In this video, I share my advice for students interested in developing professional writing skills in the 21st century. As a professional writer myself, I don’t believe modern Catholic schools or homeschool programs are leading students to real success in writing, but are merely filling their school years with artificial school activities that don’t translate to the real work of writing.
Note: The advice I give to students in this video is my own, and children are to always honor the wishes of their parents, which is God’s commandment. I you’re a student and your parents do not wish for you to follow the advice I give–that’s that. Obey your parents.
