Practical Writing Strategies to Transform Your Experience Into Content that Matters
THEANO PRESS 2022
Do you keep promising yourself to write but never quite get around to it? Do you delete almost as many words as you write? Do you write things that never get shared?
Nobody is born knowing how to write. Like any skill, writing improves with deliberate practice and attention. With growing skill often comes heightened enjoyment. This book will help you develop writing skill so you can share your message.
There is no single writing recipe that works for everybody, but successful writers rely on common ingredients. Play with the experiments in this book to find what works for you. There is a free workbook to take stock and find the next best experiment for you, available at the book web site, sitwriteshare.com.
13 Sit experiments will help you get your writing started, escape writers’ block, defeat internal gremlins, build habits, and find inspiration.
26 Write experiments will help you imagine your message, create a rough draft, and then edit in phases until your polished version emerges.
16 Share experiments will help you get support, publish, and spread your message to those who need it.
