    No Passion

    Without passion, heart, and soul writing is nothing more than words on a blank screen. No feeling, no meaning, and no thought to be understood.  I have lost the spark.

    This article I found at one of my sites and is not my material. However it is sound advice when a writer needs/wants a person to read his material for editing, or anything else he needs done. Be sure the person you choose to read your material is aware of this information before...

    Fifty Shades Of English

    The first time I ever became conscious of my writing was when I met a girl named Nikki. Nikki was a tall slender girl with green eyes, flowing black hair, and light skin. I would talk continuously though text message to her. You could say we had a “thing.” Nikki and I became...

    So Many Started

    Hi All,I have been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil instead of a rattle. I have always loved to read and as I got older I just wanted to write a novel. I write poetry, articles, essays, just about anything that had to do with words. I even write Haiku. The one...

    When I am trying to write,

    it makes me appreciate my English teachers all the more. I should have paid more attention. Adverbs and prepositions, pronouns and conjunctions: what a mess I was. Working with a tutor helped, though I was the guy who always wanted to be outside playing ball and not stuck in...

    My Throat Ties Knots Around Itself And I Can't Say A Word.

    When I speak of something important, every sound trips over itself until my sentences turn into a blended mass of sharp, confused, jutting, distressed syllables. Equally, when I write, my fingers just stumble around, feeling keys and paper and pen for some hint of the right words...

    I think the best way to improve your writing

    skills is to read. Read as many books as possible and you will notice your mind is able to put things into words in new and interesting ways. The more literary influences you have, the more interesting your writing will be. I've noticed this is true of myself anyway.

    Death And Bridges

    Micheal closed his eyes took a deep breath, and jumped. He wasn't afraid of falling, he was only afraid of what would happen next. What if this didn't work? He didn't want to live the rest of his life in a hospital bed. He knew it was stupid to kill himself over simple problems...

    Some Thoughts From An Experience Writer

    As an expert academic writer, university writing instructor, and professional editor--the first thing you need to know is that writing is a process not a product. Learning how to write even reasonably well takes time, dedication, attention to detail, and an ability to understand...
