Many years ago a young man decided that he wanted to be a writer but he wasn’t sure what kind of stuff he really wanted to write. He just wanted to be totally dynamic and cover everything in his work.
So, he studied and wrote and wrote some more trying to perfect his art. This went on for many years. When asked what he really wanted to achieve as a writer he often repeated that he wanted to write things that everyone in the world would read and words that people would react to in a really emotional way.
He just wanted his words to affect them deep down, and make them scream, and howl in pain and deep emotion.
After struggling as a writer and having to take other jobs to get by, he found what he really wanted.
He now works for Microsoft as an error message writer.

If you want to write, you have to read, read and read! Reading will not only inspire you to write, but it also enables you to gain knowledge, valuable ideas, and learn many different ways to put your thoughts together!
I find reading a joy, whether it is an article or a book, and always carry reading materials with me wherever I go. Yes, it might also make me look smart, but really, I don’t want to waste my time doing nothing.
Reading can spark my own thoughts of what I want to write about. Sometimes, a word, an image, or a title inspires the creativity in me. It is advised that we should write what we know.

I’ve created quite a number of writing-for-web tutorials which are scattered about on the internet. I thought it would be a useful to make them all accessible in one place. Here’s a list of some really helpful ones, designed for writers desiring to establish a platform of contacts and fans in the writing world of the web - a thriving and progressive community.
One of the requirements of modern agents and publishers, is for the new writers they take on to already have something called a ‘platform.’ What better way to establish one, than to use the internet to connect with potential fans from all over the world.
I created this first set of tutorials as a reference point for both writers seeking to better their use of the written English, and also for speakers of foreign languages learning to write English correctly.
The Art of written English
Written English Part 1: The apostrophe
Written English Part 2: The Comma and the Full Stop
Part 3: Semi colon and hyphen
Part 4: the dash, question mark and exclamation mark
Part 5: the inverted commas, brackets and capitalization
This second set of articles deals with getting your online content in shape. It discusses the value of adding friends to your network, and the art of sharp writing which attracts readers and keeps them hooked on your work. Issues of getting the right content to the right people, and how to keep topped-up on a good supply of ideas, are also tackled.
Skill and technique are examined, and several ways in which we can become the sought-after web writer that everyone wants to read. This is a definitive writing series for anyone serious about building a career in online writing.
How to make your online content earn you money and recognition
Part one - Why add friends
Part two - How to keep people reading your work
Part three - How to keep the ideas coming
Part four - Developing skill and technique
Part five - Setting out your article for internet skimming

If you ask any American what language they speak in their country, in most cases the reply will be that it's English. However, American English sometimes has a completely different vocabulary to British English.
Many Americanisms have entered the language on this side of the Atlantic, but they are a long way from being established. It's quite strange how some Americanisms have been accepted but others have completely failed to make any impression on British English.
On our side of the pond we say: apartment, ball park, buddy, cab and cookie. However, we don't say: pacifier, realtor, popsicle, duplex and gurney. (A British English spell checker objects to these words.)
The way words are used is also different sometimes. For example if you ask an American how they are, you will get the answer, 'I'm good!' In English English we say, 'I'm well.'
Among the young in Britain, there are those who regard American English as 'cool', but their use of this alien (to us Brits) tongue causes annoyance amongst those who don't.
For more information on this and examples of how British English varies from region to region, you might find these articles useful.
