Now, we all know that in any language that we speak there will always be words that will be hard to say and that there will also be words that are very old or deep and you don’t even know the meaning of it.

A Writer’s Experience: The School (ft. Shalom Crest Wizard Academy)

Almost every person in the world goes to school so that they can learn new things that they need for their future.

A writer also needs to go to school so that they can learn more about how and what should they write. Their grammar, the words they should use, the way they intermingled the words to create their work, and other things.

As any student who has fond memories of their school, I am proud to have learned from Shalom Crest Wizard Academy.

Since I am in a mood to talk a little bit of myself, then I will tell you a few things about me and the school I am currently learning at.

I have a lot of friends here in school, some who have been students since Kindergarten.

The area is cool, the the teachers are good, and I think the subjects that they teach are fine.

(Even though I kind of like to bang my head in the table sometimes with the amount of projects they give. I mean, who wouldn’t?)

What I like about most in this school though is that the students and teachers are very interactive. Meaning that the teachers are close enough to the students they wouldn’t mind asking for help when they need it, except when they’re very busy.

Moving on, writing is a form of art and in order to improve more you have to learn.

What better way to learn more than to go to school who has teachers that can teach you? Especially if you are a high school graduate and you want to pursue the dream of being an author or something related to Literature by  going to college.

Of course this is for the people who want or think they should improve more in their skills in writing. If you think you are already proficient enough as it is, then go ahead and create your own brand of literature.

But in my opinion, the best way of learning is from experience. Even though it kind of has a bit its own consequences. Like the people who really really criticize your work to the point that you want to punch them in the face.

Yeah. Those kind of people exist.

Anyways, I’m gonna wrap this up now.

Reminder! Think about what you want first before jumping headfirst because you wanted to.

It might come back to haunt you later.

Everything starts with your Imagination…

Imagination is a beautiful thing. This can be found in everyone’s minds.

Especially in the minds of young children.

This is where ideas come from. Our views of the world. And our fantasies, that sadly, is just in our heads.

(Especially when you have a fantasy between you and your crush. Ouch!)

But some people just don’t have… A much more colorful imagination.

The thing is, imagination is the first step of a person in his/her own journey to become a writer. Especially if you want to write and create stories of your own.

 

 

This is where everything begins.
