A collection of writing tips

April 19th, 2008. Tagged: writing

A collection of writing tips here, includes advise from Stephen King, Paul Graham, Scott Adams and others.

In the end, if you want to write well I believe it all boils down to:

  1. write - daily
  2. edit - cut out needless words
  3. read - everything you can lay your hands on

It's so simple and yet we keep looking for the "secret". Same with dieting: all boils down to a/don't eat junk and optionally b/exercise. But we keep looking for the shortcut, the miracle diet that will allow us to "take it off and keep it off" while lying on couch on front of the TV.

  1. So true. However, I do think that advice only really applies to people who have a knack for writing. Talent can be honed. But writing is just like math — some people can do it and some can’t no matter how much practice they put into it. As such,a bad writer will always be a bad writer, but a competent writer may become a good writer and a good writer can possibly become a great writer.

  2. …or (as Alanis Morissette puts it) “fake it till you make it” ;)
