This is a huge debate amongst everyone, is writing truly a skill. People who work in the writing community believe it is, and people outside of the community believe it isn’t. So, let’s state the facts.
Yes, everyone is able to write, but it’s what you write that shows if you have the skill or not. Anyone can put words onto paper and have them make some kind of sense. But only a handful of people are able to make these words make you feel something. Only a handful of people can put true meaning and power behind their words.
We all have the same words to use, but it is how we decide to use them that makes all of the difference. So, whilst the act of writing is not a skill, writing in a meaningful way is a skill that should be appreciated by all.
