Yes, being a good writer still matters

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:02 AM

Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence you know. — Ernest Hemingway, formerly of the Kansas City Star

The skills of our profession have changed a great deal since I interviewed for my first reporting job and the crusty editor had one question: “Can you spell?”

Now the basics include working across platforms, social media, blogs, live blogging, live Tweeting, interviewing via Skype and at least a fundamental knowledge of HTML, video, Web and graphics production, and art direction.

The Peanuts character Snoopy always begins his novels with the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night".

Yet writing remains foundational to what we do. I fear that in chasing the latest shiny object, we not only lose something precious to perpetuating a civilization, but a critical element that will help ensure our relevance to readers.

Clear writing and skillful storytelling are timeless. In our specialty, they are particularly important. Readers depend on us to explain complex issues, concepts and debates, ones often obscured by junk economics, ideology or corporate jargon. If we can’t do it accurately, intelligently and powerfully, they will go the hockey scores. Or go to business writers and outlets that can do so.

Rick Wicked's curator insight, November 26, 2013 6:07 PM

"As the clouds bubbled in turmoil like popcorn popping too long in oil while knowing they were an accessory to a Hannibal Lector side dish, she elegantly...picked her nostril. And not just any nostril. No. No man could resist such a nostril of art."
