Alone, we see only see in part.

Slow your mind to reflect and read a book!

Does raw emotion fuel you?

Survey how your thoughts are forming.

Encourage courteous behaviour in others as a model example.

Personally address certain issues:

  • How do I ordinarily compose what I say?
  • Have I ever considered the best way for me to write?
  • How can I improve my habits so that what I write and say will be clearer, entertaining and forceful?

Once done, your writing “grows up” into actual composing: gather, organize, write, revise, perfect. Much revising and improving goes on in our heads before putting pen to paper or using a keyboard.

  1. Gather your ideas. Think so you may discover what you want to say.
  2. Limit the subject to exactly what is to be told, described, explained or proved.
  3. Arrange your thoughts and their relation to this central idea. Assisted by habits of spelling, punctuation and grammar, write down your ideas.
  4. Review and revise by crossing out at times, inserting a word at other times. Choose words better suited to one’s thoughts while catching errors that slipped by during interest in the first draft of writing.
  5. When satisfied, make a final copy.

At Guiding Star Publications Inc., I seek to help people communicate in more thought-filled ways. With each closing day, another begins an ongoing cycle of life, of growth, of change, greeting new positive possibilities — with our thoughts, words and actions.
