The faintest ink is better than human memory - Chinese Proverb
Human memory may fail, but a written piece would never fail - E.Hillz
A wise man once said, when your vision moves from thoughts to paper, it becomes alive and achievable.
Writing is the oldest form of speech presentation. Ever wondered why God did not resort to giving Moses the Ten Commandments verbally but took out time to inscribe them with his hands on a tablet? This He (God) did a second time after Moses angrily destroyed the first. *This confirms the importance of writing.
Writing on a tablet is a unique skill possessed by craftsmen. This accrues God with the title; "Craftsman of all craftsmen.'' If you're a writer, you're not only made of the image of God, you possess His dominant trait: Craftsmanship.
Anchor Scripture: Habakkuk 2:2
"Then the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it."Verbal communication is good. But for posterity sake, written speeches should be subscribed to, because, it can be passed from generation to generation. Now, imagine if the authors of the Bible, philosophical works, encyclopedia, etc. did not commit to writing. It would have been a dead end. Thank God for writers!
There were situations when God subscribed to verbal communication to convey His message, and in His wisdom, He admonished them to write every word in their hearts or in a book, pending on its depth.
In professional organizations, you'll have to pass the written test(s) to qualify you to the oral/verbal interview. This amplifies the ambiguity of writing and written works.
In a society where writing has been downplayed, do not join the bandwagon because eventually, written works would be used as references while gaudy speeches with no documentation would die a natural death.
Subscribe wholly to writing. It is the only means of preserving an idea that will stand the test of time.
Have a Fab day!
