This is a word near and dear to my heart because it is something, I do everyday. 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.

write (v.)

Old English writan “to score, outline, draw the figure of,” later “to set down in writing” (class I strong verb; past tense wrat, past participle writen), from Proto-Germanic *writan “tear, scratch” (source also of Old Frisian writa “to write,” Old Saxon writan “to tear, scratch, write,” Old Norse rita “write, scratch, outline,” Old High German rizan “to write, scratch, tear,” German reißen “to tear, pull, tug, sketch, draw, design”), outside connections doubtful.

For men use to write an evill turne in marble stone, but a good turne in the dust. [More, 1513]

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.
