Getting one's point across clearly and efficiently is key to good communication, and it's a skill young people should master as early as possible. Learning to write well not only opens doors for writers but for others as well; stories bring readers to new worlds they wouldn't or couldn't otherwise explore, but only if they're written well.

Many people think writing is a straightforward task, but why do people often miscommunicate? It's because the written communication was not done well.

To me, writing is about sharing and learning. The young generation today is very smart and I hope to see them sharing their knowledge with others through writing.
