Welcome to Simple Writing
Simple Writing is all about writing tips, information, and ways to make your writing better.
Why “simple writing?” I like to be direct, to the point, and clear. No messing around. Writing isn’t the big mystery that many people think it is—it’s a craft, an art, a form of expression like other art forms. And it requires practice: the only way to write well is to keep writing and don’t stop.
All the other stuff—schedules, software, writer’s block, writer’s groups, writer’s circles, book signings, conferences, yada yada, this and that and the other thing—it’s all extraneous. Not that I don’t value or talk or write about that stuff; I do. But it’s not the main point. Writing is the main point. In other words, no BS happening here.
You’re either writing or you’re not. Writing makes you a writer.
I’m not only a blogger, I’m also a former college writing instructor and tutor as well as a freelance writer and copyeditor. Did I mention poet? Yep, that too. I’ve had a few poems published, I’m working on a novel, and I’m nurturing my creativity these days instead of focusing only on my practical, fact-finding (read non-fiction) side though I love both.
I’m constantly on the lookout for new insights, and I’m always improving my own writing—it’s a lifelong commitment for any serious writer.
Plus, with my goal of helping you become the best writer you can possibly be, what I learn, you can learn. Not a bad deal, eh?
Pull up a seat, grab your favorite beverage, and let’s get going.
All the best to you and your writing!
