Many occupations require writing, and for those people haven’t graduated yet, it can help earn scholarships. You may not like writing, but it is really important, in and out of school. I really don’t like to write, but I have always needed it, and I am not even in high school yet. Even in math nowadays you need to know how to create or solve problems from a paragraph.
I have to do writing out of school too. My grandma, bless her heart, is a person who will make you write every day. Every time I go to her house she gives me a journal and tells me to write my thoughts or to fill out a time sheet to prepare me for my not-too-distant future. I thank her greatly for this. This is why I joined Writers’ Workshop: to write and overcome any dislikes I have towards writing. Let me tell you, Mr. Voley has not let me down; he requires me to write a lot. And I do mean a lot. I also thank him for this.
So you may not like writing, but it is extremely important and is easier to learn how to do it than avoid it. Trust me. Besides why would you avoid something that you need for all jobs?
My question for you this week: Think of a time and place that you have had to write and you didn’t like it. And if you love writing, please send me your secret.
