes it out to be. I'm sufficiently fortunate to have made companions everywhere throughout the world through our mutual love of the written word. I have writing pals in England, Australia, Canada, and states all through America. We bolster each other in ways that non-author companions are not ready to.
