Starting The Journey Of English Class
"Writing is a cop-out. An excuse to live perpetually in fantasy land, where you can create, direct and watch the products of your own head. Very selfish."
Writing for me is a way that i can expresses myself and show my true colors and I think. It shows what I love and why, why it is what it is. And who I am as a person, friend, family and as a writer.
In english class I am learning about showing vs telling. For me it sounds like writing from the heart vs just writing something on paper. Showing for me is when I write something that I want t share with the world like Scott Fitzgerald says that a writer writes because he has something to say not because he just wants to write something, it's because writing should be written with passion and love and the writer should care about what they wrote. In class we read the the book The House On Mango Street By Sandra Cisneros. I think that this book is such a great book because the author doesn't slap you with a giant fish. Well of course that's great. But in the writing language she writes with great detail and depth but does in a way that the reader as to fill in the blanks with what they think the author is trying to get across. Telling is more of an author just writing something on a paper. There wasn't really a point to it even if the writing was ok the would be no connection to the writing.
During class I have connected, understood and learn't new things and I think that there is nothing that we could have done better although I would really like to read the House On Mango Street and finish the book because I have fallen in love with the authors style of writing.
I really enjoy the blogging part of english as I find it my best and most fun way for me to expresses how I feel and what's going on in my life. I think that all English classes should set up blogs because its just a site. A site that turns in to something Immensely amazing and beautiful. But the most important thing about thing about blogs is that it come in an empty space I think. It like a sand box. You can build, houses, castle, dungeons, pyramids. You build from your background knowledge, you build from your experiences and you build about yourself that's why I love blogging.
It's your sand box, let the building begin and so will I!
The reason one writes isn't the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say.-F. Scott Fitzgerald
