“The desire to write well cannot be fulfilled without hard work.
Dean Koontz

I suppose it all depends on what you want to write.
If it’s a story (and I have read a lot of Dean Koontz books), there is a lot of work involved in research, planning, plot, characters, and a few surprises to keep the reader interested.
Writing for a blog post isn’t necessarily hard work, but it requires thought and direction.
What comes easily to some is difficult for others, but the desire is the same: to write well.
I try to, I check my spelling and grammar to hopefully keep my readers interested as nothing puts me off more than a typo or bad editing. I read one book and the main character changed halfway through. I didn’t bother finishing it or buying anything else by that author.  However, mistakes can slip through and sometimes when I’m revisiting a post, I see it and amend it immediately.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hehe! I’ve done the same when I’ve visited past posts! I try very hard to eliminate grammar and spelling errors but they still happen…

  2. Sadje says:

    I think that reading a post after publishing helps.

  3. I agree that writing an interesting novel requires a lot of work at every stage.

    I know when I write I make a few grammar mistakes. I dont revisit posts often. I just hope my readers will continue to stick with me!
