SHARING AN ARTICLE: KURT VONNEGUT’S 8 TIPS ON WRITING

Someone shared this article with me, so I thought I would pass it along. These are eight tips on writing by the late Kurt Vonnegut. Here is the link:

I have read these eight tips before, but it never hurts to refresh.

Also in this article, there are links to other writers giving advice, including Stephen King from his book “On Writing,” which I still think is one of the best books about the craft of writing that I’ve ever read.

And “The Elements of Style” by Strunk and White is also mentioned in this article. I feel that this very slim volume about the craft and grammar of writing is indispensable for a writer. If you could only have two books about the craft and grammar of writing (even though there are so many other great ones), you couldn’t go wrong with those two I just mentioned.

Enjoy the article, and please feel free to comment if you want to.

P.S. You can always join my e-mail list by clicking on the “e-mail sign up” words by scrolling down in the blog. I am going to be starting a newsletter very soon with more tips, articles, updates, and … well, I’m up for suggestions on other content.

Hope this helps … and until next time …
