"The key to writing fast is knowing and perfecting a few."

Alisa Brownan from projecthappilyeverafter says to be a newspaper reporter, write guest blogs and magazine articles, and she ghost and co-author books. She also claims to spend only 6-7 hours typing daily to write between 5,000 and 10,000 words a week!

Article first appeared on problogger.net and if you like what Brownan advices, then follow her @alisabow:

Here the 6 step system, experienced Alisa Brownan uses to write her articles quite fast:

Step 1: Know what you want to say before you sit down. As soon as you finish any blog, start thinking about your next one. Go over lines in your head.

Step 2: Pick the basic format you will use to organize your blog. Most blogs fall into one of the following organizational templates:

  • Q & A – Someone poses a question and then you answer it.

  • Tips: You start with a couple paragraphs of explanation followed by a list of tips.

  • Story: Once upon a time something happened to me, I learned someone from it, and now we’re at the end.

  • List: This might be a list of great websites, great books, or great people to follow on Twitter. This is where we fail way, way too much.

  • Quiz or Test: You pose a series of questions or offer a check off list that allows the reader to figure something out

Step 3: Start writing and don’t stop until there are no words left in your head. Don’t stop for typos. Don’t stop for grammar. Don’t stop because you lose your train of thought. Insert quick notes as you write, such as CHECK NAME SPELLING, FIND URL, or WHAT IS THE WORD I WANT HERE? I use that last one quite frequently.

Step 4: Read your blog from beginning to end. Fill in holes. Tinker. Replace your all caps notes with real text.

Step 5: Read out loud once or twice. This will help you catch typos, pinpoint really awkward writing, and help you tighten things up.

Step 6: Post it!

An interesting list of 51 mispronounced words it's been posted by DailyWritingTips. A the moment we write this post, comments number by 297, from people who have contributed to the list or have made appreciations on the topic. There is a word of caution, though: "I’m writing from an American perspective" says DailyWritingTips.

At least one of these is, in our view, a lost cause: #21 the two pronunciations of forte. We’ve never heard any English-speaker use it to mean 'strong point' and pronounce it according to French rules — everyone we’ve ever heard pronounces it the Italian way. If you want to get really picky, the masculine form of the French adjective is 'fort' — if it should be pronounced in English according to French rules, then how come English has adopted its feminine form 'forte'? Reasons are lost in the mists of time — let’s just get on with it!

1. aegis - The ae in this word is pronounced /ee/. Say EE-JIS/, not /ay-jis/. In mythology the “aegis” is associated especially with the goddess Athene. It is her shield with the Gorgon’s head on it.

2. anyway - The problem with this word is not so much pronunciation as the addition of an unnecessary sound. Don’t add an s to make it “anyways.” The word is ANYWAY.

3. archipelago - Because the word is from Greek, the ch is pronounced with a /k/ sound. Say /AR-KI-PEL-A-GO/, not /arch-i-pel-a-go/.

4. arctic - Note the C after the R. Say /ARK-TIK/, not /ar-tik/.

5. accessory - the first C has a “hard” sound. Say /AK-SESS-OR-Y/, not /ass-ess-or-y/.

6. ask - The S comes before the K. Say /ASK/ not /aks/.

7. asterisk - Notice the second S. Say /AS-TER-ISK/, not /as-ter-ik/.

8. athlete - The word has two syllables, not three. Say /ATH-LETE/, not /ath-uh-lete/.

9. barbed wire- Notice the AR in the first syllable. Say /BARBD/, not /bob/.

10. cache - The word is of French origin, but it does not end with an accented syllable. A cache is a hiding place or something that is being hidden: a cache of supplies; a cache of money; a cache of drugs. Say /KASH/, not /ka-shay/.

We don't want to steal the whole post from DWT, so for the next 31 words you would have to head over the original post. Any contributions this far?

Surely you've read a few or at least, one book about how to become rich because it's the human nature to look for pleasure and commodities. I have spent some time with professional coaches that helped me out on personal developing and showed some necessary steps, everyone dreaming of being rich, before they can accomplish and become such a dream.

