MY WRITING INVENTORY Writing skills are very important to have while in college and throughout life. To build your writing skills to the best they can be you must first know your own writing style. You should know what your strengths and weaknesses are so you can begin to work on them and make them better. By knowing the way you deal with a writing assignment and the way you work on them, you can fix your problems and become the best writer you can.
My attitude about writing is I do not mind writing things in general. I know that writing skills are an important asset to have when getting a job.

The easiest type of writing assignments for me are the one’s when I already know the information that is needed and all I need to do is type it. If I already know all the information I need there is no reason not to sit down and at least get some work done on the assignment.
