#write2connect

Writing is a concept that is very universal. It has the power to connect people from all different walks of life. Without it we would be unable to communicate with one another. We would not be able to learn and educate ourselves. For me writing has helped me ever since I was younger. Things like learning to write my name and address are memories that I still vividly remember. They are things that are very important to who I am. Writing helps us to figure out our identity because it connects us to who we are. I can also remember how writing does and still does help me connect to loved ones. It is impossible for me to always talk to people I care about all the time. So whether it be a letter, e-mail, or even text; writing helps me to feel closer to them. In my life right now writing is helping me connect to what my future will hold. College essays and essays in general that I have to write are helping to determine what my tomorrow will look like. For the rest of my like I know that writing will be a very important presence.

Writing helps you connect by allowing you to read words that others have said and understand them, draw conclusions, and think about what they are trying to say. You can write something down to convey a message.

Writing helps me connect with other's because people can see how I feel about the world, and what is beneath the surface. Many people assume I'm a certain way because of my outer appearance, but aren't aware of the reasons why. When writing I can reveal those mysteries and help people understand why I am the way I am.

I've had people I've worked with never be interested in me or become surprised when they view thing's I've written. They are always shocked at how radical and unexpected my opinions, it's as if they don't expect me to be as smart as I sound. They don't expect be to have an opinions, because I'm so young. They don't expect me to understand things, or being able to recognize the ubiquity of things they call normalcy, as nonsense in my mind.

#write2connect

Writing and I have a very strange relationship. Whenever I’m feeling down, I usually write how I’m why I feel that way, who’s annoying me or whatever ticked me off during that moment. So, when I think about the concept of writing it connects me to moments that are not happy. However when I think deeper into the subject I realize that that isn’t always the case. I write everyday on Facebook, letters to family and friends that are in the armed forces, and journals during school. Writing lets me vent about how I’m feeling and it connects me to the people I care about. 

Writing on Facebook helps me connect to family and friends that I don’t see very often. Even writing letters helps me stay in contact with people that I can’t just pick up a phone to call. Writing keeps me connected to myself and to the people I care about. #write2connect.

Writing helps me connect many aspects of my life and then compile my ideas to the point where I eventually articulate them. Writing helps me reflect on the past, and look forward to the future. It also helps me connect things that happened, and things could've happened differently.

How does writing help you connect?

Writing helps me connect to myself. I usually write for myself because it’s a way of  expressing my thoughts and emotions. When I feel really sad, upset or happy, I write. The way I feel influences a lot in the way I write. Writing helps me connect with myself because I let out all the feelings I have and that makes me feel better. Sometimes I even discover things I didn’t know about myself through writing. It helps me think things through and make the right decisions. When I write for a public, I try to express my opinions throughout the writings. That’s a way of connecting with both myself and the reader.

DTuveson: How does writing connect you

Writing connects me with people through social media like Facebook. I mainly use writing to express ideas to people when there is some barrier keeping me from connecting with them personally. If the person I am trying to connect with is a teacher, that barrier is their inability to hear each student's thoughts quickly and at their leisure. 

The main connection created by writing is the ability to communicate complex ideas that cannot be represented another way. The way I use writing to connect with people is through the popular website Reddit and occasionally through Facebook. Although I don't write much, sharing words in a language common of others fosters a sense of interconnectedness.

Jtartaglia writing day

writing helped me connect all sorts of ways from writing stories for people top read to sending messages to update each other, writing helped me in compunction, it helps me figure out different words to use in social conversations, such as stases on face book to oral presentations in class. Writing is a big part of my life, although its not always productive or educational i use it in my everyday life. writing helped me learn how to read, because i learned how to write first, so while writing i learned more, its a gateway experience that is useful to just about everyone, its one of the greatest manmade thing there is out there.

RShaw What writing means to me.

