Im­por­tance of writ­ing and its ap­pro­pri­ate uses

Panay News - - MAJOR STORIES -  By Remie B. Vil­lanueva,

THROUGH writ­ing, we are able to ex­press our thoughts.

With the help of writ­ing, we are able to de­velop the habit of think­ing deeply be­fore ex­press­ing some­thing be­cause it is harder to re­tract what we have writ­ten than what we have said.

It also gives us an op­por­tu­nity to de­velop the abil­ity to com­pose ideas and or­ga­nize thoughts and ar­gu­ments well be­cause we are able to re­view the thoughts we have ex­pressed by read­ing what we have writ­ten for any er­rors in gram­mar or vo­cab­u­lary, as well as check the spell­ing and dou­ble check in­for­ma­tion like in­ac­cu­ra­cies and miss­ing de­tails.

Be­ing able to ex­press what is needed through writ­ing will help peo­ple suc­ceed in their stud­ies in col­lege and grad­u­ate school be­cause of the th­e­ses or fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies that must be done.

We are now also in the dig­i­tal age; this al­lows

Pres. Roxas, Capiz us to com­mu­ni­cate through emails or chat mes­sages be­cause call­ing through the phone could be­come dif­fi­cult if the sig­nal is in­suf­fi­cient and the voice you hear be­comes choppy. Calls can also be in­ter­rupted due to poor in­ter­net con­nec­tion.

We need to dis­tin­guish when is the right time to use the cre­ative kind of writ­ing and the right time to use the aca­demic kind of writ­ing.

Cre­ative writ­ing al­lows us to use words that are de­scrip­tive and hi­fa­lutin. It also al­lows us to use opin­ions a lit­tle bit to ex­press thoughts or to tell a story. It al­lows us to ex­press things in a way that it would sound like our­selves when we speak. It is also not as strict as aca­demic writ­ing when it comes to things like sward speak, in­ter­net lingo, and other in­for­mal types of lan­guage.
