Thompson 1 Bo Thompson Professor Steiner English 134 1/11/09 To be able to write is a skill that people think can be taught, but it is a skill that one must obtain on their own terms throughout time and experience. Writing is a task which to some may appear simple; however, it is something of extreme difficulty. From the time when I first started writing my name, to my “prime” period of high school writing, to how I write today, there is a vivid history that I can recall very effortlessly. As similar to many kids, the beginning of my history as a writer commenced with first learning how to write my name. While many kids struggled to write names such as Michael and Jessica, I was the first to successfully write the very two letters which make up my rather simplistic name. With great caution and concentration my shaky hands scribbled two letters merely illegible, B…O. However, I do not see this as the beginning of my history as a writer. Instead I must fast forward to years later when I was introduced to the complexity of an idea called the “sentence”. This idea of putting numerous words together was not only new to me, but also something that I did not fully understand. What exactly is a verb? A noun? A subject? And who in the world decided to put all these things into one big jumble? My future as a writer did not look very bright.
