Upon being informed that “half of the incoming freshmen at our business schools, who, of course, are all college graduates are now being required to take a basic course in writing because they cannot write a presentable letter or report or proposal,” David McCullough, twice Pulitzer Prize winner and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, called that "a serious national problem."
McCullough believes, “If you can educate someone to be able to express themselves on paper or on their feet, then you have given them something that will be of infinite value not just to themselves but to the whole society ... for the rest of their lives.”
When too many dry rules are dumped on you, especially without their reasons being defined, you can feel overwhelmed. When all you hear from those around you are discouraging words, your incentive, your dream to write, your motivation, and your inspiration simply evaporate.
Finding a useful, but fun, way to refresh your memory of grammar and writing basics and discovering the nine facets of writing you can control empower you to get started straightaway.
Taking the task step by step builds your ability. You can rise above the criticism and the overwhelm. Continually being encouraged keeps you keeping on, for a change. Being infused with a “Never give up attitude” helps you grow as a writer and you appreciate the value of your writing. Recognizing that writing can be your best friend when everyone else has forsaken you is empowering. Defining the Eight Parts of Speech and reviewing their roles and relationships, the colorful mind maps bring English to life. Seeing, feeling, and knowing the benefits and profits A to Z from writing well define good reasons to polish your writing skills.

Go for it. You can do it!