Now, many of course will be thinking that this is not a dream since many ( very few thought) had worked hard and earned enough money to accumulate millions and millions. Some others will start arguing that this post doesn't even deserve the attention because it is not written by a rich man. We will accept your discrepancies with humility but let tell you what is saying one of the top 100 blogger by Technorati and top influencers on the web according to the Wall Street Journal, Neil Patel.

There is not such an incredible revelation but he goes right to the point of what is expected for a regular person, in order to perform in the direction the money flows. After reading his post here, please don't go: Damn it! I have none of these. Now I will never become a millionaire.

QuickSprout asserts that you can become rich only if you meet these four criteria: Inheritance, Stunning physical attributes, Knowledge, Creativity and Willingness.

The co-founder of these three Internet companies: ACS, Crazy Egg, and KISSmetrics, closed his post being quite strict on his postulates, "Hopefully you fall into one of these categories or else the chances of you becoming a millionaire are probably worse than the lottery... If you aren’t you better learn to, or don’t waste your time trying to become rich."

Grammar, Obama's Speaking
Photo by -raggle-
Andy Borowitz is a comedian and writer whose work appears in the Huffingtonpost, The New Yorker and The New York Times, and at his award-winning humor site, borowitzreport.com. He wrote a very English teachers essay last week that let many speculating of the President-elect Barack Obama's style of speech.

Teachers in the grant with Antioch University had chose areas of their practice, to research via inquiry projects that examined both quantitative and qualitative student data, and aligned with best practices in teaching English Language Learners.As consequence, Antioch University released a free curriculum for working with English Language Learners which included strategies to cope with the complete sentences stirs controversy that Borowitz speaks in the Huffingtonpost.

The modeled strategies that TLC project proposed may:

Be adapted for use in K-8 classrooms;
Employ multiple teaching techniques for English learners, including those described in the CREDE standards (in Teaching Transformed, by Tharp, Estrada, Dalton and Yamauchi, 2000), and in Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners (Echevarria, Vogt, & Short, 2004);
Are collaborative and constructive;
Build trust and relationships among participants; and
Help participants learn about and reflect on the experience of English learners

There is nothing alienating in here and we don't think that "talking with complete sentences there and also too talking in a way that ordinary Americans like Joe the Plumber and Tito the Builder can't really do there, I think needing to do that isn't tapping into what Americans are needing also" as Borowitz cites.

Obama is a very educated man and we all love hear a person like him talking in such a perfect manner. We disagree with Davis Logsdon of the University of Minnesota when he says that "Every time Obama opens his mouth, his subjects and verbs are in agreement,...If he keeps it up, he is running the risk of sounding like an elitist."

Wow! Now results that if Mr President speaks correctly, it may sound jarring for some. Is this what students are learning as Critical Thinking?

From our experience, we do know that writing web documents is a different process from writing for print, and if you simply move your print documents onto weblogs, you are not using the medium to its best advantage. Be aware then, If you are including textual information on your blog, you should rewrite or adapt your materials to the style of the genre.

Bradblogging is a good place to find online resources about how to write on your web site and he advices on many topics for those in the blog business. If you happen to visit Bradblogging, as you should do, you will feel immediately compelled to stay, browse, scan and subscribe. Why? The presentation of his page is eye-catching, design, graphs, pictures and the length of posts, so short that you won't spend more than a few second to get to the point. I encourage every blogger to write short posts, web readers are lazy and don't always appreciate to read long posts.

So, you have to find ways of how to invite your readers to stay over and one of them is the text presentation, the good use of bold text, which was analysed by Bradblogging and that we cite here:

"Text that sticks out of the article will draw the reader’s eye.

Easier time for the reader to scan your article for important keywords and/or phrases.

Not everyone has time to read your article. They can grasp a basic sense of what your trying to say through bolded text.

Bolded points and information will make the article more pleasing to the eye.(Bradlblogging secret success.)

Your brain can create a bridge between bolded phrases making the actual reading part take much less time.

