The paper is a self assessment of the writer's attitudes to reading and writing skills and the the factors that, for him, make the two actions either tedious or enjoyable.The author contends that reading and writing are unnatural processes in so much as they have to be learned and do not develop naturally as does speech. He further contends that an individual's personal preferences determine whether the skills are problematical or not. In addition, the writer tells us that, in his case, there are reading and writing activities which are tedious and lengthy because he has no interest in the subject, and others where, because of his interest or affinity with the subject, are easy and enjoyable process. This, he suggests, is true of most individuals.
From the Paper:"I think I am an average to good writer depending on my mood. When I write about things I like traveling, sports or my hobbies, I can express my thoughts and feelings with gusto. I can describe the "moment" with such vividness and color that I could probably put other writers to shame. I can say this confidently because I am writing about me, my deepest thoughts, my happiness and my fear. It is quite easy to write something that springs from within especially if it is without boundaries, without shame. Now once you talk about writing things such as homework, thesis, research or term papers - you got me there. Boy will I get stump. I take forever to collect my thoughts and I am the great procrastinator. It's like when I get an assignment to write an essay due in two days, instead of doing it immediately I tend to keep telling myself, "Yah, I'll do it...eventually!" Whoa and two ours before the deadline, I'm up to my wits wrecking my brain to come up with a decent literary tour de force. Eventually, I make it but after a lot of unnecessary stress I put myself into instead of doing things way ahead of time."
