Writers on writing: some Friday night links

There’s always so much to learn about writing from those who write for a business.  Here are some links you might want to check out:

  • An A-Z of tips for beating writer’s block from the folk at Polon Copywriting
  • Brian Clark at Copyblogger with seven writing sins to add to his classic post on the 5 mistakes that make you look dumb

I have to say the comments on Brian’s post from some of the grammar fiends out there made me a little scared.  Getting too hung up on grammar can get in the way of confident writing. The most important thing (IMHO) is to say what you want to say with as much clarity and simplicity as you can muster.

And you know even the best of us can make daft grammatical mistakes sometimes…

  • as Kenneth Davis reminds us in his confessional at Manage Your Writing.

Thank you Kenneth for the reminder that writers are only human.
