Writing for me has always been a game, sort of a gamble so to speak. You have to gamble when it comes to writing to see if you’re going to hit the jackpot with this lottery of ideas in which to write about or you somehow manage to bust and learn from somehow manage to bust and learn from your losses and implement that strategy toward the new game, whether that be a second attempt or otherwise. I believe that in these moments of victory or defeat we realize how our writing has or can improve and which topics we are drawn to writing in general. In my personal experience, from writing short stories to beginning to write a novel, I believe my favorite piece must be the one I am currently writing which I would hope to finish and maybe even publish as a novel in of itself. I personally would love to be an author one day as well as an ELA teacher which would allow writing to continue to be a major factor in my life.

It would also keep reading a heavy factor in my life which I love to do. I personally love reading, especially different and varying forms of fiction. One of my greatest inspirations is the work of Robert Crais, a prize-winning crime fiction writer who authored my favorite novel, Hostage. This personally inspired me due to its elevated diction, attention to detail, and the unusual perspective that it gave of many characters both major and minor throughout the story. Crais manages to capture the audience’s attention with suspense and mystery in ways that I could only dream of writing. I believe that his writing is a prime example of how the written word can evoke emotions and feelings beyond the page and allow us to change our perspective about people whether fictional or real and how it can be used to persuade people to see unpopular opinions or to consider people who others may not be able to. These gambles can either flunk or fly and succeed which I believe is the exhilaration of writing in your own mind whether it be academic or creatively.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
