Reading Have Purposes, Needs, Interest, Knowledge and Backgrounds

Just as I write god picked out for me. Writers have a purposes, so do readers. Among other purposes, readers often learn about a subject, assess or evaluate ideas and arguments, or understand opposing perspectives. And like writers’ purposes, readers’ purposes are strongly affected by our own , interests, and backgrounds.  George, my dad for example, were driven by his awareness of the challenges faced by friends and family members who had served in the military. His readers were probably drawn to his post by similar personal experiences-knowing unemployed veterans, working in green jobs themselves, living in a region with many unemployed veterans, or simply having read an article or having heard a radio report about the issue.

As writers craft their contributions to a written conversation, I would ask what readers are likely to be. I would reflect on  readers’ values and beliefs, determine what readers are likely to know about a subject, and take into account readers’ likely experiences- if any with the subject. They consider what readers need to know about a subject, and what readers might be interested in knowing. I would ask why potential readers would want to read my document-and what might cause readers to stop reading. I try to understand and connect with readers.

I believe one of the most important ways in which writing situations resemble spoken conversations is reliance on taking turns. In spoken conversations-at least in those that are productive-people take turns sharing their ideas. To move the conversation forward, speakers build on what has been said, often referring to specific ideas or arguments and identifying the speakers who raised them. They show respect for the contributions made by others and help speakers align themselves with or distance themselves from other members of the conversation.

Even when writers do refer directly to other sources, writers are likely to influence thinking about a subject to a conversation that we’ve read, heard, seen, and experienced will shape your thinking about the subject by doing so, these sources will effect the information, ideas, and arguments in a document. Writers builds on the work of others. Most importantly in ways which writing situations resemble spoken conversations is reliance on taking turns.

My purpose of writing conversation are needs, interests and backgrounds. I write using the gift of writing is unique. I have considered the ability to write well and a special gift. Taking the first step even I don’t see the whole staircase and don’t settle for anything less!

Being a writer is closer to possible than you might have believed. Right in front of me all the time. When I can’t see is that right over the next hill is something amazing, a new level.

MY DREAM OF WRITING CONVERSATIONS ALLOW YOU TO ADOPT A ROLES

My Dream of writing god picked out for me deserves to be honored just as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy today. I honor Dr. Martin Luther King by living his dream. I am honoring my dream I will write and pray on Dr. Martin Luther King’s day as he always said “I HAVE DREAM”.

If I can’t  fly, then I will run, walk. If I can’t walk, crawl, but whatever I do I will keep moving. I encourage you keep on moving.  Our dreams are gifts from God. Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase and don’t settle for anything less! Start today, each gifts are unique. I have considered the ability to write well as a special dream gift from god and honoring my dream of writing.

In spoken  conversations, we often take on roles. A speaker might explain something to someone else, in a sense becoming a guide through the conversation. Another speaker might advance an argument, taking the role of an advocate for a particular position.  These roles shift and change as the conversation moves along. Depending on the flow of the conversation, a person who explained something at one point in the conversation might make an argument later on.

A similar form of role-playing and shifting takes place in written conversation. The roles writers take on reflect my purpose, my understanding of  reading, and the types of documents I plan to write. In written conversation, what I write and read communicate with one another.

Writing  has a purpose more than writing a document, learn about a particular topic or improve skills, and writing as much for myself and readers. My  purpose for writing conversation are needs, interests and backgrounds. I write using the gift of God picked out for me. Each gift of writing is unique. I have considered the ability to write well and a special gift. Taking the first step even when I don’t see the whole staircase and don’t settle for anything less!

Being a writer is closer to possible than you might have believed. Right in front of me all the time. If you enjoyed this post, I’d be very grateful you’d help it spread by emailing it to a friend, or share it on Twitter or Facebook. Thank You!

WRITING CONVERSATIONS HELP YOU SHARE INFORMATION, IDEAS, AND ARGUMENTS

I write using the gift God picked out for me. Each gift of writing is unique. I have considered the ability to write well and a special gift. Much like a spoken conversation, a written conversation involves an exchange of words, however, the people engaged in the conversation communicate through written documents.  Just as I listen to what’s being said before contributing to a conversation most writers begin the process of writing about a topic by reading.

Among writers and readers becomes a circular process in which the information, ideas, and arguments shared through documents lead to the creation of new documents.

Consider writing I have always thought about writing a book. I urge you to consider it. It provides an opportunity to share your expertise. It provides an opportunity to establish authority. It provides an opportunity to differentiate yourself. It provides an opportunity to expand your market. It provides an opportunity to launch a business. Start now 1,000 words per day. Whether you realize it or not ,  you are an expert.  The problem is you take your knowledge, experience, or skill for granted.

Writing as Conversation

Why think of Writing as Conversation? I write using the gift God picked out for me. each gift of writing is unique.I have considered the ability to write well and a special gift.  Learning to write is similar to learning other complex processes, such as playing musical instrument, taking up a new sport, or figuring out how to work with people. Learning to write takes time and effort. It helps if I can turn to others for guidance and advice. Most important, it  helps if you can connect what you’re learning to what you already know.

You already know how conversations work online and off.   Like most people, I don’t just jump right into the conversation. Instead,  I listened for a few minutes and thought was being said.  Perhaps I learned something new. Eventually, you added your voice to the conversation, other members of the group picked up on what you said, and the conversation moved along.  The same thing happens when you join a new group online.

Whether I join a discussion board or a Facebook group, more than likely I listen in (or read what’s been posted) to learn about  the group’s interests before I make posts. I can use the understanding of how conversations work to become a better writer. By thinking of writing as a conversation,  I  realize that good writing involves more than simply stating what you know. I see writing , instead, as a process of joining reflecting on, and contributing to a conversation about what the topic or an issue.

Thinking of writing as a form of conversation allows me  to build on skills I already possess. In addition, because written conversation allows take place over much longer periods of time than spoken conversations do, I can use conversational skills to far greater advantage. Today, many of us are likely to engage in conversations through writing as speaking. Some of us prefer a text message to a phone call.  Some of us spend more time using e-mail than talking with friends. Some of us spend entire evenings on Web discussion forums, sharing information or arguing about the best new games, music, or movies. Some of us post, read, and reply to blogs on a regular basis. And some of us spend more time keeping up with friends on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumbler than we do hanging out together.

Interestingly, if you ask people who spend significant amounts of time online whether they do much writing, they’ll often say they don’t. They don’t think of creating text messages, e-mail messages, status updates, comments, notes,  forum posts.  We all have writing lives. You probably do much more than you think. Writing involves typing on phones, tablets, and computers. Handwriting  includes everything from grocery lists to notes taken in class to personal letters.

In conclusion,  I’m happy when I write. Using the gift God picked out for me. Each gift of writing is unique. I have considered the ability to write well and a special gift.  Next week  I’ll post about Conversations Help You Share Information, Ideas, and Arguments

WRITING

Writing is often referred to as a mysterious process. Some people even consider the ability to write well a rare and special gift. Well…perhaps. But only if you’re talking about the ability to write a prize-winning novel or a poem that will be celebrated for generations. If, on the other hand, you’re talking about conveying information, ideas, and arguments clearly and convincingly, the writing process is anything but mysterious.

In fact, once you realize that writing shares a surprising number of similarities with participating in a conversation, you’ll find that writing is an activity you can approach with confidence.
