Devon Beck- The Final Blog

Part one - My major is English and I plan on minoring in Creative Writing and professional writing. I want to be able to explain things better . When I write I want people to want to read more of what I'm talking about.  I feel like words can make an impact in this world. I feel like depending on what you write or say you could change millions of lives.  As I go on in college I want to get a better understanding of the different ways that stories have impacted our lives and our history.  I would like to read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I feel like as a writer I could learn a lot by reading her.  She is a classic. I feel like if you want to go into writing and be a better writer you have to learn from the classics. You may even borrow their techniques. She is one of the most influential writers of all time. Another book I would like to read is To Kill a Mockingbird. I feel like this is a book that all people should read.  It was once censored and to me that shows that people didn't want to read what she was saying. I feel like this book spoke truth. and that is something that this world needs.

Part Two- One of my goals is to write a best selling novel. I want to be able to write a story that change lives like to Kill a Mockingbird did.  I want my books to be translated into different languages. I want my books to be taught.  I want them to be made into movies.  I want to leave behind something that says I was here.  I know that this will be hard. I know that I will have to practice my writing but its something that I want to do. I feel like sharing our stories makes a difference. Sometimes we feel alone and as though we are the only ones going through certain problems and I want to show people that they are not alone. I want to show people that it doesn't matter what you go through you can come out and achieve your dreams. I have so many different things that  I could write about and I hope that I can publish them one day.
