Welcome to the monthly e-newsletter of Mahesh Raj Mohan!

If we haven't spoken recently, my biggest news is that my wife Sara and I welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world last August. 

My second-biggest news is that I formally branded my writing/editing consultancy as Enlighten Writing.  In keeping with the theme, this e-newsletter will offer enlightening tips, specials, and information designed to make your marketing efforts easier.

This month, I'm highlighting a pair of promotions that I think you'll like, as well as a grammar tip and a mystery word.

I hope all is well with you.  If we haven't been in touch, I look forward to catching up soon.

Take care,


Grammar Tip

Affect and Effect

When I put on my editing hat, I'm always on the lookout for the "Ect Twins."

"Affect" usually means to "have an influence on" or it refers to emotions.

Ex:  "She was affected by the movie's plot."

"Effect" usually means "to have a result."  

Ex:  "Her notes had no effect on the movie's plot."

Mystery Word


No one really knows the origin of this word.

When people use it, they probably mean to say, "regardless," but they add an "ir" for some reason.

I agree with Merriam Webster's take on the word: "Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."

Hello/Welcome Back!

I've missed you!  If you're a past client, then I know we had a great time working on your project.

I will give you a 20% discount on any new writing or editing you need. If you've considered adding content to a website, buffing up your resume, dusting off your business plan, or you're thinking about something that needs just the right wording, then this offer is for you!

Let's work together again!

(This offer is good until May 31, 2013.)
