For me writing is a practice of marking, documenting, and translating. It captures and at best releases experience from its temporal containment, for a future public to read, experience, and re-write. There are different writing practices. Some take more seriously a commitment to truth and knowledge than others, which tend to translate, embody or filter writing through the writer's own subjective experience, imagination, politics, or style. There are genres of writing from the academic essay to creative fiction, but writing when it is a practice, like art, often does not know exactly how it came to be, or what its purpose is entirely, but there is some kind of sensing (not always knowing) that time can be meddled with. Writing is a technology for accessing or communicating with the past, recording the present, and, or generating a future.
