To be honest the only writing I do outside of school is texting and when my parents force me to write thank you cards, other than that all of the writing I do is in school. It isn't that I hate to write it is just not my first choice of activities when i'm at home. When I think of myself as a writer I think of a river, in some areas rivers are nice and smooth then out of nowhere rocks begin to appear and the water gets rough and the currents are pulling in all different directions. When I write it always begins smoothly and the words seem to naturally flow onto the page. Then all of a sudden I hit a rough area, my words become jumbled and what I write doesnt make sense. Then a dam appears and blocks the flowing water just like it blocks the ideas flowing in my head. But finally i am able to overpower the dam and my ideas burst onto the paper, and that is how I am related to a river as a writer.
