A Hobby - Writing
Writing is language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system). It is renowned from illustration, such as painting and cave drawing and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual medium, such as attractive tape audio.

Writing most likely began as a result of political expansion in ancient cultures, which needed dependable means for maintaining financial accounts, transmitting information, keeping chronological records, and similar activities. Around the 4th millennium BC, the difficulty of trade and management in Mesopotamia outgrew human memory, and writing became a more responsible method of recording and presenting transactions in a eternal form. In both Ancient Egypt and Mesoamerica writing may have evolved through calendrics and a political necessity for recording historical and environmental procedures. The oldest known use of writing in China was in prediction in the royal court.

Writing as a category

Writing, more mainly, refers to two things: writing as, or is, the article that is written; and writing as gerunds, which designate the activity of writing. It refers to the writing of characters on a medium, thus forming words, and larger units of language, known as texts. It also refers to the making of meaning and the information thereby generated. In that regard, linguistics (and related sciences) distinguishes between the written language and the spoken language. The importance of the medium by which meaning and information is expressed is indicated by the division made in the arts and sciences. For example, while poetry reading and public speaking are both types of speech, the former is governed by the system of rhetoric and the latter by poetics.

A person who composes a story or message in the form of text is generally known as a writer or an author. Though, more specific designations exist which are dictated by the particular nature of the text such as that of poet, playwright, essayist, journalist, novelist, and more. A translator is a specialized multilingual writer who must fully understand a message written by somebody else in one language; the translator's job is to produce a document of faithfully equal message in a completely unusual language. A person who transcribes or makes text to deliver a message authored by another person is known as a scribe, typist or typesetter. A person who makes text with emphasis on the aesthetics of glyphs is known as a graphic designer or calligrapher
Writing is also a distinctly human activity. At this point in time, the only confirmed writing in existence is of human origin.

Any person is capable of making or creating a writing piece. Some people may even make a decision to publish a story or message.

Writing systems

The major writing systems – methods of writing – broadly fall into four categories: alphabetic, syllabic, logographic, and featured. Another category, ideographic (symbols for ideas), has never been made adequately to characterize language. A sixth category, pictographic, is inadequate to represent language on its own, but often forms the center of logography.
