Good Writers

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Good Writers Are Reader Friendly

A good writer, in my opinion, is
reader friendly, not trying to
prove how many technical words
he/she knows and grammatically

A good writer's work is reader
friendly, and the title not only
pulls attention but holds it.
Good writers unveil one point at
a time to readers. Points are
messy when other ideas and thoughts
are sprinkled in.

Good writers inspire readers to
react. Like:


"It put me asleep."

"I'd like to give that writer a
piece of my mind."

Responses to good writing varies.
The writer's goal is to get a

Writers, from time to time, research
subjects. During the course of research,
writers come across technical words.
It's nice to learn new words, and
interesting as a new topic is appreciated.
However, the process of discovering
technical words is more stimulating
for researchers than readers.

Most people would prefer to skip the
look-up every other word as they read
step. A good writer speaks to the
reader, or the reader comes-away with
"that" feeling.

A good writer isn't trying to prove
anything. Simply, he/she is providing
information to readers that's
grammatically correct.

A good writer will make grammatical
errors, because few get every word
perfect in a writing project. The
editing process is done more than
once to handle them.

Readers will move on to the next
writer if his/her reading pleasure
is interrupted by grammatical
errors, every third or fourth word.

It's very important to slice-away
grammatical errors. Grammatical
errors, too, mark writers as amateurs.

A good writer's work is inviting,
isn't shouting, "I'm smart" and
without grammatical errors.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
