“Writing is thinking on paper”
Writing is chatting to someone else on paper if we can think clearly about any subject at all. Writing will always require plain old hard work – clear thinking – and the plain old tools of the English language.
“Decide what you want to do. Then decide to do it. Then do it.”
Writing isn’t easy and no fun. It is hard, lonely and words seldom flow. Rewriting is the essence of writing. A professional writer must establish a daily schedule and stick to it. Writing is a craft not art. To avoid going broke no one should run away from his craft because he lacks inspiration. There are all kinds of writers and all kinds of methods to write.
“Less is more.”
