What has always frustrated me most of my life, especially when writing this journal, is the fact I cannot put my ideas into written form. What ever I write never seems to satisfy or even convey fully my thoughts even this journal entry.
It is not the fact I want to be a writer but more effective at conveying my ideas to others in a very effective way.
What I think did not help was the way I was taught English when I was at school which was a time when they did not teach the basic grammar but emphasised the creative side of the language. Frankly this was, in my personal opinion, the wrong way to teach English and I am still paying the price of this error!
After 15 years of working with Computer Languages it has become very clear much as a Computer language, a specialist subset of a language, you need to learn the basic syntax before you can create and write code. This in my personal opinion the written language should be treated the same in so much the basic grammar should have been taught me first before the creative side as it would of given me the basic tools to be truly creative and to express myself more effectively.
But as always I have to muddle on a result of the failure of our modern education system teaching our own and wonderful English Language in the hope eventually I will get more effective writing with practice which my journal gives me.
