Tellem

“Talk Talk Talk”

“I felt the coldness of my winter,I never thought it would ever leave”

Quite proudly I am a graduate of New Hampshire Technical Institute,Concord New Hampshire,with an associates degree in mechanical engineering.The year was 1970,not a good time for the economy of the U.S. so I sought work in any area where it was available.I eventually was employed as a tool design engineer the salary of which was $2.10/hr-WOW.That didn’t work so by chance I became involved in the construction industry and remained there a long time.

So,what does that have to do with me writing this blog-a lot.While in college one of my courses taught us how to prepare and write technical documents-resumes,speeches,presentations,that sort of thing.As a part of this class,we were taught a very simple but effective method of communication that was called the Tellem Method.It goes like this:

Tellem what your going to tellem:

Tellem:

Tellem what you’ve told em.

I have found that if I use this method or a modified version of it, coupled with my education in writing by “just letting it flow”, it is easier and more satisfying to write and enjoy writing.I'm in there somewhere!
