這是Erin上周寫給我的信,徵詢她的同意後我與大家分享。 部落格是一個充滿各種英文學習資源的免費園地,同學們考後的來信經常能夠鼓舞其他的學員。其實我要強調的就是,不是只有100分才了不起,大家只要練習且努力了,靠實力爭取分數,無論有無破百,心裡都踏實。 Erin考前勤練獨立題目,所以才會得到G。這也是我鼓勵大家多寫作的原因。多年來的經驗告訴我,寫作跟口說只要勤練一定能有收穫。我自己苦口婆心勸說的效果不如同學來信有效。希望大家繼續寫,努力寫,一定要打起精神來寫。寫作其實有時候是煩悶的,所以需要那麼一點動力跟毅力。我自己就是在靠敲鍵盤謀生的人,身為一個文案copywriter與寫手Writer,我是個每天都要爬文的人,所以我了解寫作是怎麼回事。在你最沮喪且毫無靈感的時候,請記得史蒂芬‧金說過的那幾句關於寫作話:                                               當然還有先前鼓勵大家一定不要畏懼寫作的金句:
