How important happiness  of mine is. Mas Katno Giri is really aware that he need happiness. Actually, up to now he feels that he is still hapyy. He is happy with his job, his family and with his society. However he could imagine that how happier if he can be a motivator for others. He is still thinking that he wants to be  an  English writer especially  for motivating  people.

Mas Katno really realizes that he needs to learn more especially in English writing. He must learn  from  qualified motivators. He often takes part in many works shop of writing. He always remembers about the advices of  his teachers:

MasKatnoGiri's teacher said : "Good morning everybody, , you are wonderful men. You have an opportunity to see me. I am considered by  all of you as  a qualified writer, it is not right. I am not a qualified as you thought before. Now I’m still learning how to be qualified.  But I always have a writing motivator, I always  remember my motivator's suggestions. He writes ‘INSPIRING  ADVICES, they are as  the following:

Think about why you want to write in English. Perhaps you think English is more popular and there are more chances for your books to become a best seller, or perhaps you have problems writing in your first language. Whatever your reasons are, if you have made up your mind that you want to write your novels, books, facts, fictions or any article in the English language, then there is nothing to worry about because a language becomes yours if you fully master the language.
Examine your current skill by doing a simple test on the internet. Search on the Internet for English literacy tests and choose one which suits your style. If you are living in country where people speak English then you must have an idea how good your English is, give yourself marks out of ten by judging your own skill in conversations and discussions. Once you have found out on which level your English stands, then find the root of your weaknesses in parts of speech such as grammar, spelling mistakes, vocabulary and most of all your style of writing. Writing mostly depends on your talent as a writer so you can easily improve your mechanics.
Make a list of things that you need to improve on. For example, if you need to improve your grammar then work out the best way to improve it. If you don't have time to join a class in your area or there is no course for your grammar needs then purchase some good English grammar books from the nearest bookshops. If you are in a condition that you can not afford to buy books then you can use the library. Also get the new editions of the Oxford English Dictionary and a thesaurus.
Make a habit to learn five new words every day using the dictionary and thesaurus. Write them in sentences using the grammar you are learning, this way you will learn the right usage of your new vocabulary. At first you might not notice your improvement but by doing this you can put new words in use and soon you will be able to see the difference.
Make a habit of listening to the news, it will improve both your English and writing abilities.
Start writing short paragraphs. Read your work and give yourself a treat by going out with friends to socialize or buy something new for yourself, this way your writing will connect to your social life.
Read lots of books, newspapers, and articles in English. This will help you convert your own writing ability into English writing ability. Reading other books will improve your writing style in English, bear in mind that you can't copy people's work, but you can always learn from reading, reading books might inspire your writing as well.
Start writing your story using grammar and spell check on the computer. Also, read your work and be your own editor, work with patience, ask your friends to read your story, get their critiques in order to improve your writing.
Talk to people who have English as their first language. This way you can learn how to write dialogue in your story.
Complete your work and decide if it is worth trying to publish. If it is, do not hesitate to send it to publishers. Do not worry about making it perfect before you send it because the publishing company has professional editors to do that for you.
