Writing good is goodly but guitaring is importanter.

Actually ... guitaring is more importanter.

Shouldn't the title be: "How to write well." "Good" is generally considered an adjective for a noun, while "well" would be used as an adverb to modify the verb write. It seems ironic that this is the title for writing tips - from an old country boy.

Yes, a dangling participle is something up with which I will not put.
