writingtipsIt pays to read through your spam filter, sometimes. You will be amazed by what you may find. Along with the usual spams, you could either find a legit comment or a piece of inspiration. I have found such comments.

The other day, I found a curious message, in my spam filter. An apparent new blogger asked a question. “What tips or advice do you have for an aspiring writer?” “What tools or platform do you use?” I am honestly surprised by this set of questions.

From this class, I would learn a simple lesson, “Ask questions about what you’re reading and don’t settle for surface reading.” As we were reading a play on “Dracula”; I don’t think logic or analytical thinking would be of much help. Would you? Continue reading
