I have seen many recorded wars, whether on the television or on the Internet and sometimes in movies. Before any war, soldiers should prepare for confrontation. Additionally, they are supposed to stick to the plan of the commander who command's them. Wars have a start and finish that is affected by a result of victory or defeat. Between the start and finish there is movement and an action. Since the movement and the challenge are present, there must be a result after the end. When I knew about the soldiers and what they do in the wars, I realized that I can say a writer in the process of writing could be like a soldier in a battle for many reasons by comparing. In writing, a writer should also prepare for the confrontation. Furthermore, he is supposed to stick to the plan that the teacher has given him in order to succeed. Writing has steps and rules which a writer works on. When you start you have to begin with an introduction, in the middle there are body paragraphs, and in the end there is a conclusion. Moreover, results are the main thing for writers because its represents all their work for grading if it is a pass or no pass. After the comparison and the common things between the writer in the process of writing and the soldier in a battle, I could say writing is a battlefield. A writer is a soldier in a war in the domains of preparing, sticking to the plan, start, middle, finish, and result.
No one can deny that everyone needs to be ready for any challenge by preparing well and sticking to the plan of their leader or anyone who is guiding them. A soldier and a writer are similar in this case. Before a war a soldier should prepare by practicing and getting weapons; knives, and bombs which helps the soldier for the confrontation that might be a matter of life and death. A soldier has his own weapons in order to face the worst, and that’s why they should be prepared well and have all their weapons before going to a battle. As a similarity, writers should prepare before they start writing by getting their pens, papers, and plot their ideas in a paper. This is because they should have an idea of what will be discussed in the essay. For example, if I was supposed to write an essay about soccer, I have to think about the things that I will talk about before I start writing. After that, I have to bring my pen and notebook to start writing, because no one can write without a pen or paper obviously. After preparations, both the writer and the soldier have it easy to go ahead with their mission.
Sticking to the plan is something which is very important. Every war has commanders to give orders to the soldiers so that they know what their mission is. A soldier cannot move or go anywhere without a commanders order. This is because a commander is more experienced and knows about war plans more than the soldiers. In addition, to accomplish a successful mission soldiers have to follow their commanders’ plan. Also for the writers, they cannot write whatever they want. This means that they have to write in a specific structure that the teacher has given to them. This is also because the teacher is more experienced with the steps and writing, and any writer that follows the plans and the education given to him from the teacher will be successful.
Everything that is successful or unsuccessful has a start at some point. In a war the first move from the soldier is to attack and in writing the first move is the introduction. In a war, a soldier has to attack to inform the enemy that he is there and willing to kill, while in writing, they begin by introduction to set the mode of the essay. Soldiers have to use their weapons by firing towards their enemies. Writers have to write a thesis statement to explain what they are writing about, and the thesis statement has to be in the introduction. Similarly, in a war, soldiers protect their country from their enemy which explains why the war took place. For example, if writers write essays without strong introductions the might not attract readers who will read them so they need to be clear and include everything the essays will be about in their introductions. Before the start of the war, a soldier needs to be strong and confident so as to commence well by trying to never get down till the mission is complete.
Upon completion, the beginning of anything has to touch the subject in deep. A soldier’s action is characterized by precision and how successfully he overcomes his opponent. In the middle of the war soldiers have to move from side to side to get a good position by covering themselves from the enemies. Additionally, soldiers have a lot of movement, action, and ready for any adverse reaction upon them. Writers have to write body paragraphs which are between the introduction and conclusion paragraphs. In the body paragraphs, they have to gives examples, precise details, and sometimes personal examples to clarify their essays in a good way and make it easier for the readers to understand what the argument is about. For example, if the soldier makes a wrong move in battle, it might expose his life to danger. Alternatively, if the writer does not explain or give examples to the reader, this will probably make the reader less attracted to the essay.
In the end, everyone needs to be perfect and successful. A soldier finishes his mission by eliminating the enemy; that is the success which he had practiced for. Also, that shows he has done everything in the war accordingly. A writer finishes an essay with a conclusion, which is the last paragraph of the essay. The conclusion of the writer has to restate the main points and the important facts from the entire essay. Writing the conclusion is supposed to be in a different formula, but with the same meaning. The writer concludes by restating what the entire essay is about. That will be a success for a writer and in the end; the writer will get a good grade from it.
Every effort has results, whether negative or positive. Certainly, no one is pleased with negative consequences but always looks forward for the positive results. Every war eventually has to end with victory or defeat. Similarly, in writing there is pass and no pass. Sometimes there are signs that show if the result will be negative or positive. In a war, soldiers raise the red flag if they are victorious and raise the white flag if they give in and surrender. Some instructors utilize the thumb to show if the paper that was written deserves to be a pass or a no pass. Thumb up shows the writing was done well. However, thumb down shows the writing was not done in the right way. For example, if someone in the war raises the red or white flag all soldiers will stop fighting. This is because these flags are a sign of the end of the war and no one should fire or kill.
In conclusion, writers when writing are like soldiers in a battle and I realized this when I started comparing them. Therefore a writer is a soldier in sticking to the plan; preparations, start, middle, finish, and results. They have many things in common and share many examples. I believe that any false move could be very fatal to both of their careers.
