Throughout history, the concept of writing has changed to accommodate a dominant technological society. This has had an impact on the way adults communicate, collaborate, and write. For productive progression, writers must be familiar with how to market effectively with social media tools, be effective in business writing in the working environment, recognize personal goals related to their craft of writing and special topics of interests. Effective writers accept the past, enjoy the present, and plan for the future.
