Managing my thoughts has become an important practice for me. It has led to me establishing a disciplined process of observing my thoughts. Filing them in order of their importance, and taking appropriate action from there. This way I send useless thoughts to file thirteen. Storing possible useful thoughts for use later. Then act on thoughts that benefit me immediately. It is so much quieter in my head these days.

With each publication in this series, I was giving you assignments to do and asked you to return these to me for editing. This way you sent in your effort, which I called a ‘submission’ and I send back a ‘correction’ to you. In doing this, you ended up with a comparison.
I am now going to change the system. In future you will not send in submissions, but I will publish my version of the assignment a week later and that way you can compare what you have done with what I have written.
If you have just joined us, you are free to submit the earlier assignments to us for correction, to help get you started.
As a means of keeping the candle burning, for those that are following the Why Write Series, I am printing a submission from last week’s 200 word assignment. Following the submission, Cindy and I worked on a correction – see the difference?
