Everyone says that they love math because there is always an answer. There is a right. There is a wrong.

And the world keeps on turning.

It is for the exact opposite reason that I love writing. When you write, there is no right answer. there is no wrong answer. You cannot be degraded or made fun of bacuse you made a mistake. Writing is personal. Writing is pouring your emotions onto a peice of paper and knowing that your answer is write. All the time.

Writing is more than just words. When you write, you share with the world your thoughts and emotions. You make people smarter. You save part of the past. With math, you are simply repeating what has already been done.

But when you write, you create something bigger than yourself.

And maybe, because of your words, you will stop the spinning of the earth.

If only for a moment.

That was really beautifully written. I agree with everything you've said. Writing is wonderful because it isn't math. It isn't right. It isn't wrong. It just is. You're a talented writer.

The world is not black or white we paint in shades of gray. Although you can be degraded, ever heard of a critic.
