Great writing

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.” ― Robert Frost

I've three things on my plate: Teal organisations, marrying soul with role (the undivided life) and writing.

It's always been the case that I like to write, but it's only of late that I've decided to take my craft seriously. Yes, I know I've got to write more, but I've also got to study my craft -- I'm currently reading William Zinser's book On Writing -- so that: (a) I make fewer mistakes; (b) I understand the process of rewriting; and (c) I develop greater confidence.

The way I see writing isn't through the prism of publishing success (not yet anyhow) but to get better. A lot better.

Right now, I'm a dilettante. I might try to convince myself otherwise but a few random blog posts (actually several hundred) do not a writer make.

I may share some of my journey, but then again it might be better if I let the words do the talking.
