What Does Writing Mean to You?

Emily Adofo, Editor

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


 

I have been apart of Blueprint for three years now I believe. I started my sophomore year when I took a News Lab class taught by Mr. Loo. That class made me fall in love with writing, and the elegance that comes with putting words on a computer screen or piece of paper and making them come to life. I had realized that the way a person writes can start to draw a certain audience. And as a writer you start to form a unique style that becomes uniquely yours. In that class I had gained my writing style, and voice as a writer. I was determined then to become a writer, and I was determined to become a great writer. I still had a long way to go, and I still do have a long way to go, but I was indeed determined. 

Blueprint has always been a club that I value. When I started I tried to attend every meeting, and write as much as I could. Throughout the years I joined other clubs, and became involved in other things. It saddens me to say that Blueprint did indeed fall to the back burner of my life not too long ago. I stopped writing, I stopped caring about my career as a future writer, and I was focused on what I thought to be “more important (social) things” in my life. I attended the sports games, and the rallies, and the student events at Blaine but I lacked to find the story within the event. I stopped looking for the story. If Mr. Loo is reading this latest article, he may have already pieced together that it is my last chance at redeeming my grade in his class this tri. No I am not trying to suck up to you right now, but I will say this. As a teacher you and Mr. Banse have taught me that writing is a great tool to use as freedom of expression. You have taught me that it’s ok not to be the best at something like writing at first, but to have patience that it will come. Most importantly you have helped me grow as a writer and I will forever be grateful for that. Like I said, I am most certainly not trying to suck up to you right now.

My point in all of this is, that ironically it took me until now to realize that some things are more important than others. Somewhere along the way I lost track of that mindset, and I hope you will bear with me as I find my way back to being the dedicated writer that I once was. Or if you happen to think this is just a big load of crap, well that is fine too. If other people happen to be reading this article the moral of the story is that if you ever lose your way – writing is a good way to find yourself again. Writing just a simple post it note to yourself, or writing a story, or whatever it may be. Just write. Everything else will have a way of working out in the end.
