Annie...absolutely. Thanks for catching that. Kimzani, please forgive me. That has never happened before.

Chimpanzee = autocorrect for Kimzani?!

One more thing, if you send an article, send it in the body of the email--no attachments.

Writers, authors, bloggers, or anyone building an online presence. I have a chance to get your content in front of millions of loyal readers. I'll be spending the next several days editing articles for The Good Men Project and would love to feature your content.

If you're interested, check out the website http://goodmenproject.com/ and see what we publish. The content has to be about or for men in some way--no general stuff. 30% of our writers are women--we welcome submissions from women. If you have something, email the completed submission to kconstable29@gmail.com. Also, send your bio and an email address associated with a Gravatar profile (the email address, not the profile link). This call is open until Friday night at 11 pm CST. I'm a Lead editor, so I can publish articles in any section. Looking forward to helping you get exposure!

Hey Terri,

I'm a little late in the game, but I used to teach language arts in a "Classical School," and there is an amazing writing tool out there that a lot of people don't know about, unless they have homeschooled their kids or taught the Classical method, but it revolutionized my writing-It's a DVD set from the Institute for Excellence in Writing: Teaching Writing: Structure and Style.  

Anyways, the key point that was life changing, not only for me, but also for my young students was to get your thoughts on the paper!  In fact, my students had to write in pen, could not erase, and I showed them an example of what this would look like, and it was a messy paper (I even had to educate the parents, because for some reason, we all want beautiful first drafts, lol).  There's obviously a lot more to it, but the basic gist is this: Writing, grammar, and spelling are three very separate disciplines, and just like it is difficult to switch what you are doing when you are in a ZONE, it is very difficult for your brain to switch between the three disciplines when you are starting a writing piece.  

To get you going, I would highly suggest, googling "writing starters," get yourself a pen, plenty of paper, and time yourself for 15 minutes.  Pick a fun topic, and go for it.  Ok, this link is for kids, but I think it's a lot of fun if you want to do creative writing-I used to write right along with my students, and it would be so much fun what we would come up with: 

http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/story-starters/writing-prompts/

I wouldn't even worry about editing your first few.  Just practice writing, and getting your thoughts onto paper.  

Sorry for the long answer :-)  I hope that you find your stride with writing.  Good luck, and please keep us updated!

First of all, I apologize for not starting a new discussion and just posting on the wall.  I appreciate all the great advice and feedback . I sent what I had written to my daughter, who I know will have no problem being totally honest with me.  I'm sure that the more I write the easier it will get.
