This is a word near and dear to my heart because it is something, I do every day. To write is the bane of my existence. If any of it is any good or not only others will decide. Without writing the human race would be doomed to repeat its gaining of the same knowledge over and over. However, by writing down our experiences and wisdom we can solidify them in the annuls of our understanding and growth. So, if you get a few extra moments today take the time to write something, be it a poem, a story, a letter, or simply your thoughts on your day.
Words for “write” in most Indo-European languages originally mean “carve, scratch, cut” (such as Latin scribere, Greek graphein, glyphein, Sanskrit rikh-); a few originally meant “paint” (Gothic meljan, Old Church Slavonic pisati, and most of the modern Slavic cognates). To write (something) off (1680s) originally was from accounting; figurative sense is recorded from 1889. Write-in “unlisted candidate” is recorded from 1932.