Whenever I write, I get a look at what I really think. My mind is focused on writing something so much, that I get great ideas about whatever I'm writing about. Writing really helps me work better on things that I'm working on, if that makes sense. I don't really write in my spare time though, because I think that writing requires a lot of focus.

How does writing help you connect?

Writing is a way out for some people, to share, and or express emotions. It is a pleasure for some people, and others just use it in school. School writing is very important, and can usually be longer. On a daily basis, we write all the time to communicate with others. I use it sometimes when I need to say what's on my mind without telling a person. I journal in English class almost every day, and I also journal on my computer. Writing helps me connect to other people without telling them. I like writing to myself sometimes, but it doesn't always solve everything. Most of the time I end up telling a person in the end. Writing is import an to me, and I think reading helps me improve.

Write to Connect

Writing help me connect to others. That meaning that it helps me understand the perspective of another person. It helps me see the way the world revolves for them. How things work out and how things don't work out. It helps me see into the world and livelihood of the writer. Even if it's a fiction writing "you" can still see and understand the way the writer thinks.

I write a lot outside of class. I use words in order to communicate what i'm feeling. It's all written in a document. I have about five other documents full of feelings and full of things that happen to me all the time. Then another way of writing that we all use is texting, emailing, or writing letters. I use texting in order to communicate with friends and family. I use text to talk to others about projects and work we have to do. Then email is another way to communicate too. I use it the same way that I use texting. The same goes for letters.

​Writing has always been my way of saying what I really feel about a thing or person in my life. I've always felt more confident when I write, I know what I want to say and how to say it. In contrast, when I speak out loud, my thoughts and words get jumbled together and it doesn't come out the way I wanted. In my writing, I can take my time to find the perfect words to encompass the feelings I have.

Empleados federales vuelven a sus oficinas

Empleados federales vuelven a sus oficinas


¡El gobierno abrió finalmente! Después de dos semanas sin un gobierno, nuestra país abrió otra vez. Por los dos semanas cuando no tienen un gobierno, todos los parques y atracciones nacionales y sitios web y muchas otras cosas no funcionaron. Porque los parques, atracciones, y sitios web no funcionaron, los trabajadores no tienen trabajo también. Sin trabajo los trabajadores no pueden recibir salario. Esta vez, los trabajadores no pueden recibir salario porque el gobierno cierre y los trabajadores en congreso no pueden hacer un presupuesto. Por otro lado, cuando quien no va a  trabajar, el puede recibir salario.

Todos los atracciones, parques, sitios web, y oficinas federales trabajar otra vez y todos los empleados federales vuelven a sus oficinas y trabajadores. Por el país de los Estados Unidos, este significa que nosotros vamos a recibir más dinero de todos los atracciones turísticas. Cada dia que no fue gobierno, los Estados Unidos no recibia como dinero que el poder recibir con los atraciones nationales. Atracciones nationales importantes están la estatua de la libertad, el parque zoológico nacional, los museos del Smithsonian, y mucho más.  Hoy, nuestro gobierno trabaja con todos los empleados que el necesario y el congreso puede hacer decisiones como el tiene que.

Write To Connect

Writing has always been a way of expressing emotions for most people. Comfort can be found in simple words. Words can be depressing or cheerful as they speak of failure and success. I use words to drown myself in feeling, to numb myself from the pain, though I have issues conforming with my feelings. I either express my emotions too much or too little. Pages and pages sometimes can not depict what I feel, though sometimes just one sentence out my mouth is suffice. 

I do not write to connect with my ancestries, though I write to share my thoughts. I tweet, I blog, I text, I write. To simply show a desired notion, I write to please others, to get grades, I write to better myself and my understanding of the world. I write to educate others of the world, I write to share my knowledge. And sometimes I just write and write to write just because it gives me a feeling of contempt.

Writing makes me feel free, focused and blissful. It is my escape from reality, while also my touchstone to overcome what sometimes feels like too much reality. I write to connect with my emotions. My writing both feeds me and at times destroys me when I "fail" to achieve what I hope for in. Writing frees and nourishes my soul.