Finally, with the extra time that a visitor saves by scanning one of your articles, they could either: Subscribe, Comment, Read/Scan Another One Of Your Articles or
Buy an Advertisement"

How do you write your posts? Do you think is useful to abide by these rules?

This post was written to attend book writers but can be easily translated to the work many freelancers are trying to perform and it's based on the Chronicle of Higher Education writer, Lynn Worsham:

- Familiarize yourself with the types of articles that a journal publishes and only submit work appropriate for that journal.

- Pay close attention to the tone and style of work published in the journal and try to duplicate it in your own work. ...

- Placing your work in the context of articles previously published in the journal is good scholarly practice and helps make your article a better "fit" for the journal.

- Follow the journal's submission rules — exactly.

- Develop a healthy attitude toward rejection. You know from the outset that competition is fierce, so maintain a positive attitude.

Can you add something else to the list?

ou all know how popular and read is The Times The following extract are part of When Spell-Check Can’t Help and adapted from After Deadline, a weekly newsroom critique overseen by Philip B. Corbett, the deputy news editor who is also in charge of The Times’s style manual.

Since most writers and bloggers encounter similar troubles, Cogitate thinks these observations might interest all readers, too. The goal, however, is not to chastise, but to point out recurring problems and suggest solutions.

"When we stumble over sound-alike words, readers accuse us of turning our editing chores over to a computer program (and not a very sophisticated one).
[...]
Here’s a reminder from The Times’s style book:

reason (n). Both because and why are built into the meaning of reason. So avoid the reason is because and the reason why. Write The reason is that the mayor got more votes and She found out the reason the mayor won. Usually a phrase like reason why the decision was made can be shortened to reason for the decision."

All people is familiar with the universalizing of English language. What not all people is familiar with, is the kind of English you should learn in order to communicate in the business world. English is English, some might be arguing, but we have American and Britain English and both are understandable and useful. However, is the American one that most travelers, business man and people is getting in touch with and learning it.

Here we offer some useful phrases and idioms to talk about communication in the business field:

get straight to the point = talk directly about something rather than going around the subject.

"He got straight to the point in the meeting."

beat around the bush = not talk directly about something.

"Please don't beat around the bush."

go round in circles = not get to the point or reach a conclusion.

"We're going round in circles here. Perhaps we should go back to the beginning."

kiss and tell = tell the newspapers about your relationship with someone famous.

"This Sunday there's going to be a great kiss and tell about the new Prime Minister."

set the record straight = say what really happened so that there are no misunderstandings.

"He really set the record straight about what happened in the Board Meeting."

give someone the low-down = give all the details, inside story or gossip.

"Just as well she gave me the low-down on my new boss before I met him."

stay in touch / contact = not lose contact with someone.

"Please stay in touch after you leave the company."

David Armano writes for Business Week and discusses the problem marketers are confronted today. He says "A consumer can be any number of things—sometimes all at once. And that fact is driving marketers, businesspeople, and brand managers nuts. So what do we do? I propose we become conversation architects."

But what it means to be an "conversation architect"?

Using social tools such as YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, Ning,or those still growing, we have to "market to each other", in other words, it's not enough communicate but facilitate the flow of information in all ways.

Armano has blog where he wants to complete the "merits of conversation, transparency, authenticity, facilitation, participation", etc. He builds up the discourse on social networks and internal/external properties. These questions arised at the end. Want to chime in?. Questions transcripted:

1. How will these initiatives relate to one another?
2. Will they be able to scale at the same rate or will some pull ahead of others?
3. How much redundancy will occur between them?
4. Will new tools need to be developed to coordinate internal/external and social activities?
5. What platforms will best be served for research vs. communication?
6. Which systems will demonstrate the most flexibility to adapt?

Making the most of any given situation means going beyond feeling and acting rather on principle writes Crystal Redhead-Gould.

She is the owner Virtual Assistant owner and we really like the way of making business. If you're thinking of money, then go and visit Mb and you will mature you're very own ideas.

