33% of U.S. employees fail at writing. Whether
it's an e-mail memo or a complex report, fully
1/3 of the U.S. workforce does
not meet the
minimum writing requirements 4their jobs ac-
cording 2a College Board's National Commis-
sion survey on writing. The survey was done
with 64companies across 6industries repre-
senting 4,000,000 employees: mining+con-
struction+manufacturing+transportation+util-
ities+services+finance+insurance+real estate.

The major writing problems 4them r accuracy+
clarity+spelling+punctuation+grammar+con-
ciseness. Susan Traiman, director of the edu-
cation initiative for the Business Roundtable,
says: There's no way to say that writing has
gotten worse: the demand has gotten greater.

tip: improving your writing skills (stringing

       
verbs+nouns+adjectives together 
        2make a sense) will payoff because
        more than 1/2 the companies surveyed
        said they do assess writing skills when
        they make hiring+promotion decisions

"Every writer approaches the day's work in
  different ways:
I have always needed space
  and silence to pull inside myself
before I
  pick
up the pen. (Yes, I still write with pen
  and real ink.)
This pulling inside may take
  an hour or a morning, I know it's
happening
  while I'm d
ripping coffee through a hand-
  filter; I know 
that in some unforced way, I
  am readying m
yself to face the empty
_page not as easy as one might believe."

"Imagination is more important than knowledge.
  Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles
  the world."

   - Albert Einstein


"There are no beginnings, noteven to stories.
  There are
only places where you make an en-
  trance into someone
else's life and either stay
  or turn and go away."

   - Timothy Findley, Canadian writer

"Reading is the means by which the world does
  a large part of its work ... .
The slightest improve-
  ment either in the page or in the method of rea-
  ding
means a great service to the human race."

   - E. B. Huey, 1908 - 1968
