Hello, my name is Viktor Ball. I am a 19 year old mechanical engineering student from Marysville, Ohio. I am currently living at the Annex here in Marion. In my free time, I enjoy literary pursuits and urban exploration. I can speak Japanese and Russian.
In reading The Call to Write, I noticed a central theme of learning to identify and appreciate the value of all writing, especially texts in which one can gain something from a literary event. A literary event being any section of writing through upon reading, the reader acquires a thought, inspiration, or any intangible (or tangible) gain that can shape their interactions with others. The Call to Write is written in an informal style, in which the author breaks down various written passages in order to teach the reader a deeper understanding of the writing, from the person behind it to the emotions conveyed and more.
