I like ducks. They’re funny, friendly and peaceful. What they have to do with writing is questionable, but I just like ducks.
Having been a writer for 64 years, I have collected oodles and tubs and gobs of opinions about how it should be done to make it affective and publishable. Some of those opinions are mine, and I will be sharing my
brilliance sentiments with you in the column entitled For What It’s Worth, of FWIW, which I think is the code used in texting.
I taught writing as a secondary teacher of English after working as an editor for two newspapers.
What I’m saying in a not-so-modest way is that I know writing pretty well and would like to share what I know. I read books and blogs on writing every day, and I learn lots of stuff. But I am often pleased that I agree with advice given by writing gurus because I already do it. Therefore, I’ll offer some tips on writing that come from my 64 years dealing with the craft of writing.