Now is a good time to give them [your ideas] some thought. (short post republished from fivestarexecutives.com

1. Did I do my very best in all the circumstances that I had an opportunity to?

2. Did I make my customers feel that they are special and give the quality of service I’d give if that was the only customer I had? Cause as a cogitate guy, the best testimonial is the one from a deeply satisfied customer or client.

3. Did I use my down time to improve the quality of service I offer?

4. Am I satisfied with my work ethics?

5. Do I love what I do, because if you don’t, the answer to all the above will be "no."

Have a great week-time is precious, spend it wisely. Don't waste it!!

While some are still visiting this blog in hope they will find the secrets of how NOT to make money, We still lack of time to dedicate it and write specially for those our dearest readers. In the mean time, please head over this blog to learn about a series of post on info-product.

Now back to our matters, we've received a visit in one of our blogs from a person who is dedicated to learn Spanish at all costs. The latest post is on bad ass materials of how to learn the Cervantes' language.

Well, is hearing English bad for you mental state? Is it bad reading a book while you’re on holiday? Don’t you watch TV in your free time? Is it weird? NO! So why would it be weird doing all those things in Spanish? It’s just another language which I (and you) happen to not speak fluently (yet). Therefore I try to avoid people who say crap (yes, again, CRAP!) like that. For me that’s quite hard, as my own parents say the same things and I’m spending 3 weeks of my summer with them… But, just keep saying to yourself: “I’m not a quitter! I WILL speak Spanish! I’m not very good at it now, but I will. And I will prove all those people wrong, because I know hearing, reading, seeing, living Spanish each and every is *good* for me.” [/brainwash mode]


So. there you go, are you a quitter or an endurer.

I was talking today via Gmail with a friend of us and he just gave us a tip on this note. The launching of this blog was made in Spanish but offers guides and tools on how to work with translations. In its sidebar you will find plenty of resources, both in English and Sapnish.

Tradutósfera [es] was discovered because we were looking for experiences the translators have in Global Voices, and then we got to the interview of Spanish Lingua Editor, Juan Arellanos.

Using Google, you might be able to read the whole interview about editor experiences with translations in Global Voices.

_My name is …. What should I call you?
_Hi, I am ….
_ Hi, …. I am pleased to meet you.
_ I take my hat off to you.
_It’s rare to meet someone as imaginative and eloquent as you.
_ It’s good of you to notice that.
_ Do you know what else?
_ Ok. If you are, then you are.
_ I often ask myself that same question.
_ Would you like coffee?
If you insist….
Obviously, I would.
_ Are you ….?
Of course, I am ….
_ Did they teach you to talk that way in school or did you make that up all by yourself?
_ It doesn’t make sense to dwell on it.
_ Don’t begin to draw conclusions.
_ I’ll be hanged if I do that.
_ Do me a favour and stick to plain English. I don’t have a fancy education.
_ Anyway, I’ll leave that for you to figure out.
_ Goodness gracious! Really?
_ However, I can’t be bothered with that.
_ That’s a perfectly wonderful thing to say.
_ What makes you think, I can answer that?
_ So what else is new?
_ I’ll bet you know all about him. Don’t you?
_ Excuse me, I’ll be right back. That’s better. So what we were talking about? I forgot.
_ Hey! Wait a second! What’s that hanging off your nose? - Just Kidding!
_ That makes a lot of sense.
_ Anyhow, I have a bigger fish to fry.
_ Really? Things could be worse, you know.
_ Not now. May be later.
_ I can’t argue with you there.
_ It is purely a matter of opinion.
_ Strictly speaking, that probably explains a lot!
_ To put it in a nutshell, or To cut it short, ….
_ You must be pulling my leg. But that can be our little secret, Right?
_ Hey! Stop using those filthy words or I’ll get mad.
_ I’m trying as hard as I can, but I just don’t catch. What you’re trying to say there.
_ I don’t think that’s any of your business.
_ Don’t make me laugh.
_ Are you kidding me?
_ That’s incredible!
_ Ridiculous!
_ The whole thing is unbelievable!
_ No. I refuse to do any such thing.
_ Excuse me. My head itches like crazy!
_ You’ve got one very foul mouth. Put a lid on it.
_ Stop talking garbage.
_ Excuse me, somebody’s at the door.
_ Could you translate that for me into plain English?
_ I’m pretty sure, I do not know!
_ Why?
I never bothered to find out.
_ How?
How should I know?
How you’d expect.
_ What?
I could loan you my hearing aid, but it doesn’t work very well.
Think about it. Guess what!
Come on. What do you think?
_ When?
When! When pigs fly. That’s when.
I don’t keep track of such things.
_ Who?
It was some body. But I can’t remember the name.
_ So nice of you. And it wouldn’t take a genius to figure that out!
_ That’s incredible! Did you think it up all by yourself?
_ If you say so. What can I say?
_ May be you are right.
_ I wouldn’t lie to you. But I wouldn’t want that to get out in public. Ok?
_ Obviously/ Really?
_ It may be obvious/real to you, but not to me!
_ What makes you think, I can answer that?

