Hey every one I am a little nervous because I know I am not a good writer. I have always wanted to write and I have written some articles in high school but never did much with them. I would like to have help from you at Hub pages to help make me better. I am not the type to let people critique me being that it seems most people have no heart and are very rude. I have noticed here at hub pages you all seem to genuinely want to help us struggling to be better writers. So feel free to critique me and I would like to thank in for any help you can give me. I will try my best to repay your favors.
Don't be nervous, Matt, post and I'm sure ppl here will help you. Shoot I'll try to help too if you want.
You need to break things up into smaller paragraphs - it makes it easier to read on-screen.
You need to go back the next day and proof read. You can miss a lot of stuff when you know what you are trying to say and don't pay attention to the words. For example, here is the first "sentence" from the belly fat hub:
"OK guys it our turn, all I here out there is about women losing lose there belly fat, most diets I see have a picture of a women on the cover of container."
I lost track of all the errors...
I'm not really a writer either, but I think this is close to a corrected version of that sentence:
OK guys, it is our turn. All I hear out there is about women losing their belly fat. Most diets that I have seen have a picture of a woman on the cover of the container.
Thank you MontyApollo
It's kinda funny, I gave it the once over before I posted it and never caught that sentence. My mind plays funny tricks on me sometimes. I will definitely go over them tonight and probably find that sort of thing every where though out my articles. Once my head clears.
Wow my punctuation is bad. I will definitely work on that to. I think I try and write so fast it comes out like one long sentence.
I always have to come back and proof-read later; I miss too much when I try to proof something I just wrote.
Welcome!!!! Proofreading, spell-checking, and all that are definitely recommended. I will sometimes look at a hub I wrote awhile back and notice some glaring mistakes or awkward word choices that totally escaped me on the first read-through.
I will go check out some of your stuff, and give you my comments for what they are worth (I'm relatively new here, too). I'm glad you are here. Most folks that hang around at HP are very welcoming and kind. Some can be a tad sarcastic (myself included), but most have good hearts and are willing to lend a hand to a budding writer.
You seem to have at least come to HP to try your best and can obviously take contructive advice - you'll be fine.
And RooBee - you don't know how to be anything other than lovely, bubbly and gorgeous.
I do sarcasm. You stick to beauty
No one is born with the gift of writing ... it's all learned through practice.
What matters is that you are willing to share (at least that's what matters to me). So ... keep writing those hubs.
Wow You all are great, I am very impressed by your willingness to give advice and boost another Hubber up. I want to thank you for all your comments. RC planes are something I find very enjoyable and a great stress reliever after a hard days work. I love RC plane and my D.O Double G named Ripley due to his ability to pass gas allot. Along with my two beautiful girls I have all the subjects I need to write about right here at home.
Thank you all I am hoping that other new Hubbers will learn from this thread as well.
Thank you all I am changing things as you give advise. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Hubbers are a lovely bunch, especially away from the forum... things can sometimes get a little heated on here!
All that hubbers tend to care about are the standard things:-
1) Do not copy and paste anybody elses work
2) Do not spam the forum
3) Do not send freaky emails to fellow hubbers
And thats it! Anybody that doesnt break those three golden rules will get along just fine.
Welcome to HP.
Hi Matt - Welcome to HP. I read your hub on phonics. It has lots of information and great ideas. It does, however, need some fixing with the grammar, usage, and long run on sentences. I would highly recommend a book - The Elements of Style by William Strunk. Get it, study it. It's an easy book to use, and it has really helped me.
Please don't get discouraged. It's apparent that you enjoy writing, and writing is what is going to improve your writing, if that makes any sense. You will see yourself grow in time, the more you write. We will be here watching and willing to help.
I, too, am fairly new here, though, and have found it to be a very helpful, welcoming community. Glad to have you with us!
Thank you so much for all your advise and help.. Doodlelyn thank you for your suggestion, I went ahead and purchased the book and can't wait to receive it. I look forward to being a part of hub pages community for a long while.
