"In the conversation about ideas — the clarification of an argument, the identification of a larger point to be made, the firmer realization of what I want to say before I start crafting the prose — the writing that results is inevitably clearer and smarter. Because I have opened my mouth and practiced using the words, I now set them down with more care, precision and patience (one writer friend has said there’s nothing like telling a lot of people a story, over drinks, for years, to refine its structure)."


And she's been able to gauge the response of an audience so the words and ideas make more sense to the listener, which means she can weigh the words and their cadence for the reader.

Most of you have to write something important, sometime. So you sit down, flip open the laptop and...freeze. Whether it's caused by panic or lack of organization, or if you just get stuck, writer's block can be painful and frustrating. Somehow you need to find the find the muse after she has run off.

The first 25: small projects

The 50: Challenging projects

The next 25: Almost impossible

 

Read the full article to find out the author's excellent suggestions, and more recommended resources. You can make a living as a writer!
