Information Fluency – Writing as a Passion

Writing is something that can be very hard for somebody to do. It requires a lot of reading alongside constant practice to become better, which many kids may not choose to do. But the pros of writing far outweigh the cons. Writing allows you to create your own universes, your own little characters with their own personalities. Did you not like Harry Potter when you read it? Make your own version of it, with characters you can actually connect and relate to. Nonetheless, writing is a technical and complicated skill that requires good grammar and a creative drive. I used the sites Explora and Gale Engage Learning to search. One interesting site I found mentioned the various ways that “Reading and Writing Interlock,” which I found exceptionally interesting. “Although there are elements specific to each,” writing and reading are exceptionally similar as they are skills that must be honed and oftentimes go hand in hand. Most of my skill in writing comes from my hobby in reading. The second site I found, centered around writing tips, offered skillful advice: your first book “isn’t necessarily the first novel you should publish.” That’s good advice. Either way, I hope this helps anybody else searching to become a writer similarly to me.
