My Writing Guidelines - How To Determine If You Are Ready To Write!



As many of you have already read when visiting this site I am a man whose aim is to help develop the Quality of your writing.

 I have been approached by many people who've asked  " What is Quality ?" Others have posed this query. "When is the best time to Write?" Still others have asked. "Is Grammar and Spelling really that important?" A real overwhelming top ranking enigma has to be this one."How do I know if I can write?"


The one which I am asked after I've had conversations and correspondences with these questioners is this.

 "Can You Help Me??"

These four words are the ones I hope to address in this article my friends.

CAN YOU, HELP ME?

The Professor's “How To” Writing Improvement Series Part 3


The Benefits of Editing, Text Reading and Word Processing Programs
By Mike AKA The Professor

The difference between That Skillfully Crafted, Top Prize Winning, Front Page Ready Success and yours is What? The Years Of High Standing as a Product of the Educational System?? The Degrees in those Accredited English Literature and Journalism Courses? The Letters B.A., M.A., Ph.D or even designations like “Teacher, Doctor or Professor” perhaps. If you are like most writers especially those whose self confidence is lacking, the answer that pops into your mind is “Mine just isn't good enough”! But why isn't it “Good Enough?”

Desiderata by Max Erhmann Another Inspiring Work I Love

GO  PLACIDLY  AMID  THE  NOISE  AND  THE  HASTE, AND  REMEMBER  WHAT  PEACE  THERE  MAY  BE  IN  SILENCE.  


As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they, too, have their story.


Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit   If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater or lesser persons than yourself.


 Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in you own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.  


Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you for what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere life is full of heroism.


  Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.


 Take kindly the council of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

 

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. 

 You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.


  And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.


With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.


Strive to be happy.
