This sort of tutorial is intended for you who have somebasics in English.
For the first example, if you want to check whether theright word is "below" or "bellow", just type the word in thesearch box.
Here are the steps:
Here are the signals whether the word is right or wrong:
-The search result shows a list of websites that use theword. In other word, if the word is wrong, the search resultwill show nothing.
-If you find that both words have search results, notice thenumber of websites that appear and compare both words.Usually, the right word has more search results.
-Don't forget to notice what is the language of the website.For example, the word "biz" and "bizz" both have many searchresult. But only the word "biz" is used in the Englishwebsite.
Sometimes some websites have typing errors. Be cautious aboutit!
The same technique can also be applied to check a grammaticalerror.
For example, if you are in doubt which one is the rightsentence:
"The brave man swam over the river yesterday." or "The braveman swam accross the river yesterday"?
Follow the steps above, but don't forget to put the (") symbolin the beginning and in the end of the sentence, in order that Google will not cut it.
If your sentence is too long, try to cut it.
For the above example, just type "swam over the river" and then "swam accross the river".
However, you should take care in checking sentences,because not every sentence can be checked with thistechnique.
One more thing, it is very difficult if you want to checkemotions of a sentence. For example, you can not checkwhether "Would you please...?" is more polite than "Will you please...?" by using this technique.
That's why you should use English everyday on any occassion, so that you will get used to it.

Writers can Grow to be Comfortable with Criticism
On my first newspaper assignment as a critic, I was well prepared to dish it out. I was less prepared to take it. Imagine my surprise when my witty, well-crafted critique drew a smattering of letters filled with name-calling and nasty words. It stung. Could the critic handle criticism?

Good writing is like sex. Two people are involved ? the writer and the reader. Bad sex usually satisfies only one person, most preferably, the writer ? the person who leads. Good sex not only satisfies both people, it pleasures them. So, like sex, writing must have all vital points that reach unto this pleasure ? movement, foreplay, sensitivity, rhythm and climax. When a writer carefully and logically includes all these aspects, the reader is pleasured, satiated and gratified, but when a writer ignores them, the reader feels that the writer is impotent and he abandons him after that one night. Good writing is about making a person desire to read.
