Why You Should Learn To Write
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many of today's students have difficulty writing, possibly because they have become too accustomed to the abbreviations that are commonly used in text messages. There is a time and a place for these abbreviations, such as when sending a message to a friend or family member. However, in more formal communications, this type of shorthand should be avoided.

In school, students write papers. The papers may be written on an assigned topic or a topic of the student's own choosing. They are then submitted to the teacher by the deadline. They are to be well organized and should contain no errors in grammar, spelling, or punctuation. Any errors will cause the student to get a lower grade. If the papers are well written, on the other hand, the student will likely get a good grade. Good grades open the door to several possibilities for the student, such as scholarships, graduate school, or jobs.

In the business world, employees may be asked to write reports. The reports would have to be written on a certain subject, typed, and then either turned in or presented to a group, depending on the supervisor's instructions. In such a report, there is no place for symbols. Reports are very formal. They are to be written in proper English. When students can get past the use of symbols and become accustomed to writing properly, they can consider several career options.

One such option is an article writer. As an article writer, the writer works at his own pace and submits articles to websites. There are several websites that allow people to submit articles. The articles are then published, and the writer gets paid. With their pay, they can pay their bills, follow their dreams, and have a good life.

Another idea for a career in the writing field is novelist. The writer can write books, publish them, and develop an audience of readers who wait eagerly for the next book to hit bookstore shelves. The novelist can also speak at schools and hold book signings, which help to increase his sales.

If you are interested in a writing career, begin by focusing on proper writing. Pay attention to your sentence structure, and concentrate on the message that you are trying to get across to your readers. Whether your goal is to entertain, inform, persuade, or criticize, you can reach your readers and deliver an effective message once you have mastered the basics of writing.