Writing is a form of expression. I use writing as a way to declare myself to an audience. Many times the audience is myself. I use writing to reflect, and to document my thoughts or feelings that I may not be in the position to voice or publicize. Writing is a form of art and it can pull one away from the real world. Writing is a hobby, but at times it also proves to be a huge challenge. Crafting a perfect piece has always been a difficult task for me and I often feel like the end of writing a strong essay is the best feeling of accomplishment. However it's the process of writing the essay or piece that makes the entire writing experience worthwhile.

Writing gives you the power to connect to the voiceless, for their voices will now be heard through you.
Writing allows you connect your story with others, do you find any similarities? 
Writing asks you to become emotional, confide in that piece of paper and pen.
Writing pushes you to finish that College application, that high school paper, or that resume for your future career.
Writing provides you the tool to chat with old friends, distant relatives, or that crush you can't go a minute without thinking about.
Writing tells you that your conscious is only a temporary holder for your intelligent thoughts "Share them!"
Writing is your present, past, and future. Connect!

If it wasn't for writing, I don't think that many people would know who I really am and why I'm the way I am. When I write, whether it's for an assignment or just for fun, I tell a story within a story. I could write about something real random or crazy, but it still has some kind of connection about me and who I am. If people read the things I write, they could learn a lot about me. Writing helps me to express myself to other people and also to me. My writing helps me to connect to people because I write about the things people know about, something they can relate to. These writings are normally about my life or things I see everyday. My writing can sometimes help entertain people whenever their bored. But other than trying to connecting to people I don't know, my writing connects me to my family and to myself. When I write to my family it is to tell them how thankful I am and how much I care about them, something that will let them know how I really feel about them, things I can't say. Lastly, I write to myself to express my feelings. Whenever I'm upset I write, whenever I'm happy I write. Writing is a part of me and without it I don't think that I would be sane. Writing helps me to connect to other people and that's how they connect to me.

Write2Connect.

I write to connect to a lot of different things. One thing I write to connect to is my inner self. When I need to get my feelings out and I don't want to talk to anyone I write them on paper and then eventually start to feel better. I also write to connect to others. Like for example, thanks to English class and writing journals I connected to a lot of people in my class who I never would of that I connected to.


I also write to connect with family. There are people in my family that I don't get to see often, I write to them all the time. Whether it is on the internet or texting, we still connect. Even with friends and family I do get to see often we still write to each other all the time. Writing connects me to a lot of different things.

How does writing help me connect?


Writing helps me connect my thoughts in ways I can't express verbally. It helps me share ideas with others that can be interpreted in thoughtful ways. Writing helps me connect with other readers and writers that I have never thought that I would connect with.

I write to connect with myself, and to get what I feel, or to get my opinion based statements out on paper. It actually does help me during the day. I've learned to channel my aggression, and anger into my writing, and focus on tapping in my fullest potential.

National Day on Writing

How does writing help you connect?

It connects the years together by showing the history of the past. 20 years ago some people are still alive but 1,000 years ago all the people are dead and gone. There is no way to know how it was back then. Only but so much can be left behind. Objects don't show detail about how life was if all the people are dead. The writing of the people 1,000 years ago shows the details, feelings, and way of living. To go even further the writing of ancient civilizations can show what happened during those times. It might be harder to translate and understand but that is a major connection to history. The many different time periods you can visit just by reading what was left behind. To the walls of an ancient ruins to the pages of a lost journal all share some history. With out these ancient writings the past would be lost.

Write to Connect

I write to connect my life to others. I share my experiences through texts and thought to them to spark their new ideas. I connect writing to my family, I feel that I come from a family of poets they're always writing they never seem to run out of words. I connect to my emotions to my writing, I can relax and get my feelings out with words. I write to connect to my inner talent as a writer, to challenge myself to be better than what I am.
