There are certain rules to writing well, right? Rules for writing faster and more efficiently, editing well, meeting deadlines, writing readable copy and doing all of the tasks associated with the various aspects of writing.
There’s a right way and a wrong way to do these things, yes?
Well, yes and no. There certainly is a best way to turn out copy, make it readable, do your editing, meet your deadlines and so forth.
But, since each and every one of us is a beautiful and unique individual, the way that’s right for someone else may not be the way that’s right for you. What’s worse, someone may teach you ways that are right for them but that absolutely are wrong for you…
Recently finished reading a book called Writing Your Way: Creating a Writing Process That Works For You by Don Fry. He tackles this issue of “the right way to write” and shows the reader an assortment of ways to tackle all of these different stages of writing, spreading out a buffet of writing techniques so you can pick and choose and fill your plate with the methods that work best for you.
It’s a fun and useful read, full of good ideas clearly stated. I’d recommend it to any author – and with this post, I have.
Check it out.
