After we generate a text, we must keep the three Cs of self-editing in mind, before we share that draft with our readers: Clarity, Coherence, Conciseness. This primary rule is what professional editors (should) aim at.
“The goal of text generation is to throw confused, wide-eyed words on a page; the goal of text revision is to scrub the rods clean so that they sound nice and can go out in public.” ~ Paul J. Silvia

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.
