Excellent suggestions and points!Thanks for sharing them. Anyone else do something similar or different?
You are so correct. If you seriously want to write, get into a night class at the college also. Don't take the English 101 stuff. Take the creative writing or writing to publish classes. There are many genre to pursue. I am a great technical writer, but creativity is just not there. If I am writing a paper with research to back it up, or stats to compare with a conclusive opinion, I am fine. If I try anecdotal stuff, it is just bland. I know how to teach the different genre, but I lack the verbal creativity to separate from the pack. If you can truly be open to positive criticism and direction, you will succeed. It is the desire that makes great writers and a great editor.I remember reading someone's comment on why an article was titled a certain way, but the story took a totally different direction. There are even classes about publishing a newspaper and all the reasons for the above. I took this to implement into teaching reading and inference skills, but can't remember the actual names for the various types of articles. Like I said there are all types of writing, and you might find the one that fits your style perfectly by getting serious critiques of your work.
