The Internet Can Cultivate Writing. Good Writing.

“The Internet makes it easy for people, including professional writers, to publish writing publicly without editing.” “The Internet encourages casual writing and doesn’t reinforce proper writing skills.” “Students would write better if they weren’t on Facebook all the time.” It’s easy to blame the Internet and say that if it didn’t exist, written English would be on solid ground. Let’s be realistic, though. It’s important to note that many of the writing errors we see aren’t necessarily because of the Internet. To improve writing on the Internet, we need to improve writing in general.

However, there is no escaping that for the most effective improvement, quality English and writing education needs to become a political and social priority. Narratively – Human Stories, Boldly Told.

How to Make Beta Reading Work for Us

(again), I’m recycling this guest post I wrote a couple of years ago for Anne R. Allen’s blog. I hope you enjoy!) Ever struggle to make readers’ interpretations of your writing match your intentions? We probably all have. Maybe readers come away with the wrong impression of a character. As writers, we’re so close to our stories it’s impossible for us to know how readers will interpret our words. Sounds Great! Once we have fans and readers of our published work, we might be able to find volunteers who would love a sneak peek at our stories in exchange for feedback of issues they discover. Most writers in that position exchange work with other authors in an “I’ll give you feedback if you give me feedback” beta-reading arrangement. Creative Writing - Coursera.
