Hey Shelby,
Those are some really good tips for writing. One that i think is very important is proof-reading. It is really goood to read through your writing at least 3 times so you catch all the little mistakes. I often ask another person to read what I wrote just to be extra careful. Sounds like you really know what you doing. Have a good day.


Shelby -
I love what you said about not letting anyone discourage your writing. Good for you! You are right, your personal writing is your own personal voice. Do not anyone silence that. You are quite bright for realizing this so young! Some people still let what others say and think silence them even as adults.
I have a tip for you as well:
Always write more than you need to - that way you can go back and edit what you have written and not come up short!


I totally agree with the tips you listed on tips. However there are a few things you left out like to remeber not to switch from writing in first person to third . This is a common habit for many writers, starting out saying I to writing using your name. It is also important to remeber to try not to use the word I so often this is called being repetitive. Well that's all from here ( I loved your ending ) Take care

I really like the tip that you put at the end of your post. I really agree with you that writing is apart of you. A tip that I follow when writing is that before I begin, I get a scratch sheet of paper and just make a lot of notes on it, like brainstorming. I write what ever I can think of about the subject. This helps me get on track of what I need to write and some great ideas come out of it also. Bye ;)


Thank you all for commenting on my blog. I really enjoy writing, and might write a book when I get older. When people comment me, I feel as if I am special, and the feeling of that, to me, is wonderful!!
Thank you also for giving me some new tips and some things that I need to watch for.
Cant wait until I hear from you again.

Look at it like the proffesional gaemlbr does. They look at process rather than outcome. They look at what cards they have, what cards have already been chosen, the personality of their opponents, how much each one of them bets, how much money everyone has and then make a decision about whether or not they'll stay in and if so, how much money to bet. If this decision was the best they could do based on the information they had at the time, then it was a good decision, regardless of the outcome. They don't go back and think I should have known that ace was going to be turned over Because they couldn't have known. All they can know, based on statistics, it the chance that that next card will be an ace. All they can know is that their opponent usually bets conservatively. But maybe he just got a date with a girl and he's feeling saucy today. And if the odds are in their favor, then they have to bet. If they let the fear of being wrong overpower their logic, they will make a bad decision.Logic is limited because the information we put into the logical machine is always limited or doubtful. And part of making a rational decision is realizing this, that we can almost never be absolutely sure that our decisions will yield the desired outcome, and preparing for the chance that things won't go the way we want them to.
