It is just a job in there eyes. I have tried over and over again to learn the right way to speak or write and I have not learned much until I started talking to you, You made me realize that I should take pride in the way I speak or write. It should be proper so that it is not misconstured. Thank you for that. I have always wanted to sound correct and knowledgeable about my laungage for I should it is mine. Over here it is sad because really any subjecy we study I pass greatly but feel as though I have learned nothing, sad. I do not want that for my children, I want them to know that learning is an adventure, not just another day in class with Mrs. what's her name, you know what I am sayingI have thought about home schooling my girls but then that takes away from the socialization they need to learn. On a different note, I know that as I write further down in my life I will get better, thats with anything, as long as I stick to it. I understand what you say when you say you can teach but it dosent mean they will learn. You have to want it, you can not force someone to learn and get better, it is all up to them. I have mwrote a lot of poetry and I actually prefer it, but my writting that is just too personal to give to the whole world. I do not know how else to explain it, it is just to much me to give to all? Well write me back soon and stay in touch! Your friend, Shea Lovekin (more) and earned+3

Second time in two day...I just lost what I was writing again...must have hit something carelessly. Second time in two days...I learn the hard way! regarding your note:- I read the article and have to say I make all these mistakes Writing is a craft that has to be learned...and practised. Today we hear much about people learning new 'skills' when they are made redundant to enable them to re-enter the jobs market. This is a load of baloney, absolute rubbish. The English language is being denigrated by such statements. You cannot give another person a skill. You certainty can pass knowledge on to another but a skill is expertise that comes only with practise. The individual has to do the practising not the one passing on knowledge and hence you cannot give anyone a skill, only the knowledge of how to develop learning into a skill. You may have all the musical knowledge in the world but that does not mean you can play piano, guitar or any other instrument, you may have knowledge of where the notes are on the instruments but the skill of playing only arises through dedicated and continuous practise. So it is with writing. Plot, characterisation, structure etc etc not forgetting grammar and spelling of course all has to coalesce into an acceptable whole. This takes a great deal of practise, as with playing an instrument, we are speaking of years not weeks. Most folks of my age, at least in Britain had a great deal of training in these matters at school, composition was seen to be of great importance as was the study of the English language, the mechanics of how it works. I may be wrong, some clarification from the teachers amongst our number here may indicate that that is the case, but from what I have seen the standard of teaching along these lines is far what it was 50 years ago. Consequently many struggle with expressing themselves on paper. Take note of the comments among the posts on CN, there is quite a bit of wisdom tucked away here, perhaps only a snippet, even a portion of a sentence but accumulate additional knowledge about the craft from such little snippets. It all helps. Another problem is the bad habits picked up with texting, little or no punctuation and diabolical abbreviations, all for the sake of space and time...and the spelling on some advertisements leaves a great deal to be desired. In fact spotting poorly constructed adverts is good practise along with biased news reports that fail to answer the questions arising and so on. Ask what is left out? Again good practise, especially in the plotting part of writing. Gill and I occasionally play a game, I call it 'spot the lingual ....' [I don't write that sort of language here! Be observant about the uses of language and the manipulation of information. All comes with practise and practise is essential to gain skill.
