As a native speaker of the English language, some of you might wonder how I can write complex structures and still make some basic mistakes. That's easy. When I go on auto pilot and just jolt something down thinking 'Wow, it's so darned easy, it must be this way.' it's usually not. I started to write this blog to hang onto my English and, at one point, I stopped worrying too much about it. That was the final push for me to write. My verbal skills are good, but I am not perfect. My real strength is in creative writing. I am my own editor. If I really start wrestle with a topic, it seems that my English catches up and gets better.
There are times, when what I write is good as is and I might think that there is something still wrong with it. While other times, I just can't see the obvious. It always depends on the particular text. It's like ghost hunting. I might see a ghost where there is none or can't see one when it's right in front of me.
When it comes to writing this blog, I see myself as a street performer. It serves me as an inspiration. My visitors are passerby. Some will stop and listen and might enjoy my performance.
Note to self: write in complex structures
