Writing Challenge: Day 5

Writing Prompt: What word, said or unsaid, has or could change your life? How?

At NAIWE, the word that has had the most effect on us is “freelance.” We focus on benefitting our freelance members, offering them avenues to remain knowledgeable in the field and to increase their number of clients. The NAIWE goal is helping our members develop multiple streams of income, and we do this by promoting their products and services to people they might not have otherwise reached through our social media outlets and our newsletter, which reaches 6,000 publishing professionals every month.

Interested in participating in the NAIWE writing challenge? Each day we will post a question. Respond to the question on your blog or social media page (be sure to include #WordsMatterWeek in your response), and then link back to it in the comments of the corresponding article on the NAIWE blog. For each challenge you respond to, you will receive one entry (and a bonus entry for each response written on your NAIWE blog). At the end of the week, we will have a drawing, and one person will win a fabulous prize, along with a mention and link in the next newsletter.

Writing Challenge: Day 4

Writing Prompt: Writers craft words into memorable phrases, stories, poems, and plays. What writers make your heart sing? Why?

We at NAIWE have an eclectic taste, with every member receiving at least one vote for their writing style making our hearts sing, and we enjoy reading the posts members put on their NAIWE blog. It helps us to get to know our members better and to look for more ways to help them develop their writing careers. Thus, the writers who stand out the most are the members who regularly post on their NAIWE blog and inspire us so much that we want to learn more from them.

Writing Challenge: Day 1

Writing Prompt: If you had to eliminate one word or phrase from the English language, what would it be? Why?

At NAIWE, we try to be positive and think about ways we can accomplish tasks. Therefore, the word we would like to eliminate from the English language is “can’t.” Instead of someone saying he can’t do something, we want him to be positive about the situation and say that he is working toward his goal but needs additional assistance or professional development. And that’s what we are here for! NAIWE is an association with a goal of helping you build multiple streams of income. We are here to help you develop your web presence and build your social media following. You can do it, and we are here to help!

National Grammar Day

National Grammar Day is an annual celebration to emphasize the importance of grammar. Some people suggest that grammar is a set of rules for language, but it is a system for understanding language. Understanding the system and the structure helps us to understand each other.

Established by Martha Brockenbrough, author of Things That Make Us [Sic] and founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, National Grammar Day is celebrated on March 4.

As writers and editors, we know the importance of grammar. It is something many of us are paid to use correctly.

What is your grammar pet peeve?
