The craft of writing is an ancient one. Per trusty WikiPedia, the root of language stems from:
It is generally agreed that true writing of language (not only numbers) was invented independently in at least two places: Mesopotamia (specifically, ancient Sumer) around 3200 BC and Mesoamerica around 600 BC. Several Mesoamerican scripts are known, the oldest being from the Olmec or Zapotec of Mexico.
Old English developed from a set of North Sea Germanic dialects originally spoken along the coasts of Frisia, Lower Saxony, Jutland, and Southern Sweden by Germanic tribes known as the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes. In the fifth century, the Anglo-Saxons settled Britain and the Romans withdrew from Britain.
Writing is an art. Writing is a craft. Writing is a way of life, and although writers can be created, it is also true that writers are also born that way. There is something in their genetic code that urges them to release their thoughts through language. It is sometimes the only way for them to think through problems and obstacles. It is a known universe, where everything simply makes sense.
Because the writer creates her universe to fit her world, and it is something that she can control with her mind. There is nothing that exists outside of language, is there?
