Practice

For almost any activity, from sports to writing someone starting out is told to practice, practice, practice. This is most often met with a “yeah, sure.”. Recently I looked back at some of my writing from four years ago (letters home) and compared them to ones from my last month at college.

Since I have been writing these every week since the start of Freshman year I have had plenty of practice, and it is quite visible when comparing two documents fours years apart. While I am sure there has been some influence in vocabulary and grammar since I started college due to writing papers, if I had not practiced at letter writing they would still likely be disjointed narratives with no flow or interest.

I have not looked back at any of my old blog entries (it has almost been a year) so I don’t know if there would be any dramatic changes yet. Maybe in a few more years will I have seriously improved at this.

Meanwhile all I can do is practice.
