My writing may seem a little clunky for some people. And others find it educational and even motivational. (I love my readers)
I do recognize that my writing needs to improve.
My main goal is to share my story. However, I am making serious efforts at improving and making my words flow better and my thoughts paint a picture.
I was reading some things I wrote a year ago and was amazed at how un-terrible my writing was. I also noticed how much I have improved. Apparently, I entertained a few of my readers even back then.
I graduated in 1994 and thought of myself to be a decent writer at the time, although that is probably my ego talking more than the truth. And since that time, I have not written much of anything. I worked in the retail industry where writing was not a skill that was necessary.
Now I am an internet marketer and blogger that needs to be able to write well…
On Writing Well has been sitting on my bookshelf for about a year. What an appropriate title, is it not? It considered a classic and full of quality information that has lasted through the years. It only took me a couple of chapters to get my money’s worth.
I have made serious efforts to remove as many “I”s from my writing. It has not been easy at all. I remember being told by my Language Arts teachers to keep them to a minimum.
The author immediately dispels that myth and explains that it is not only alright, but expected in this type of nonfiction writing. You could even say that it hit me like a bag of bricks. (who carries a bag of bricks anyways?)
This is a blog! It’s about my life and my experiences. My challenges and my struggles.
Me, me, me, I, I , I!
So, pull up a chair and let’s have some fun getting into my life. 🙂
