On writing

December 22, 2020

I am going meta tonight and writing about writing.

I have been reading "On Writing Well," an excellent match for this writing effort of mine, and it's giving me insights on how to produce great non-fiction.

Ultimately, the product that any writer has to sell is not the subject being written about, but who he or she is.

I have kept quiet for too long in life, and writing gives me this incredible outlet to tell my story in my own words. I feel alive when I write, and I have more space to be myself than in real-time speech.

Clear thinking becomes clear writing.

Writing is the ultimate tool for thought. No fancy venture-funded app needed.

Writing is hard work. A clear sentence is no accident. Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time.

Writing is the ultimate craft.
