Want To Become a Better Writer? Follow These 7 Steps And Look For New Tools Every Day
Somewhere in a deep corner of my files, there is a single piece of paper with just a few words on it that changed my life as a writer and teacher. It was presented in 1982 to a seminar of writers gathered around a table in a decrepit bank building that served as the original home of what was to become the Poynter Institute. Donald Murray, a professor at the University of New Hampshire, argued that good writing sometimes felt like magic to the reader, especially if the reader was also a writer. But magical thinking was not healthy for writers. Better to think of good writing as a craft, a set of tasks and habits, a number of steps, a process.
