Writing is…

by maggie christian

it started as a rough edition of a list that i found and have developed and added to.
(wikipedia definition: writing is the representation of language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system). it is distinguished from illustration, such as cave drawing and painting, and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual media, such as magnetic tape audio. writing most likely began as a consequence of political expansion in ancient cultures, which needed reliable means for transmitting information.) but here this list is more of a creative nature and philosophical. the images i choose to represent Writing is…give you an abstract as well as an informative travel through the many forms in which we take from our minds thoughts and the beginning of creativity and record them. enjoy the journey.

    Writing is saying what you want, when you want, how you want and the way you want it without being interrupted.

    Amazing post!

    • your addition to the list is marvelous. writing is both of them. you have to write , you want to write, you can’t stop writing. people who are not writers sometimes do not get it, how important it is to keep writing or you will be destroyed inside. i think one might even explode from the pressure buildup. writing is so electrifying for me and yet has such a calming effect at the same time.

      love your doctorow quote. really cracked me up. now using it as one of my email signatures. just love quotes to pieces. they are so concise and perfectly formed thoughts inside of themselves. at least the good ones are and this is definitely a good one. thank you. maggie

  3. Writing is a scrutinized form of communication. It’s more permanent than the spoken word. It’s a way of passing down information. It’s a way of recording events, history, memories. Writing is an essential form of communication for businesses, relationships.. and just about everything. For me, writing has a part of everything.

  4. Awesome post! If you have the time I would be grateful if you could do a guest blog for our site on the topic of writing. It could be advise,your trials and trebulations,getting started or any tips and tricks you have. Minimum 400 words. Two back links will be available for you in the post (linking to your site if you wish) and a byline for you as the author.
