Why Write? The first thing to decide about writing is why? Are you writing for yourself or for others? It does make a difference. If you‛re writing for yourself there are no rules. Whatever you write is correct. If you‛re writing for others. There is a world of difference. There are rules and they must be followed. The idea of you inventing a new way of writing is like swimming the Atlantic Ocean. You can dive in but you can‛t make it. The reader has to be able to understand what you write. Never use “text” language. A lot of people don‛t understand it and almost everyone will think it is amateurish. They would be right. Cute doesn‛t work. You are ridiculing your readers. Use common English or whatever language your readers are. Long words add nothing to your writing any more than one syllable words the whole way through. If this is too difficult you should only write for yourself. Keep a journal or a notebook for your writing. Never show it to anyone. Put in your will that all your writings be burned. Write in some sort of code if you can. Do anything but show it to someone. Your friends will be too kind to tell you your writing is junk. It is but they‛re your friends. When writing for yourself, forget grammar and spelling. Forget sentence structure and paragraph structure. Don‛t concern yourself with any of the rules. They don‛t matter. If you are writing for others there are rules and things you have to do. I‛ll write more about his at a later time.
