Lesson One – Step-by-step how to accelerate your writing for personal pleasure or by writing online.
First, a little about me. Do you know what it’s like believing you are dumb because that’s how I felt from kindergarten to 12th grade.
But that all changed when a counselor gave me a book about dyslexia in the 70’s. At that time our daughter, Heather, was struggling in school that year and the counselor thought maybe she was dyslexic. I went home that day and devoured that book in one sitting, only to discover, Heather wasn’t dyslexic, I was.
From that day until now I no longer believe I’m dumb but only have a unique learning style that creates advantages in a classroom, at a job, creating a blog or at home.
Anyway, I did NOT accelerate in school but today I’ll show you step-by-step how to accelerate your writing, whether it’s for your pleasure or by writing online. I’ve learned everything I’m about to tell you the hard way, through trial and error and firsthand experience.
Second, in 2012 I came across a book titled “The Dyslexic Advantage. Just the title alone resonated within me. That book transformed my thinking and I realized that I wasn’t dumb but had a unique learning style.
This book was written in 2012. On the back cover of the book, it says, “In this groundbreaking book, Brock and Fernette Eide explain how 20 percent of people-individuals with dyslexia—share a unique learning style that can create advantages in a classroom, at a job, or at home.
Using their combined expertise in neurology and education, the authors show how these individuals not only perceive the written word differently but may also excel at spatial reasoning, see insightful connections that others simply miss, understand the world in stories, and display amazing creativity.
Blending personal stories with hard science, The Dyslexic Advantage provides invaluable advice on how parents, educators, and individual with dyslexia can recognize and use the strengths of the dyslexic learning style in:
- material reasoning (used by architects and engineers)
- interconnected reasoning (scientists and designers)
- narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers) and
- dynamic reasoning (economists and entrepreneurs)
With prescriptive advice and inspiring testimonials, this paradigm-shifting book proves that dyslexia doesn’t have to be a detriment, but can often become an asset for success.”
Of all the books I’ve ever read about dyslexia, this one was life-changing for me!
