We all have different talents

by: Marilyn Owen (6 November 2014)

One thing to remember if you need a proofreader to correct spelling and grammatical errors in your important document, is, as my granddaughter aptly expresses, that we all have different talents.

One day, my five-year-old granddaughter announced to me that everyone has different talents. She then proceeded to inform me of all our respective talents as perceived by her. I was delighted to learn that I am good at cooking, while other members of the family can perform astonishing running feats, for example and I cant . . .

My granddaughter had a valid point, which made me think. We cant be good at everything we do, and more importantly, there is many a creative writer who has imagination and literary talent but has difficulty with spelling and grammar. This is really where a good proofreader comes in so useful so that that piece of original and imaginative work is polished and perfected, eliminating all those annoying errors that distract from the writers message.

An error has occurred in script /home/writeit/public_html/config1.inc on line 9: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.© WriteItClearly.com 2006–2022
