Don’t be afraid of a challenge
By Emma Palova
Lowell, MI- Who doesn’t like a good challenge? Writing is not challenging for me. Writing is a way to express myself, my feelings, my thoughts and to deliver a message.
It doesn’t always have to be writing for the sake of information.
I started writing in grade school. Later, in prep school we had to write compositions in Latin. I remember the one about the Cyclops. I got a C on it and rightfully so, I didn’t know what they were talking about. I only know that they had one eye in the middle of the forehead.
But, it taught me a lesson that writing in any language is good for you. You let go of your feelings and take part in life.
Imagine what the world would be without books. I lost focus long time ago, because it all goes into my writing. I can manage to read blogs and short stories, but no books. That’s the price you pay after years of writing. I’ve written in English and in my native Czech language. I’ve written in French as well and in Latin.
I have no regrets. Writing challenges have taught me the discipline of every day writing. The challenges also prove to you that you can write on any topic presented and at any time of the day.
It doesn’t have to be a long piece either to deliver the message. I prefer to the point writing and not beating around the bush.
Who has the time to contemplate a 100-page paper?
My advice to anyone who is afraid of a challenge is to stand up to it and say, “Hello what can I do to help out?”
I feel that by writing every day I am helping someone else achieve the same goal.
