Kirstynn learned how to read by listening to as much reading as possible. She remembers that as a child her mother would read her stories every night, and from there she would try to read as much as possible, absorbing as much as possible. Kirstynn believes that people read because it takes them to a whole different world, a new dimension that, they otherwise would not be able to enter. To be a good reader, one just needs to have a good imagination and a passion for something new, because there's a new emotion on every page. Kirstynn believes that the easiest part of reading is connecting with the book, and letting it take you to a whole different place. She believe that the hardest part of reading however, is finding a book that you cannot connect properly with, and engage yourself in it. Kirstynn chooses a book by finding a topic or emotion that interests her, or that draws her in, she especially enjoys books that will make her cry because of the deep feelings placed into the book. Kirstynn reads whenever she has the chance, and loves reading when she can find a book that reaches into her soul.
Kirstynn loves writing, and learned how by mimicking her favorite writers, her elementary teachers. She believes that people write to draw out feelings and passion that they otherwise would not be able to share. When people are actually recording their thoughts, they can share, or get out thoughts and emotions that have been building up inside of them, and its like a heavy burden suddenly being lifted from their chest. She believes that all anyone has to do to write well is to be able to think on their own. If you can build a thought or a feeling, you can write well, simple as that. She enjoys creative writings, personal narratives, and short stories. Kirstynn's ideas come from personal experiences, she believes that the best things to write about are things that she's personally lived through. She would love to write more often, but due to school and sports, she does a majority of her writing at school. She loves her writing, because it really represents herself, and who she is not only as an individual, but also emotionally as well.
