There’s a great interview of Seth Godin on Copyblogger. Worth a read, I’m still laughing from reading it.
The best line was when Seth was asked whether he writes every day. His response: “Do you talk every day?”
As all of you know, I’m trying out this writing thing (having read prodigiously all my life) and am really enjoying it. I write fast and as you know, not well, but I’m learning and hopefully I’ll figure it out some day.
Meanwhile, I have been writing like a madman for 18 months now and frequently end up sending somebody something that they just don’t read. I mean they don’t even get far enough to get turned off by my turgid and dense prose.
I’ve run into this problem before and used to be dismayed by the fact that many people don’t seem to like reading. Seth’s pairing of reading with talking made me realize that I shouldn’t be so upset. Lots of people don’t like listening either.
I’m not tired of listening to your writing … yet 😉 In fact enjoying your daily, eclectic yet connected sparks to my brain. Keep up the good work. TH
Tom. Glad you’re enjoying them. Some days the thinking flows and other days it’s mired in sludge but it is a good lesson in learning to write.
