Just Me Writing

To be able to write is a privilege, to be a good writer need lots of practice and require a lot of hard work. It is not as easy as it seems. It took me years to get to where I am today with my writing. I spent years looking back at everything I write, and just today I was told I could write well but still "A good journalist have to write perfectly."I could develop more and become better. I am not even close to perfect yet. I know. 
It began way back a couple of years when I wanted to improve my English writing skills.

It was difficult coming down to a country that have a different mother tongue. I hated writing at first and my primary school teacher would make me summarise stories in the newspaper to improve my skills.

I could write well but not good enough. I then started to write for fun, just for the sake of letting my imagination run wild. I imagine so many things that I was able to write nearly 50 pages in this old computer at home. It was filled with grammar errors and spelling mistakes but that doesn't stop me. As the old computer burned down, so did the story. 

One day, mom approached me and told me that I have to go back and read what I wrote and repair it myself to see how far you've come. I laugh at my own work and repair what I could.

It's amazing to think back that I was forced to write in English, and now I adore writing. It is not about the love to write, but the ability to express. It became my method of releasing stress.

Writing isn't that bad when you get used to it. It's another way of releasing thoughts. It's better than telling others of how I feel and think.
