Writing Experience ~ The Fun Adventure

Updated on July 6, 2010

Written language is an amazing form of communication. Through putting our words on paper we can make others believe in distant lands or future conflicts. We have the ability to convey messages in a manner that makes others bubble with excitement or weep with sorrow. Our written language is powerful; so much so that we have written rules and laws to guide us. For me writing brings me joy because it allows me to place my thoughts into a message that I want others to understand.

This is a pic of my husband in Iraq the day our 3rd son was born. The soldiers had a "welcome/congratulations" party for him.

I profoundly remember the first time I wrote a book; I was in the seventh grade.  We had an assignment to write and illustrate a children’s book for the second grade class library.  I eagerly completed the assignment and, as every good student does, turned it in to my teacher. I really did not think anymore about it.  Some time later, my teacher called me to her desk and said that all of the second graders absolutely loved my book.  You can only imagine the surprise and excitement I felt. Ever since then, I have enjoyed writing.  Reports, essays, letters, you name it, I really liked writing it.

My next big writing adventure happened many years later, when I had my third child. My husband was sent away on deployment with the Army so he was not there for the birth or the first year of our child’s life.  Saddened by this fact, I began to think of a way that I could have him still share in the joys of our child’s first year. I remembered that I have always had a passion for writing for children. Thus, I began writing letters to my husband as if they were written by our son.  I went into great detail on every monumental moment of our son’s growth. From little things like smiling to big things like rolling over for the first time, my son told his father everything, and with enthusiasm I might add. I wrote these letters every month and loved the writing and the creativity that went along with it. Most of all, I enjoyed being able to share our son’s activities with my deployed husband.

Although writing can be challenging at times, I thoroughly enjoy writing and I look forward to anything that I can write about.  I feel that I can get my feelings down on paper sometimes better than I can speak them. I hope to send a message in everything and anything that I write.  Each person who reads my writing will gain insight into my life and beliefs.

      Dawna . . .Voted up and all across on this touching hub. My first writing was 8th grade English. Our substitute, a preacher, a Mr. Thompson, instructed us to just use our imaginations and write a clean story about whatever we chose. I did. Six pages later, I was still going when Mr. Thompson, said it was time to turn in papers. I met the writing bug again in 12th grade. And again in 1975, 1984, 1988, 1990-2000 the years I spent in our local newspaper. I am now diabled at home. I Love hubs for helping me to NOT miss my colums, and help me to meet more-talented writers like yourself. And since your profile doesnt have a Contact Dawna button...please read my Note of Thanks to you. (and feel free to write me anytime. About anything. I love to get emails that challenge my creativity, but not too complicated. Thanks) . . .A SINCERE THANK YOU for following me. I am very new to Hubs, and I ask that you be patient with me as I learn the in’s and out’s of hubbing. I VALUE my followers and I shall NOT take YOUR Warm Gesture for granted. I will also write hubs that will be educational, entertaining, a bit dramatic and many times funny. But NOT negative, abusive, or demeaning. If any any time my hubs offend or upset you, simply tell me then and I will remedy the situation pronto. Again, THANK YOU! Sincerely, Kenneth, (my real name. I didn’t know that we could use catchy titles.
