After years of writing for a living, I am going back to writing about writing. Old school. On this blog.
Why am I doing this? Well most of it is inspired by what I am NOT seeing around me. I am not seeing people write effectively in long form anymore. We live in a world of tweets, short attentions spans and 140 character punch lines where people craft sensational headlines to prey on the curiousity or basest needs of those who chance by.
To me it is the lowest common denominator. And I want to get back to good. Back to my roots. Back to crafting a blog old school. Sure, I may have to get the word out via social media, but I am betting that people will STAY for the writing.
Wordsmithing is a lost art. The creativity of pounding out quality writing can be taught. It can be passed on and that is my intention with this blog. I will use real world examples, but at the end of the day the goals is to create a Master Class in the persuasive art of writing.
