Please reviews my essay. Thank you a lot



My hobby

I have been devoting the majority of my free time to do what I love most: reading.

It is just wonderful to let myself lose into a whole new world every time I open a book. It can be the fascinating world of magic in "Harry Potter", the intricate world of an autistics boy in "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time", or the mystery world of space and time in "A brief history of time". I was born with the desire to explore the world. But my current situation does not give me any chance to do so. Reading comes as the most useful facility for me to see this wonderful world through others' eyes, thus offering me the scenes of all over the world.

Reading has the ability to change my life, reading helps develop a sense of creativity, ect. Those conceptions are what I hear from my peers, my teachers all the time. They undoubtedly arrive at these conceptions through their own adventures in the books. But to me, reading is simply great way to unwind at the end of a stressful day and enjoy my own imaginations.

It is many years since my first reading. Reading is not my hobby anymore. It is now my need.

For book titles, do not use " " marks. Instead, italicize the title:

It can be the fascinating world of magic in Harry Potter, the intricate world of an autistics boy in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, or the mystery world of space and time in A Brief History of Time.

Reading has the potential to change my life; it helps develop a sense of creativity. Those conceptions are what I hear from my peers, my teachers all the time.

Reading has become a familiar experience over the years; now it is not only a hobby, but also a need.

I love reading a lot, but I find it is quite hard to convey my feeling, my passion to others. I feel the short essay above is not expressive enough. Have you got any suggestion for me?

Yes, how do you convey a feeling? I recommend making some time to read stephen king's On Writing.

That book will help you more than I can here. Writing is telepathy, he says!

However, I would like to say that certain words are powerful. Clear, specific words, and words that make the reader SEE something in the mind.

Writing is a way to share the most important secrets you've discovered about life. If you are telling those secrets, you won't be able to help but write with feeling.
