Cynthia Johnson Interview
Grammarly blog caught up with Cynthia and interviewed her about her personal take on great writing, as well as her love for Grammarly as a writing resource.
How important has writing been to the success you’ve experienced in your career?
Cynthia Johnson: Extremely important. Writing is my voice and the one thing that allows people to get to know me, and it gives a clarity on what my expertise is.
Tell us about your background in writing, how and when did you become a confident writer?
Cynthia Johnson: I became a confident writer by writing. The first time I wrote an article for a major publication I was insanely nervous. It was practice, flexibility, and the opportunity to work with great editors that allowed me to become confident.
What do you look for in various forms of writing like emails, text messages, books, content? In other words, what does great writing look like to you?
Cynthia Johnson: Great writing takes the reader into consideration. Is your message clear to the person receiving it? Is it too long? Are they busy people? No one enjoys reading a message that was drafted for the masses or someone else. When I receive long-winded, self-serving emails and texts, I simply respond tl;dr (too long; didn’t read). In my opinion, the audience is number one.
What’s been your experience with Grammarly?
Cynthia Johnson: I love it. It changed my life. Well, it made my editor’s job much easier.
What’s your favorite part of Grammarly’s product?
Cynthia Johnson: It is extremely user-friendly, which again, is the most important part. It has also decreased the number of commas in my writing significantly. I had no idea how neurotic I sounded before.
Why did you recommend Grammarly to your massive social media audience?
Cynthia Johnson: I recommend it because it is useful and saves time.
Why is the mobile keyboard exciting for you to use?
Cynthia Johnson: I tend to text and type very quickly, so the mobile use helps me to complete sentences and finish words without the predictive text changing my word to something completely outside of what I meant to write.
Who would you recommend Grammarly and the keyboard to?
Cynthia Johnson: Everyone, especially my mom.
What would be your advice for people who don’t identify as writers but rely on written communication in their everyday lives?
Cynthia Johnson: Ninety-nine percent of all problems start with miscommunication. The more we communicate using technology, the more we need to focus on the delivery of our words. You never know how a misspelled word or grammatically incorrect statement can change someone’s opinion of you or hinder your opportunities.
How has writing helped you improve your confidence as a public speaker?
Cynthia Johnson: When I know that the audience has read my work I feel more confident that they understand and will appreciate the subject matter.
