Sometimes I just get fed up writing and would rather have been miles away from a computer on a snowy mountain top with no Internet access.
But when you have two personal blogs, writing 20–100 business email a day, curating two weekly newsletters, writing trade proposals and producing text for three websites launching the next weeks, there are no escape routes. I just have to stick with it, and to throw my computer out the window just feel like a bad idea. I have just bought it.
The good thing is that I love to write. I even like writing better that reading, and “oops” there we have another problem. So to try to get out of this messed up position, I decided to enroll in an MOOC course in “Academic and Business Writing” at edX. I had a weak hope that to be forced to write something different would give me some inspiration. And did it work?
Too early to say, but I am writing this, so that’s a good start, I suppose. I want to develop “a clear voice” to be heard on my blogs and to develop my English writing skills, especially concerning vocabulary, tone, and diction.
