Weekly Writing Prompt:

What does spring smell like to you? Pick one specific smell and write about it--in any way you choose. 

English Writing

Do you feel this way about English writing? You're not alone ...

English writing is more than organized letters, words, and punctuation.

It's communication

This communication becomes the written proof documenting the stories we tell our friends and family, the information we share about our products and services at work, and the educational materials we pass on to educate the next generation.

Essentially, it is the way we communicate with each other and document our personal and work lives, family traditions, and even our customs and heritage.

And, your words are the legacy you leave for others to remember you. A way, perhaps, for your soul to leave a mark here. 

Without English writing … in some form or fashion our lives--past, present, and future--are hidden within the mind.

That's why we teach children to read and write. Why we cajole teenagers into communicating. And, why learning to speak and write in foreign languages is important for commerce and trade ... but also for much, much more--including world peace.

But, writing is hard work. Difficult. Arduous. And, demands our time. 

Never has a teacher heard more moans, groans, and swearing from students than when he or she said, "I'd like you to write ..." 

But why is this so?

Because, to write well you must have a thought to write. 

And to write a thought, you must know how best to write it. To communicate it ... so others will understand--even if they disagree. 

Hi, I’m Dr. Bahe.

A trained writer and writing instructor who genuinely loves all things writing. 

Yes, I love words. And, crafting them into great sentences. More importantly, I love helping people communicate their important messages clearly and effectively. 

For many years, I taught English or English related subjects. My favorite part was teaching composition. It was where I got to show people how to write through demonstration--usually with their own work.

Showing helped, because telling someone to change a sentence or paragraph oftentimes left the person more confused than before I told them. It's difficult to change something when you don't know exactly how.

Writing is also very personal.

Over the years, I found that people don't like to share it or ask a lot of questions about it. Especially in a public setting, like a classroom. They don't want to be seen as "stupid" in front of their peers. Asking a "stupid" question. But, when shown either privately or through a class demonstration they got it. 

Everyone is different. Each with their own unique gifts. Some people write well, but some have more difficulty and need help.

My love of writing and helping others with their own writing is why I created this site. To provide writing help in an easy to understand, simple way. You can even ask me a question, if you'd like.
