Exlporation Two: Introductions, From John Link

                  My name is John Link. I'm originally from a small town called Warren, Ohio. I moved to Columbus in 2009 and graduated high school from Olentangy Orange. I enjoy being outside and try to do a variety of activities such as rock climbing, hiking, and swimming. I also enjoy quite a few indoor activities such as board games, card games, and playing music. I played snare drum in my high schools marching band as well as drum set for the show choir combo band.
             The Call to Write has interesting theme to it which I hadn't previously considered when reading and writing. Of course I had been impacted by pieces I read and wrote and accepted them as piece of who I am, but have never fully grasped the scope that literary pieces affect the world we live in. Something so simple as a shopping list can exhibit the most basic principals of writing, the topic without any kind of description or explanation, This can also be seen in simple things such as street signs or even the "memes" that circulate around the internet. The call to write begins to define what it means to write and read in the world around us, not just in class but in our everyday lives.


  1. That's an interesting way of looking at that John. I agree that there is so much more to writing than the formal way we use it in school. Its a big part of our lives that sometimes we don't even notice.

  2. I like how you used social media and the culture we live in to describe how literary events impact all of us, when we might not even notice.
