The History and Process of Writing If there is one thing life teaches us all everyday it is that learning never ceases. It matters not if the subject is a foreign language, understanding abortion laws, or writing about love. We learn whenever we participate in anything. Therefore it is worthy of understanding. We learn many ways, through many means. Some listen, some read, some ignore and other study till they cry, but the true learners learn through enjoyment and savor every moment of it. To understand writing we need to: A) know the history, B) understand learning, C) understand research, D) see how this all can be used. When researching life you need to know the experts, you need to be involved and you need to love living, or at least be good at writing like you do. Now, writing. The strongest way to change the world is with a pen. But to use the pen you need a pen. Therefore you need a pen inventor, but first you need paper, and it's inventor, as well as the inventors' inventor. So we come to the beginning. According to Conceptual Physics the universe was formed in a nano-second after what has come to be known as the big bang. Then God set the world in motion and said, "Let there be light."(Genesis 1) With that out of the way came man (Genesis 1:27), and farther down the line came cave drawing. Thus began mans quest to document the world, and parchments were discovered. In the 12th century ink was discovered by King Tut's court and a more refined documenting was started. In 1563, Guttenberg invented the printing press in Germany. (Britannica G) Before this time writing, or books specifically were very expensive. Catholic monks translated all books before then. This shaped the world for the first part of its existence, but after the press the world was free to print basically whatever mankind could dream up. The study of learning is a large part of the writing process and they go hand in hand at times. It is a respected fact that most people are primarily left, or primarily right brain thinkers. According to Allen Bragdon and David Gamon, Ph.D. the specific kinds of intelligence that contribute to professional and personal success exist in the left part of the brain.
