I've been a little slow in writing a post this week, mainly because I've not known what to write. I've also been negligent in reading anyone Else's posts but this too has a reason behind it. Essentially what has happened is the computer I usually make use of has been infected with a virus and is giving problems or at least was until this morning. Anyway everything seems to be back to normal so here I am back at it.
As some of you may have noticed most of my posts have a christian slant to them, one thing I like to do is to add photographs to bring them to life but I sometimes wonder what my fellow writers think of my writing. I'm not really a writer but a carpenter and now that I spend so much time actually writing I think I may need a little honest appraisal form you. I'm hoping to write articles for magazines and lately I've been thinking that it may in fact be a good idea if I write a short book. These are of course my own thoughts and so without appraisal from intelligent writers who have experience in writing I have no idea what to make of them. To date the only serious writing that I have in fact done is to write this blog.
So what am I asking of you.
Go into the history of my blog, select any post click on it and read it then come back here and leave your advice.
The type of appraisal I'm looking for is:
Does the article make sense?
Does it have a beginning, a middle and a conclusion?
Does it leave you thinking about what was written?
Was it interesting and finally was it well written?
Please understand, I'm looking for HONEST appraisal nothing else. What you say will have an impact on my writing, you can be sure of that. I'm looking for suggestions so that if possible I can improve my writing with the aim of making a career change to writing.
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all of you. Geoff.
