  • I am Writing Blindly
  • My Eyes Are Now Open
  • "To Write is to Live"
  • Storyboard By: Anna McLauchlin
  • If I Were Sinking in a Submarine
  • After I read this article, it made me realize that the papers I was writing were more than just an assignment I received in class, they were to express my feelings and views on a topic.
  • Our Instinct to Write
  • In the article the author states "To write is to live". To me this shows how important writing is. It is so important that it is what controls your life. Without writing, we would have nothing to live by. There would be no trace of history, records, or anything that showed life.
  • Communication is Key
  • In the article the author uses examples of near death experiences and explains that the victims last instinct was not to panic but to write their last messages down to loved ones, not knowing if they would receive them or not. If I was sinking in a submarine I would write a letter to my parents expressing how much they meant to me and how thankful I was to have had them as my parents. I would also tell them to take good care of my dog, because I would miss her just as much.
  • We first find the need to write when we want to relay a story that is already in our head. This instinct comes when we are very little.
  • In the article, the author states, "Writing has been so important in America, I think, because communication is the soul and engine of democracy." This has been true for America from the start.
