We love to assemble and talk about the distinct aspects that make up a civilized society. While the finer facts are debated, there are a number of things that most people agree are necessary to draw such a distinction. But writing stands out as more cultural in nature. While you don't need writing to survive, it may draw the most distinct line between a civilized and uncivilized society. In fact, writing became a necessity as a result of the advancement of civilization and then helped to drive that advancement after its evolution. Tales by the literary greats, that are nothing if not encouraging. When one thinks of the process of writing, words like isolated and detached are likely to pop up. It’s true, writers often spend long lonely hours trying to effectually churn out stories from hearts, minds, souls or whatever place it is that stories come from. But the community of writers functions as the evolving bridge between oneself and the general public. 

The progress of any literature comes from evolution. Old methods of literature are influenced by external methods, altering over time and eventually becoming the literature we know today. Even still, the literature we read and write is evolving in ways we may not even notice. This is particularly apparent with the rise of technology, where text message and Internet have entered our wordbook.

There have been many literary greats throughout history who have changed and inspired the world by their literature. World-famous writers like Darwin, William Shakespeare and John Milton have inspired millions. Moreover, poet and author Geoffrey was Widely considered the greatest writer of the Middle Ages and he has been called the "father of English literature”.

The literary tradition in India clearly goes back to more than 300 years, Sanskrit dominated, first in its Vedic and later in its classical form. Great ancient writers like Kalidasa, Kautilya and Panini have penned several great texts. From Vishnu Sharma's Panchatantra to Vatsyayana's Kamasutra, the Indian writers wrote in diverse themes. Writer Bharatendu Harishchandra is known as the father of Hindi literature as well as Hindi theatre. He is considered one of the greatest Hindi writers of modern India. After him, modern writers like Arundhanti Roy, R K Narayan, Jhumpa Lahiri, Khushwant Singh, Rabindranath Tagore and Ruskin Bond have continued the legacy of India. In current times, in fact, it would seem an unthinkable task to choose best out for special acclaim.

Writers can clearly show the flavour of the time, the voices that were most important, and the fears that drove that period’s actions. The different genres each reveal a unique aspect of the writer’s community. A horror writer will observe the troubles of his era. A science fiction writer will indicate that era’s views on technology, change and social issues. A literary writer will display what everyday life was really like. Questions, plot, characters, morals, story, all of these aspects are tools within the writer’s closet, used often to craft his or her statement about the world and to reach the minds of others.

By writing, the writer works to keep their era alive for future generations, so that our children and grandchildren can understand who we really were, and what we stood for. However, there’s much more to it than that. By nature, writers are teachers. Writers write because they have something to say to the world. They have a lesson to teach, a lesson so valuable to them, whether it be moral, academic or unrealistic, that they’ve created an entire story for the purpose of teaching that lesson. Writers can clearly show the flavour of the time, the voices that were most important, and the fears that drove that period’s actions. Writers write for themselves, yes, but more greatly, they write so that their voices will be heard by those who desire or can learn from their message.

Many people in mainstream society, think that writers are just socially acclaimed aspects of culture without monetary recoveries. But in fact, there are plenty of well-paid careers in a span of areas that require excellent writing skills. According to Occupational Information Network (ONET), a US Department of Labor database that compiles detailed information on hundreds of jobs, and looked at a salary many workers to find positions with a median annual salary of more than $55,000 that require writing skills. ONET ranks how important the ability to communicate information and ideas in writing, so others will understand is in any job, assigning each a "writing importance level" between 1 and 100, where a higher score indicates more writing skills are required. It also breaks down each occupation's projected growth from 2014 to 2024. 14 well-paying positions with a writing-importance level of 81 or higher and a projected growth of at least 2%.

Just like any other spiritual or cultural community, a writer’s community gives an addictive sense of belonging. But unlike other communities, a writer’s community is a representation of the bonds shared over distance, time, and change. It’s free from trolls and useless negative comments, instead, it’s the arena where writers can bare themselves without judgement. Socialising with fellow humans, simply knowing somebody else is on the same journey as us, can be beneficial in many ways. Being part of the writer's community can help identify someone's own voice better.
