I, like many other applicants, am surfing my way through endless career options, trying to find my niche. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and something that I am naturally good at. Not great, but good enough to be accepted among the grammar Nazis of the world. Shoot, sometimes I can be one too. Everyone has their flaws. There is a saying however that reads, "the pen is sometimes mightier than the sword." Or at least I think thats how it goes. I have always placed an inexplainable value of the words that people use and how they use them. For instance, how its possible that certain words placed together in a sentence can lift someone up, but can just as easily tear them down. A simple explanation is the thought behind what is said, and how much meaning the recieving person attaches to it. Because after all, words are only words, until they mean something. That's what writers do. It's one of their many purposes in life as a creator of stories. As the holders of the keys to a limitless imagination, its a writer's job to give otherwise meaningless words, life so to speak. I would love to get better at it. I'm ready to find my purpose in life again, and not lose focus this time. This definitely seems promising.
