PhTech, I just took some time to review about five of your hubs. You are a good, well-rounded writer. I moved out of the IT world to become first a trainer (writing manuals and teaching) then an author. I had a bit more training and experience writing early on, as I was a writing major in college.
I would say, you have what it takes, as long as you realize one thing: You can always improve. One of the great things about writing is that every single part of it is something we can get better at.
Your basic grammar and spelling need very little improvement. Your writing style is okay, but read more great writers, and you can make it much better.
Your focus is all right, but could really use some improvements. For each article, get very clear on who your readers are, and how they will benefit from reading what you write. Then write to them as an expert, saying, "I've been there, and here's how to get there." Make it a bit more education and a bit less story. (Or, tell a great story and inspire.) Right now, you sit somewhere between the two. Sharpen that focus.
Some things you can do to improve:
- Read the entire HubPages Learning Center (under help) and make a list of capsules and techniques to add to what you are doing.
- Hop hubs using the New Hub Hopper. Learn the criteria very well. Know the difference between okay writing and great writing. And then make yours great.
- Read great literature and essays, and learn from the best.
- Never stop. Commit to it for the long haul.
You will succeed, my friend.
