Who Am I As A Writer


I am a writer. That’s who I am. It’s what I do. And I love it. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I would always make up stories and write them down. I was never without a notebook and a pen. And I still have some of those early stories today. They’re not great, but they’re a reminder of where I started and how far I’ve come.

These days, I write mostly non-fiction. But no matter what genre or form I’m writing in, my goal is always the same: to connect with my readers and to make a difference in their lives.

I believe that everyone has a story to tell. And it’s my job as a writer to help them tell it. Whether I’m writing an article, a blog post, or a book, I always approach it with the same level of care and attention. Because every story matters.

For a long time, novels have been a part of my life. When I stayed over with my grandparents, they would require me to read to pass the time. We were required to meet a minimum reading goal each semester throughout middle school. This gave me an unwilling attitude towards books at first. Highschool saw a significant shift in my perception of books. I was introduced to books that I liked and were compelling during my senior year.

I realized that books were a way to explore different worlds without ever having to leave my room. I’ve always had a knack for writing. In elementary school, I was the go-to person for help with essays and papers. My friends would come to me for help understanding their assigned readings. I wasn’t always the best at following directions in school, but when it came to writing I had a clear vision. Words have always come easily to me. Even now, as I’m writing this, the words are practically flowing out of me onto the paper.

I am passionate about writing and I hope to pursue it as a career. Writing is a way for me to express myself and connect with others. It’s a way for me to share my thoughts and feelings with the world. I hope to use my writing to make a difference in the world.

H.P. Lovecraft had a significant influence on my writing career. I was enthralled by the eldritch horrors when I perused the intricate variety of words. Reading about the cosmic beings and sheer madness in certain of his works intrigued me. The concept of being able to tell a tale while employing an uncommon technique to communicate it appeals to me. During their descent into lunacy, some of the characters have amazing detail.

The way he is able to describe their surroundings and the events that are happening to them is what I aspire to do as a writer. To be able to show the descent into madness, or any other plot line in such a detailed way would be an amazing achievement for me.

I also enjoy writing in a more light-hearted way. I find that often times, life can be quite stressful and overwhelming. Being able to sit down and write a story that makes people laugh or feel good is something that I really enjoy doing. It’s a nice break from the reality of everyday life. I think that everyone needs a bit of escapism now and then, and writing provides that for me.

So overall, who am I as a writer? I am someone who loves to tell a story, whether it be dark and Lovecraftian, or light and fluffy. I think that writing is a great way to escape from the stresses of everyday life, and I hope to continue doing it for many years to come.

I found the energy and strength that comes from engaging in a debate about an issue over which you feel strongly to be invigorating. The majority of the papers in that course were quite brief; they mainly consisted of how we felt about a certain topic. These civics courses are one method I learned to conduct research. During that time, I began conducting significant amounts of research. My favorite activities are mostly competitive.

I like to be the best at what I do, so in order to win, I need to know everything about my topic.

When I was in fifth grade, one of my favorite classes was Writer’s Workshop. We would spend an hour or so every day writing and then the rest of the class period would be spent discussing what we wrote. I loved that class because it was a safe place to share my thoughts and feelings without being judged. That class is when I realized that I loved writing.

I’ve always been a competitive person. In high school, I was on the varsity debate team. We would compete against other schools in the state. Debating taught me how to think on my feet and how to argue both sides of a issue. I also took a few civic courses, like government and economics.

I found the energy and strength a person gets when they debate a topic they feel strongly in is invigorating. Most of the papers in that class were very short, they were mainly just describing how we feel about a certain subject. These civic courses are one way I learned to do research. I began doing a lot of research during that period. Not only did I research political matters, I did research in my own personal free time. Most of my hobbies are very competitive.

I like to be the best at what I do, so in order to win, I need to know everything about my topic.

That love for research has carried into my college career. I’m currently a double major in Political Science and History. I love learning about how the world works and how it got to be the way it is today. I’m also minoring in English because, as you can probably tell, I love to write.

I hope to use my writing skills to inform people about the issues that matter to me. I want to use my knowledge to help make the world a better place. That’s who I am as a writer.
