Making the Right Choices

When we start the leisure and creative writing, we write for ourselves. But comes a moment when we are interested to others. At that moment we grow quickly because we fill gaps. Then you try to keep that attitude. Indeed, when we are interested to others, we like to write better, because we learn at the same time. There are compromises.

So the reader finds us more complete. We tell ourselves that there are mistakes but we can work around them, working our style or the the text’s substance, while thinking about the reader.

The reader may not distinguish the imperfections that we see. Indeed the emotion provoked by a text can hide personal errors. Or it is his thoughts that are wrong, without having influenced the text.

The reader distinguishes both the content and the writing’s technique. So we have a real appreciation of his own writing. So we go faster.

Writing under duress becomes harmful if it does not change. To avoid this, you write with your desires, which create the text’s freshness. This freshness must not be abused reworking the text too much. Imperfections are mistakes of meaning or spelling, not the writing’s path, more difficult to modify.

A meaning’s mistake is a phrase that we do not understand anymore or badly, when we read again later. We improve our vocabulary thanks to a dictionary of common names or synonyms.
