Nikole Maroe's insight:

I read this article and as I went through I compared it to the lessons we learned in the novel, Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott, last semester. 

The tools this article gave out were a lot like Lamott's about improving your writing skills. 

The tools in this article were the following;

1. Proofread everything out loud.

2. Be concise.

3. Ask others to read your writing.

4. Practice, practice, practice! 

5. Use what works. 

 

Now they sound a lot like Lamott's but each description was different, which I thought was interesting, because there were defiant comparisons but also differences. 

I felt this article could have gone more in depth about the tools, and not be vague. Because without reading Bird by Bird, I would have not been able to make the same connections and comparisons as I did.

Those who have a regular meditation practice can simply add the writing immediately following it, and those who find it difficult to do traditional meditation will find this practice fruitful as the writing gives your busy mind something to do.

Meditation is not only sitting still in a formal way. Many activities can become a meditation as this article suggests.
