    Wonderfully said, James.
    And speaking of writing, I thoroughly enjoy a conversational approach (where and when appropriate) as opposed to something formal and free of errors. This allows people to relax and not feel like they’re walking on eggshells or trying to impress anyone.

    In the end, there are many forms of writing and I embrace each and every one of them, depending on the occasion. So, before anyone even attempts to help others become better, I highly encourage those people to assess the occasion/situation, since the writer may simply be taking a casual approach willingly. Thanks for bringing up the subject!

    Thanks for the kind words Michael. I like what you say about walking on eggshells and trying to impress.

    I hope I didn’t come off as too prescriptive. I just wrote from personal experience. There are probably million (better) ways to help someone write better.

    I understand how hard it is to encourage others to write. Thanks for the tips.

      We all go through this sooner or later. The best thing, in my opinion, is to develop a habit (as opposed to relying solely on motivation, since that tends to be temporary).
      Im slowly embracing more and more writing, and it’s turning into quite a nice and rewarding habit.

      Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    Nice article.

    Not everyone is born with an abundance of writing talent. In fact, for the majority of people, having to sit down and write 300 or 500 words on something feels like an insurmountable task.

    You can help other to become a good writer by following this tips :

    Consider their position

    Make them feel relaxed

    Make them practice

    Show them the writing of others writers

    If in any way possible, be honest with them. Be diplomatic and gentle; but be honest.

    Thanks for sharing this post.
