I seem to be doing a lousy job of explaining myself to you. This is not the first time I've had to re-explain something I've written to you, and I don't understand where the failure is. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, have been a published journalist and historian for 25 years, so that means I have some ability to convey information in a manner that editors and published authors say is appropriate and accurate. But when I write for other folks, I seem to get one of three things: 1. Incomprehension 2. Vilification 3. Ridicule There must be something wrong with the way I write. I don't think I'm making myself clear to you in any way. No worries mate. Everything seems chrystal clear. Perhaps the only thing is: There must be something wrong with the way I write. tends to dent ones credibility due to the self doubt issue.
