Why do we need good writing skills?

A Lesson by Kelley

Just some tips to help out in your writing.


There are many reasons to have good writing skills.  The most important one I think is communication.  If you don’t have good writing skills you will have a hard

time communicating with your readers.

Good writing skills can help you in life.  If you’re trying to get a job, good writing skills make you more desirable to the employer.  One of the first things an employer looks at is your cover letter or resume.  If you have an interesting cover letter it could lead to an interview.  I think even if you’re just exchanging e-mails.  E-mails that are clearly written generally make you seem more intelligent and more responsible.

Good writing skills can lead to a monetary value.  Lots of people make a living writing.  I’m not just talking about people who write books.  There are technical writers, copywriters, software writers the list goes on and on.  Even if you are not a professional writer there is ways to make money with your good writing skills.  You could write a blog on the side.  There are endless ways to make some extra money on the internet with endless amounts of content.  It’s rare to find good content on the internet and when you do sometimes it’s worth paying for.

Without good writing skills the world would be in anarchy and chaos.  Bad writing skills can lead to misinformation.  Bad writing skills can lead to the wrong or ambiguous message.  Good writing skills can lead to a much needed confidence boost.

One of the most important considerations when writing in any style is the purpose of your writing.  What is the attended goal of your writing?  Is it to argue a point  ? Is it to describe an event?  If you have a purpose in your writing from the start you are more likely to achieve your goal.

Another purpose of good writings skills is to know your audience.  All audiences require different styles of writing.  If you do not keep this in mind you might produce ineffective communication.

Good writing skills must be engaging. If it is not interesting no one will want to read it. Another thing to take note of is to keep your writing focused.  It is easy to get side tracked. Always try to be direct and to the point.  When people are confident in there writing skills whether it is a business proposal or just a friendly e-mail you make an impression on people just on you’re writing skills alone.

If you want to have good writing skills read.  Read good writing, read bad writing. Learn to tell the difference.  One way to make your writing skills better is to remember simplicity of style: noun, verb, and object; It worked for Hemingway; he said that his ultimate goal in writing was to create the perfect sentence.

Good writing skills are important in professional and personal lives.  Don’t let it be a thorn in your side.  It’s easy to achieve good writing skills if you set your mind to it.
