At times, we fall into the trap of using words that are far from being to the point. As readers, though, we want to understand the message fast. We must keep in mind that good writing must aim at clarity, coherence and cohesiveness – assuming our knowledge of grammar and its correct application are intact. Then comes brevity as an objective. Using familiar words in brief sentences will help us meet our readers’ interest in and desire for simplicity.
With this thought in mind, I would like to invite you to share your suggestions here as to how my own sentences may be improved. Are they stuffy or simple?

I am simply hülya. Life has given me several of the utmost valuable gifts: A daughter, a grandson and a granddaughter. Friends who are ready and willing to come to my rescue regardless of the level of despair I am in are also in plentitude. They are my cankardeşlerim, what we may call "soul sisters" in English. As for the post-birth acquisitions of some importance to some (or many) people, I fulfill professional functions as a Penn State Liberal Arts faculty; an incorrigible lifelong educator with endless enthusiasm to teach and learn; the Director of Inner Child Editing Services; a writer - poetry equals my life, after my child and grandchildren, of course. I am also a literary translator. When it comes to my worldview, I am a dedicated and devoted humanist.
