Eloquence In Writing in Yet another blog A blog by JadedAtheist Posted January 18, 2014 · Report reply It's not always just about writing novels and books. Having the ability to write well will give you a significant advantage in whatever career path you go down. Believe me. I know. A large portion of my job is writing and editing what others have written, and I do not work in even a remotely literary field. Writing is more than a learned skill; it's a talent. When you're good at it, others notice. Most people are terrible writers the same way most people are terrible singers, but nearly everyone recognizes good writers and good singers. If you're naturally good at something, develop that talent as much as you can. You never know where it might lead or just how far it might take you.
