    Have you ever stopped at the end of a sentence and thought, "something don't seem quite right?"

    Do you struggle with getting compete thoughts down on paper?

    What about question marks, exclamation, quotations, coma's, colon's, and/or semi-colons? Do it put you in a daze when its time to place them in their respective places?

    Well, I am proud to present "Our Very First On-line Writing Skills Class!" Brought to you by our very own Beloved Sister.

    WONDERFUL!

    Sister River I have been praising your intellect since I met you, and now I find out that you're fully accredited too! Will the blessings never end. I'm in the process of organizing my ideas, and selecting the material and target audience for my first book, and I will be much in need of a strong proof reader such as yourself. Would you do me the honor of lending your skill and expertise to the quality of my work? We'll knock em dead sister. Much love.

    Brothas and sistas of Destee,

    Be sure to return here. I shall prepare and post the syllabus for this course. Hey, I don't just do the right thing. I do the right thing right.

    Maybe we can get Destee or Purplemoons to open up a special forum where you guys can post and respond to the writing assignments I will give you. Nothing overly time consuming. I shan't ask you to write a dissertation. Just little things where you can practice what you learn and benefit from feedback. Knowamsane?

    River,

    My sister is currently writing a book on the behind scenes of what really goes on in nursing homes. She's been in this line of work for over 17 years and feel a strong need to speak out on a lot of things that go on that shouldn't. She believes her book will help put laws in place to change the standard and make those places a better place for those who have to use them. I said all of that to say this...do you ever proof read books? If you do, would you consider hers when it is finished this year? I would much rather have her pay you than anyone else.:hearts4:

    Hi sista Joyce,

    Sure I'd be happy to.

    I'm glad to have eager students. Even if you can't come to every class you can still benefit from the materials and stuff.

    This is going to be GREAT!

    Reading the objectives has got me excited and eager to begin learning.
    I'll have to present your request for a designated area to the administrators.
    I'll get back to you on that.

    In the meantime, those who are interested in this course, show some Love and post whether you'll be able to join us.
