Hello, friends. This is Don Stewart. I just want to let you know that you can now find us at writingwhatever.com. Nice and simple, and a beautiful website.
We have been busy. At long last, we have added a Membership option, which offers great discounts and bonuses.
And we are especially proud of our newest addition, Twice-a-Week Writing, where I'll send you a short video about a great sentence or paragraph every Monday and Thursday. This is the kind of support that teachers and homeschoolers have been yearning for.
So take a quick jump over there, and let me know what you think. And I would love to hear your comments and concerns. Many thanks for your devotion to Writing Whatever.

Questions Asked Frequently
Q. Who should take this course?
A. The Writing Whatever program is sequential and works best if the three sections are studied in order. Schools using the program position the Sentence course between grades 7 and 10, the Paragraph course between grades 9 and 12, and the Essay course in grade 11 or 12. College students and adults generally follow the same sequence, as the later courses often refer back to previous lessons.
Q. What makes Writing Whatever so much better than what is being taught in most schools?
A. The approach that most schools use today is called “process writing,” which expects students to somehow arrive at competency through time-consuming trial and error, multiple drafts, and the advice of their peers, who are often no more skilled than they are.
Writing Whatever students have a huge head start when they sit down to write. They know how to organize their ideas, how to choose the best vocabulary, how to punctuate, and how to edit. They achieve better results, faster, and with far less pain and frustration. The self-esteem that comes with such accomplishment is immeasurable.
Q. You say that your course applies to all kinds of writing, and to all kinds of writers. How can that be?
Besides classrooms, homeschooling, and freshman college writing centers, Writing Whatever reaches out even farther. Perhaps you have been out in the world for a while, and you want to get back to college to finish your degree—but you’re afraid of writing all those papers. This will help. Or maybe your boss has pointed out that you need to work on your writing skills in order to get that promotion you deserve. This will help. There are so many other reasons for needing to write better, but whatever your own personal goal, this will help you get there.
Q. Do I get to keep the course?
A. Yes, everything is yours to keep forever.
Q. What if it just doesn't work for me?
A. No matter which version of the program you purchase, we want you to be happy with it. Please try some of the lessons, and contact us if you think we can help, but if after 30 days you are not satisfied, your entire payment will be refunded.
