I used to think the above quote was witty. I still do, but I used to, too.
Finding words at all is hard. Making them matter is even harder. I don't often succeed on the first draft, or even the fifth.
I believe good writing requires ego death. I'm not a world-class writer because I was born with a quill in one hand, an inkpot in the other, and a Shakespeare quote tatted on my forehead. I'm a decent writer because I don't give up on the fifth draft. I get to the tenth and I still might not be happy. I listen to the criticisms and input of my colleagues.
Good writing is honesty. Good writing makes you pause.
If you look through the content of this site, not all the writing is good. But at one point, I thought it was. It used to make me pause. Now, it doesn't make me skip a beat.
This is a collection of my work. It's a sales pitch. It's a way for me to step back in time and realize how far I've come.
