Writing Wednesday: The Queen Bee’s Lemonade
The central point in the article “Beyoncé’s Lemonade as an A+ essay” raised by author Guy Dixon is that essay writing skills are key, due to the fact that they can be transferred to a multitude of other forms, such as sales pitches, online dating profiles, or writing a song. I agree with the author that learning writing skills is essential to one’s life after university, because they are beneficial for various social aspects of a person’s life. The skills to write are crucial in the business world, and really for any ambitious person in the entertainment or innovation industries, because to attract investors to support their projects they need to organize a sales pitch to gain the attention of said investors. The skills of a sales pitch are learned through essay writing techniques as the main components of both a sales pitch, and an essay are centered around good organizational and structural skills learned through schools and universities. Writing skills are key to success after university, because they help people do things after they graduate and allow them to be more successful due to the rigorous education skills they picked up through intensive essay writing throughout their academic careers.

I disagree with this, because it doesn’t take good essay writing skills to be successful after one’s academic career, whether or not they went to university. Essay writing skills aren’t beneficial after one’s time in school or university, because the majority of the writing people will be doing after university is to pay bills and keep taxes in check, or writing emails and thank-you letters (if anyone still consistently does that). It takes only the very basic knowledge of a language to hold a texting conversation with someone, and typically the majority of messages are one to two sentences maximum, meaning that you don’t need to have good essay writing skills to be understandable through one of the current primary modes of transportation. Essay writing skills are not key to life after university, because for the majority of people they hold no real value in everyday life, because it is seldom that the majority of them will ever have to write an essay or any sort of sales pitch to further their status.
