According to Thomas C. Foster, the reading experience is more rewarding when a person can take a step back from the work and look at both patterns and symbols that could spur imagination. This confirms that writers leave room for people to make a conscious effort to look deeper into the writing and to have more of an interaction with the story. In Dropping in the author primarily repeats the phrase “think of” so the reader will continue to imagine their personal experience. For example, the author includes the phrases, “Think of the relentless sun, the expansive silence between attempts, the vertigo-inducing landscape.” And “Think of how so few people have ever actually been here, and how, whether they came to hide or skate, they came in exile.” (Johnston 14). The sensory language describing the warmth of the sun and vertigo inducing landscape helps the reader to imagine the more physical aspect of the Nude Bowl.

Talent can be ruined by forcing someone to conform to the stereotypes of a job, thereby putting a metaphorical hat on them. The hat symbolizes the role a job plays in society and how a person of that occupation is supposed to act. By expecting someone to conform to the standards set by the hat, expectations and boundaries are created that can possibly limit someone’s potential. As an experienced writer, Annie Dillard has given first-hand advice on how to discard the metaphorical hat in her essay Push It. Throughout her essay, Dillard informs her readers that the hardships they encounter may seem like Goliath before David, but that persistence is better than perfection.

Complimenting: It’s a misconception to think that people work for only materialistic gains. People usually would like to be eulogized and extolled for their
Skepticism Writing allows people to communicate and reflect on their thoughts. To write out one’s ideas allows the writer to reflect upon and reinterpret their interpretations. To feel a feeling, to think a thought is only surface level - to really explore the thought or feeling one must write it down and look at it objectively - not as their own as an idea removed. It is like evaluating someone else’s answer to a question. The removal from one’s self allows a writer to be more free.
It is not an end, but rather a continuation of my journey. If my writing at VBI can help one person feel accepted and a bit less lonely, if it motivates one person to unmute without fear of ridicule, if it puts one person on a redemptive path from shame to self-acceptance, then it is worthy. I’ve been told my ability to confidently deliver a speech, to challenge my opponent in debate, and to approach people with poise has inspired others to venture out into unchartered territory. And I’m ready to venture into new territory, too. My stuttering has inspired my dream of pursuing interdisciplinary studies to help change how we interact with the world with our
Symbolism is arguably a very important term when comes to writing, it plays a vital role in getting the reader involved and finding the key meaning of the text involved. It’s not easy to find an overall meaning when there isn’t any other outstanding force influencing the meaning behind the intended novel or whatever it may be.

Of course, those symbols that we find may result in something we’ve been looking for, such as the piece that could potentially lead to an important life experience.
Writing is an activity I do to get problems or ideas out of my head and into a physical state. After writing an idea down, I find I am more confident in my words and actions.
