Watch your language

Writing can be an instinctual process. Sometimes, I may not be thinking too much about what gets put down on paper or how my words are looking on the computer screen. The writing can get ahead of me.

But if I am not careful, I may something unintended. Must consciously pay attention to the text: watch my language and take care of the expression. This care in writing is to make sure of the intended meaning; say something the way it’s meant. And this is the point of my post today.

But even if I mistakenly communicate an unintended meaning, I’m not going to lose myself over it, but cannot emphasize enough that getting the text in its intended form will prevent a lot of heartache especially when it comes to the major points.

This is especially true when it’s utterly imperative one gets it right in all aspects, in the newspapers for example, or a novel. But even websites as well would do good by adhering to a rule of thumb: say it right way, and get the facts correct, at all times.
