A Better Writer

I keep on staring on my computer for hours now, but nothing would come out. I tried to write a sentence or two, but I keep on erasing them in the end.

writeI kept staring on my computer for hours now, but nothing would come out. I tried to write a sentence or two about the subject I’m working on, but I keep on erasing them in the end.

Back in high school, it’s just so easy for me to write. It’s just so easy for me to put my thoughts into words. Well, relatively easier as compared to right now–college. I used to write for my school paper, producing at least 3 articles in 2 weeks; and proud to say, I always try and do meet my quota. I knew during those times that I would be venturing in a course that would require me such skill. And I did. UP Manila’s Orcom opened its door for me to fulfill that dream. But it was never really easy. The works always expect an extra effort, returned papers are not always free of bloody-red marks and scratches, and blank screens became more intimidating.There were times when frustration would just eat me up. But I choose not to give up. I will not stop writing, making mistakes, and learning from them. Even if I did improve my writing, I will still go on.

    Even though we are Communication Majors, it does not necessarily mean that writing is and should be easy for us. Actually it’s really hard since we need to live by the expertise of being an ideal OrCom student.

    i can relate with this very well. this house believes that expectations stun a person’s ability to write expressively. πŸ™‚
