why is writing soo important!!??!?!?

QUESTION
why is writing soo important!!??!?!?
I HATE WRITING SOOO MUCH !!!!!! like persuasive, essays, expository, etc. I am good at math, chemistry, grammar, spanish, and all that except writing! i have an F now in English because of my dumb teacher giving out so much writing assignments that I try really hard on, I just don’t have the talent. why can’t it be an elective only? can someone please tell me why it is important because I only want to be a pharmacist. -.-

ANSWER
believe it or not, writing actually helps with your reading and speaking skills. There are three reasons writing is very very important.
First off, writing is important because you need to be able to express yourself through the written word in a way that others can and are willing to understand you. If you can’t do that, you’re going to have a hard time getting in to college, writing business emails, and holding a steady job as most jobs (yes, even pharmacists) need to be able to converse through email.
Second of all, writing helps with your reading skills as you obviously need to know how to read in order to write. If you want to go into the medical field, you’re going to have to do a lot of reading, especially of technical, detailed stuff. In that case, it’s a very good idea to have a high reading level and comprehension level so you can understand everything fully and be a great pharmacist.
Lastly, writing helps with speaking, which is definitely the most important skill to have. With writing, you learn important methods of organization and grammar that cross-apply to speech. If you can’t speak and present your ideas well, it is unlikely that job interviews will go well for you and talking on a daily basis to customers could prove difficult.
So write, and do try to enjoy it 🙂 I know its hard, but the more you do it, the better you will get so hang in there!
