The past couple of years I’ve studied to understand how writers write, and why readers read.
We live in an amazing time for those of us who seek knowledge. I found so much information retrievable with only a poke of my stylus or the click of my mouse the sheer volume of it overwhelmed me and often lead me astray. The questions soon arose in my mind: How can I tell when I am learning a rare jewel of writer wisdom? How can I tell when I am wasting my time, only learning an antiquated “formula”?
Time and study showed the way. I winnowed the jumble of information to only that I found most useful. Then I created a short list of web materials I believe most useful. Now, I try to revisit the material referenced in this list every day. I don’t know if this material will help an aspiring writer who happens across this page. What I know is, this material helped me.
See you on the pages — Charley
