Good writing, it seems to me, is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone is unique; it is a fact that there is no one else in the world that is exactly like us. Therefore, it should be obvious that every person has a different understanding of what it means to have “good writing.” A sign to me of having accomplished writing a good piece is to fulfill several key goals. The writing must first be grammatically sound in the use of punctuation, spelling and flow. The words must be able to link together and form a cohesive whole. The writing must be able to keep the attention of the audience while leaving them wanting for more or willing to reread the piece to absorb it for a second time. While it should not be just a short post, there is no excuse to have it stretch meaninglessly onwards without much to offer in content. Do not force yourself to continue a piece if there is nothing else that can be expounded on. A story will come if there is a need for one, if there is none, accept it and move on to a new topic.
