Re: Be a Better Writer--GIVING AND RECEIVING CRITIQUE

I agree with Verna. I am still learning myself, but I have seen some bad advice given to some writers on reviews. Not a lot, mind you, but some. If I enjoy an article, I tell the reader.

Re: Be A Better Writer--THE MAGIC ENDING

Jan, for the old minds like me, could you somehow post a brief synopsis on great beginnings, middles, and endings? Just the basics of how to begin, fill in, and end a typical good story. If you could put it all together because I have trouble remembering it all. I want to write a good story, and I'm...

Re: Be a Better Writer--CREATIVITY

Lillian if you can get to "uninstall a program" from your start menu, check all the programs that show they were installed on the date you first started noticing them. Left click on that program and then right click and click on "uninstall". That's what I did and the blue lines went away. It probabl...

Re: Be a Better Writer--Devotionals

I love Verna's devotional. So real and touched the heart and soul. "You always love me" is the thing faith is made of.

Re: Be a Better Writer--Devotionals

It speaks in a loud and sometimes urgent voice that I have sinned so much in the past that no deity alive could forgive me. It twists my...