I do know there are other places where you can find this information, but I just wanted to share with you, something that I've received few days ago from my cellphone service provider. Many people -younger than older, are using the text messaging as the most quick and efficient way to communicate.

Your son won't pick the phone to answer if he/she realized is mom who's calling to say something, or to curfew him up. Yet this can be easily solved if they pick their cellphones just to discover mom again wants to know about her date, verbigracie. Her mom might sent something like 'king or frog' and that will be enough to think what she's into. Daughter can answer back 'king' and nobody has to feel embarrassed or justify why mom has to be calling at this time!

Here's the guide:

Basic:
YT? -Are you there?
< bs > -Big smile
4E - Forever
F2F - face-to-face

FFR - For future reference
ILBL8 - I'll be late
kThxBye -Okay, thanks. Good bye!
RB@U - Right back at you
PTMM - Please, tell me more
*vin -Starving
SC$ - Success

Advanced:
B3 - Blah, blah, blah
FTBOMH - From the bottom of my heart

HB2U -happy Birthday to you
TTYL -Talk to you later
Y3 - Yadda, yadda, yadda
MHOTY - My hat's off to you

Great list of more than 60 words no Johnny but journalists misspell according to the experiences of Roy Peter Clark:

acknowledgment: (The American Heritage Dictionary also permits acknowledgement, but prefers to drop that extra "e," and so do I.)

acquiesce: (The "sce" ending always gives me problems, as in reminisce.)

aphrodisiac: (Named after Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love. Would that make an afrodisiac something that gives you a desire to listen to "Earth, Wind and Fire"?)

appropriate: (Most words beginning with an "ap" are followed by another p; so if you've got to guess, go with app ...)

camaraderie: (I don't understand how we get from "comrade" to this vowely abstraction, but I learned how to spell it by following a simple consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel pattern.)

carcass: (I can now spell any word that ends with -ass.)

Caribbean: (You'll have to look up exotic place names, except for Lake Titicaca, of course. But commit to memory the ones you are likely to use most often: Mediterranean, Schenectady, Mississippi, Albuquerque.)

cemetery: (Just remember "three e's.")

congratulate: (Sounds like that first "t" should be a "d." You can see part of the word gratis in the middle, derived from the Latin for gift.)

colonel: (A homophone with kernel. Just remember "the colonial colonel.")

commitment: (But if the suffix begins with a consonant, as -ment, you do not double the previous letter. I remember this because of Roddy Doyle's novel about an Irish soul band: "The Commitments.")

committed: (A reliable rule is that when you add an "ed" to a verb ending in a consonant, you double the consonant: referred.)

conscience: (While homophones -- words that sound the same but have different meanings -- are always a problem, so are words that sound alike, but not exactly alike, which why we confuse this with conscious.)

definitely: (It helps me to see the word finite in the middle.)

diaphragm: (That "g" is silent in words such as phlegm, but can be heard in phlegmatic.)

dilemma: (After watching the weeping news editor, I can never misspell this one.)

dumbbell: (A bit old-fashioned to use for exercise weights or dumb jocks, but retains an enduring if politically incorrect charm.)

