How do I write something First?
You can’t plan it, and when the time comes you should be ready to do it. Often I get things which are old news, and I will blog about them if they are interesting. On occasion I will get a gem, something that I know that nobody has. This can be something as simple as a photo or video – which I redirect to Snypher – and it can be a wikileaks style leak – although that happens rarely. This is not like writing something Unique, this can be something which everybody will be writing about tomorrow. Just as long as I got it first.
Read It Out Loud
I was also inspired this week by an article Kevin Walsh wrote: Five ways to improve your writing. I mostly read my posts out loud to avoid exactly the problems, which often lead me to kill my darlings, as Kevin puts it. This ensures that what I’m discussing is clear to all who read the post.
