Writing Contest- BlindnessThis contest is now over.Writing Contest- Blindness4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be blind? What happens if you’re blind, but suddenly regain your sight?
Write something- prose, poetry, whatever- on one of these topics:
What it’s like to go blind (not be blind all your life, but to actually lose your sight)
What it’s like to gain sight
What might a person be feeling? For someone who’s gone blind, how do they deal with only using four senses? For someone who can suddenly see, how (if at all) do they make sense of the colors and shapes? It’s like learning a new language.
Remember that the brain cannot create information; it can only work with what it’s given. So someone who’s blind will not know what an oval looks like, no matter how many times they may have traced one with their finger.
The entry must be in a written form. It can be anything written-
