Let’s start by defining writing: what is it?
It’s the act of converting intangible feelings, thoughts, and emotions into symbols that carry meaning.
Like a musician striking chords, converting his internal message into sounds that carry feelings, so does the writer with his words.
Isn’t it fascinating that with 26 letters – abstract symbols devoid of meaning – you can construct meaning and evoke feelings?
You can take raw material from deep within, process it into symbols, and then convey it into an external message that will eventually resonate in the internal world of another human.
It is indeed fascinating that whatever language you speak and no matter the number of symbols in the Alphabet of your native language, you can build those meaningless symbols into meaningful messages.
