In this 21st century it now in high demand for one to be able to have good writing skills, no matter the job market you go to. I really do agree with the saying that most people don’t know, think or appreciate how important writing could be to them. I must admit I was part of these people who did not appreciate writing skills and was completely terrible at writing until I got into advertising. However I have learned that good-writing skills is going to take some time. Learning that there is a process that you could take to be a good writer is really encouraging. I should also admit that most of the time I write, I find it hard to convey exactly what I mean. Fortunately I was taught a formula (subject + verb + object) to help me out every time I find myself in this situation. I think it was really great and insightful to know how short and declarative writing could be and that they have the most effect E.g. Pythagorean theorem: 24 words and the Lord’s Prayer: 66 words. To be honest I still cannot say for sure if I would enjoy writing in the future when I hopefully start working at an advertising agency. However I would say I do not hate writing anymore like I used too, therefore I think this is a good step in the right direction. Therefore I firmly believe if more young people take time out to learn good writing skills it would surely be a huge bonus for them in their professional carrier For example I have learn how to write really interesting taglines and content analysis in my quest to be a better writer in the new age of social media which further allows me to express my creative side and push my message in a short and precise manner. Finally I believe better learning and practicing by millennials is the only way to improve our writing skills.
