I find this touching.
I feel writing has a lot to do with understanding. Let me take you back. I was in the fourth grade. Ever heard of UIL Ready Writing? I felt a passion for writing then but for some reason felt I was revealing myself by writing. I being in the fourth grade immediately felt afraid and made myself want to dislike writing altogether. Disliked it majority part of my life.
You can understand so much about an individual by the words they mention. A book for example. You're reading a story book. Yes, interesting story. But take into consideration of reading it from a different view point. You can learn something about the author this way.
I hope I'm making sense to someone.
