Quick Write 090611 “The Difference 1”

There are so many good writers and good pieces in the world. Organized, sophisticated, insightful, powerful, mature, cogent, clever, coherent, convincing, thought-provoking, inspirational – these are the adjectives which are bound to be dedicated to those accomplished writers and their writing. For me, a “masterpiece” is the writing that makes me want to write like that, import a writing style thereof, and reread and recite to fully enjoy the piece. Such pieces make me happier than anything else can make me in terms of English learning.

The differences or “gaps” between what I call a masterpiece and my yet-to-be-developed writing are too many to mention here, but the first thing that soon comes up to my mind is the variety and sophistication of vocabulary. Such writers select certain vocabulary for reasons, and the readers will understand the rationale for such word choices as they read the piece. I learn so many words that I’ve never known in trying to comprehend the writers’ intension, which is quite effective for building passive vocabulary. What I need to do to upgrade my writing is to further expand “active” vocabulary through reading good pieces, what I call masterpieces, written by such skilled writers while inputting the words used in their pieces along with the rationale for such word selection. And later, I should try using those words in my own writing.

Another difference is that the quality and depth of logic behind rendered thoughts and ideas. When I review my writing or contemplating the feedback from my friends, I often realize that the logic in my pieces is rather weak or just within self-contentment, and in some cases, fails to convey the true messages to readers or misleads them. I’ll need to pay more attention to the development of my thoughts while writing with the attitude that as if I were writing to someone who always opposes to my idea or not willing to read my writing. By doing so, I could gradually be able to write more cogently with more convincing logic. Besides that, I should read lots of, lots of good writing as comprehensible input with the attempt to transfer it to my output. (Continued)

I don't know why, but this mellow song always gives me a lift.
