    You know those stories where the ending comes out of nowhere and blind sides you with another-worldly force that saves the main character from certain death and annihilation? They’re frustrating right? Why have the main character suffer through countless trials and tribulations only to have a divine presence swoop in and save him or her?

    Think of the different voices you use in daily life. You have a certain voice you use with the boss, another one with your partner, and a completely separate one you save for your mother. If you’re a parent, you have several voices you use with your children. There's the stern, foreboding voice that shows your dissatisfaction or the loving, acknowledging voice that shows your approval. Then there is the voice you don’t even know is inside you when something scary happens to one of your children.

    On the surface, writing with numbers is a simple rule: write out numbers between zero and nine. However — as it is with all grammar — as you dig, the layers get complicated.

    Do you read tons of books, articles, and treatises on the craft of writing? Most writers devour these texts to improve their craft. But what happens when you’ve finished your manuscript? How do you distill all that information you absorbed from reading about craft into a plan to improve your WIP?

    How much writing do you do around the internet, besides your manuscript or content for clients? Think about all the emails you send, or maybe you’re prolific on social media. Or maybe you run several blogs on WordPress. A more pressing question is: How do you check your online writing?

    If I had a loonie for every time a Canadian writer asked for this, I would have enough for a dozen double-doubles AND a box of timbits.

    We think we have sorted out most of the Canadian spellings (color vs colour, etc.), but we don't want to stop there. We want the Canadian dictionary to include Canadian words and expressions. I've started a list below, but I need your help. Let's crowdsource this Canadian-style.

    Are you ready for NaNoWriMo?

    It’s the question most asked this time of year, right before National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) that takes over the month of November every year.

    If this is your first time doing NaNoWriMo, don’t stress out too much about it. It’s a huge learning process where you’ll discover what’s most important for you to be able to produce content on a continual basis to move forward towards your end goal of 50,000 words in 30 days.

    The biggest lesson I’ve learned over the years is that it’s not so much about the end result. What you have at the end of 30 days will in no shape or form be a novel ready to print. Depending on your genre, novels can be 80,000 words and up. Just understand: you won’t be finished with it on November 30th.

    Time in college is an awesome period of learning, which involves communicating ideas in writing. After all, how well you write is a valid indicator of intellectual achievement. However, many students find writing pretty daunting. 

    The thing is, like any other skills, writing is learnable with a lot of practice, patience, and focus. "You're born as a writer" is merely a myth, which can be proven.
