Pacing Example - Using Description to Add Emphasis

I do a lot of reading about writing.  I see a lot of blog posts and chapters in books telling you what to do and, sometimes, why to do it.  What I find both valuable and in short supply are examples showing how.  I’m going to make an effort to do more of those types of posts, as I’ve done below.

I’m an engineer.  I’m trained to solve problems, and I apply that training to my writing.  The following example illustrates how I took a problem section and corrected it.

We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort. ~ Jesse Owens

Risk is Now the New Safe!

We see people in the workplace going through the motions, completing task after given task. A few of those folks take the time to add value to their work while most just see the cycle of repetition as a means to receive the next paycheck. Sometimes it's due to an overworked environment and less than optimal staffing; other times it's a case of employees accepting mediocrity.

You may read the story…

Too Much in My Head

Some days I get to work in the morning, and I can not concentrate for the life of me.  I'm an elementary school teacher, so focus is pretty important if I want to keep my sanity.

But, the thing is that I don't want to continue being an elementary school teacher.  I've tossed some ideas around in the past about how to maneuver out of the classroom, and into a "specials" teacher job, such as a library media specialist, or a technology integration specialist.  But, really, I don't want…

“Nothing Will Be Impossible with God”

Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” The angel answered and said to her, “For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:34-37, (NASB)

Improving Communication Improves the World

The world around you improves each time you ask yourself and others how to improve your communication abilities. Everyone knows how to communicate…right? The truth is everyone does communicate. However, some of us seem to do it better than others?

If you’re anything like me, you want to put and keep yourself in the group of people who do…

Submission for Coaching – Ascanius’ March of the Huldra

Beginning writers submit portions of their work for detailed critique.  See below my line by line comments for Ascanius' "March of the Huldra."

“Watch boy.” A withered hand jerked Endren around. “Tis no time to laugh an’ play.”

I like this much better than the first version.

Endren tried pulling away from the graying man. It was like his shoulder had become part of the city’s grey immobile stones.

Consider “to…

A Huge Thank You To Dan

Dan - I didn't want 2012 to end without sending you a huge THANK YOU. I know you touch the lives of thousands of people each week, and I realize it would be impossible for you to hear each one of our stories and the specifics of the positive influence you've had on each one of us.


This was a brutal year for me when it came to career and business, but it is going to end well and I have lots of people to thank. You in particular, Dan, deserve a special note.


I'm not kidding…

Running Around The Building

I do Music Therapy, and my pianist is my best friend.  She plays for the various choirs I have, and we have a great time together.  Her mother lives at the same assisted living as my mother.  So, our paths cross frequently.  Recently she asked me to keep an eye on her mother while she was out of town.

I arrived to check on “the Momma”, and she seemed well to me.  I asked how she was feeling.  “I don’t feel so good,” she responded.  This was no surprise, as this…

“We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it's our job to invent something better.” ― Chuck PalahniukChoke…

Feet First

About once a month a student in my fitness class will come to me and tell me  their shins hurt, or their knees, or ankles, or hips or…

The first thing I do is glance down at their shoes and ask, “How long have  you had your sneakers?”

“Oh about two years.”

“I think we’ve found your problem. Your feet need more support. Wearing the  right shoe makes all the difference!”

Believe it or not, you should replace your sneakers about every 300 to 400  miles. If you work…

My first and only Drug Deal!

This past Friday, I wrote a blog post titled "Another 30 Minutes of Work Accomplished Today." In there I described one of the worst job experiences of my life. I didn't listen to the whisperings within and dearly paid a price for it.

At the office one afternoon, I was joking with some co-workers that…
