    Relearning how to write.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by curiousPaul, Feb 28, 2015.

    I have lost my ability to write correctly. I am a senior citizen and have a disability in writing style. I need your patience more than you know. I am slow of wit and it takes me time to understand the rules to follow. I seem to babble some and lose my order of sentence structure, as well as using every new topic with a new paragraph. Then there's story writing as well. curiousPaul

    You seem to be doing very well - keep it up!

    ETA: And knowing the areas where you struggle will probably be a great tool in improvement. If you're willing to take your time, you can draft what you want to write, and then go over it to check that you're not "babbling" and to be sure you starting new paragraphs as needed.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Watching spacings on things like this. It looks and sounds a little like you're thanking yourself. :agreed:

    Actually, new topics call for new paragraphs. ;) So you're fine there.

    I like your choice of words--- e.g., "slow of wit," "babble some." It tells me you've got a creative mind with a good touch of poetic expression. You're ahead of a lot of people in that.

    Yes, welcome, and do hang around. You'll find some good help here.
