Why do I need writing skills?
Not only is writing necessary for educational purposes, but for career purposes as well. Throughout one's life, you may be asked to write many times over. From professional resumes, cover letters, e-mails, etc. it is imperative to have good communication skills. The written word is an exceptional way to express one's self to others. With the proper skill set one may successfully convey their thoughts, ideas, opinions, and emotions to the outside world. It is one of the most important forms of self-expression, and in many ways today, your written word may be the first impression you have towards job/career opportunities, internships, college applications, etc.
How can literature help everyone in their day to day life?
Literature is a way in which we can capture and interpret what has happened and is happening to us personally and to the world as a whole. An entire culture exists in the written word, documenting the collective thoughts of everyone who cared to share them with the world. Therefore, I believe that for one to truly be a part of human society, it is critical that one take part in the evolution and self-realization that is literature, even if only in the reading aspect. Writing, however, carries a grave importance, as literature simply would not exist in the accessible form it does without written word, and for that reason I believe all who can write should. One should take advantage of the great opportunity to be part of and contribute to the world and society in which he or she lives through writing. I see literature in the societal sense a collective struggle to understand and make the best of the lives that we have all been given. Literature serves as a way to enrich our minds, and presents a way to improve the world not only through the beauty of its presence but through the ideas and tangible possibilities it possesses.
