If you don’t think you’re a good writer, I have three recommendations for you:

1) Write for clarity, not to impress people.

2) Start taking notes: Writing is easier when you save your ideas.

3) Nail the basics: Shorten your sentences and write like you’re talking to a friend.

Here are all my top writing resources.

Read these articles and watch your writing improve.


The first draft is the hardest part.

The rest of the writing process is just tweaks and refinements.

"You can always re-write it. You can change it. That's the great luxury of being a writer. We're not surgeons. The world does not hold us to our first pass."
