Now that graduations are over, and students begin “the first day of the rest of their lives”, we might reflect on how writing relates to our professional lives. For instance, writing doesn’t go away after we take our last English course, or graduate from school. Writing is an integral part of our daily life, whether emailing, blogging, texting, writing reports, or just making a list. Through writing we project an image of who we are, how we think.
Writing is also one of the primary ways we document our lives, and in the 21st-century much of what we write hinges on how we interpret the world around us . . . in other words how we read and interpret messages delivered in a variety of modalities: books, messages, images, people, events, etc..