embarrass: (Two r's and two s'es.)

flier: (My high school team name was The Flyers, so I object to the use of flier to denote both the aviator and the leaflet.)

forty: (Go figure.)

gauge: (Tough one to remember, as is gouge.)

genuine: (Just take out your wallet, which probably claims to be "genuine leather.")

handkerchief: (When I was a kid, I was blown away by this spelling, until I realized it denoted a small kerchief, one you held in your hand.)

hemorrhage: (If you can spell this, you can spell hemorrhoid. Cheers.)

hors d'oeuvres: (Damn the French, except for the food, of course. Looks like it could mean the work of horses or the work of whores, but literally means "outside the main work." Yummy.)

inoculate (Most people want to add another "n." I remember the phrase "in the eye" because oculus is Latin for eye.)

judgment: (Now that I remember to leave out the "e" in the middle, the AHD gives its blessing, but not its preference, to judgement.)

liaison: (Three vowels in a row are bound to screw you up.)

lieutenant: (Now that I've learned the origin, I'll never misspell it again. It comes from the French word lieu or place, as in "in lieu of flowers." A lieutenant is a place holder.)

limousine: (Did I say something nasty about the French?)

manageable

millennium:(Misspelled a thousand times. It literally means a thousand years. The Latin word for year is annum, as in per annum or anniversary, which gives us the double n.)

minuscule: (I misspelled this until I remembered the word begins with "minus.")

misspell: (Always fun to get this one wrong.)

neighbor: (I learned this in fourth grade: "i" before "e," except after "c," or when sounded like -ay, as in neighbor and weigh.)

noticeable

occurrence: (One more time.)

paramour: (You say to your sweetheart, "Oh, you!" or O-U.)

perseverance: (A good severance package helps you persevere.)

(This refers to an event held for the first time, as in the premiere of a movie, but if you mean a head of state or the first among many, lop off that final e.)

questionnaire: (See rule under committed.)

pastime: (Baseball fans usually get this one.)

playwright: (Playwrite is the understandable mistake, until you learn that wright means maker, as in cartwright or wheelwright or wainwright or boatwright.)

pneumonia: (Not sure why that initial "p" before a consonant likes to keep its mouth shut.)

ptomaine: (Old, bad joke: If you get ptomaine poisoning, we may have to call a toe truck and then cut off your main toe.)

receive

reconnaissance: My editor alerted me to the fact that I misspelled this word in my first draft.

reconnoiter

relieve: (My mom taught me to remember certain ie words this way: You believe a lie.)

Renaissance: (Some words mark a specific historical period, but can be used in a broader sense, without the initial capital letter, in this case to mean rebirth.")

rendezvous: (Sometimes it helps to remember a foreign word by giving it a conventional English pronunciation, just for fun: "Sweetheart, let's have a romantic ron-dez-voos.")

rhythm: (Often paired with rhyme.)

sabotage: (I now know that a sabot is a wooden shoe that could be taken off and banged on a table to subvert work.)

siege

seize: (I remember seize and siege as a pair. If I say "seize the day," I know the other one is an "ie" word.)

separate: (People want to write seperate, but to a golfer like me, it would be below par.)

sergeant: (It appears as if care is needed with words of military rank.)

suede: (From the French word for Swede.)

supersede: (I never get this right. Grrr. Perhaps I can remember that the secret of success lives in the first letter.)

threshold: (The way I pronounce it, sounds like it should have another "h.")

thoroughfare: (Folks who learn English as a second language find the "ough" spellings and pronunciations a huge problem.)

traveling: (AHD blesses both a single "l" and a "double l" solution.)

vacuum: (Vacume would be too easy, and not as visually arresting as that double u.)

vignette

weird: (Seems to me that it should be "ie," but then the word is, after all, weird.)

Feel free to enlarge the list and in comments let us know which are the words that cause trouble to you.

I was reading this blog and I've found two words that suppostedly Mayor Bollwage used to refer to Spanish and Black residents:

Spook: Offensive slang used for calling a Black person.

Spic: Offensive slang for a Latino person.
