“Turn up for work. Discipline allows creative freedom. No discipline equals no freedom.” A blog offers you creative freedom, to tell a story that’s relevant to your audience and that illuminates your unique perspective. Readers are entertained, perhaps learn and maybe start to develop a preference for the way you see the world and the way you approach thorny issues. There are, however, two inherent problems.

Back then, proofreading was an art unto itself. You couldn’t rely on spellcheck or Grammarly to help you out. It was old school all the way! (Full disclosure – I even had a dictionary and thesaurus on a shelf next to my desk!)

The second reading was for grammar and punctuation and you went through each sentence word by word, to make certain that you followed the “rules.” And then, fin
