I bet you’ve heard of the Jack of all trades expression before, but have you heard the full version?
Jack of all trades, master of none, though often times better than master of one.
I grew up only knowing half of the expression. Jack of all trades, master of none. The expression put such a downside to learning a variety of skills such as riding a horse and iceskating. I always had an interest in many things, but the saying always brought me down as if I never could be amazing at just one thing like everyone else.
However, I discovered the full expression while in college and it made sense. Knowing all those different skills from throughout the years has let me write about many various topics. Instead of getting stuck to write about only one sport, I can write about many. I can create stories from my past memories – real or not real – and let the reader dive into them.
As a writer, I think it’s great to have many different skills. The more skills, the more opportunities to write something wonderful. Well, if not, there’s always the Internet to look it up.
