Identity plays a big role in writing. Who you are determines what you write. Also, what type of space you write on explains your identity. If you are writing on a space like Facebook or Twitter, it can say that you have the identity of a writer where you want people to see what you are saying. The identity of a writer is important because it shows expression. Writers may prefer to specifically write about one topic. For example, as a writer, my identity is writing with emotion. I tend to write everything based of emotion and experience rather than factual evidence and research. Overall, a writers identity is one of the most important things that shines through in the work.
