What I Want Other Writers to Know, by K.E. Creighton
I want other writers to know that writing is a process that will always require and demand some type of evolution–an evolution of words, our thoughts, our emotions, our imaginations. And that a piece of writing is never static or standalone, but part of an ongoing conversation with things written by other writers that become a part of who a writer is, what they believe, bleed, and end up writing about themselves. Writing requires an evolution of using and understanding language, to better understand one another and our world. So, above all else, one must be inquisitive and fully immersed in their writing in order to enjoy the process of it, and be unafraid of adapting and evolving alongside what they write and read.

Notes on Completing this Writing Prompt
Writing isn’t hard if you look at it as a process of evolution–something that requires you to constantly adapt– as something that you’re constantly learning how to do based on what you know, feel, and have read, as well as what you want to know, feel, and read. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and I truly think the only reason people struggle with writing once they’ve achieved basic literacy is that they think they need to know what to write first and that it needs to be perfect, instead of looking at writing as something you do in order to figure out what you think or feel about the world we live in and the people in it, as you evolve with the world and the people in it and what they write about regarding it too.
