12/6/13: The Writing Edge for Business Writers

Dec 6, 2013 | Better Writing

You’re a businessperson. You may not think of yourself as a writer, but you know that writing well can boost your results and your career. Naturally, you want to do better. Every week I point you to pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on Kickstarter, reading children’s books so you write better, and the allure of the print book.

From Danny Pettry: The Power of Kickstarter
“I always knew I wanted to write children’s books but needed a way to fund the project to make it happen. My dream became reality when I discovered Kickstarter and started my campaign.”

From Demian Farnworth: Could Reading Children’s Books Help You Become a Better Business Writer?
“I don’t care how old you are — 17 or 70 — as a writer you can benefit from reading children’s stories.”

From Nick Bilton: The Allure of the Print Book
“I didn’t want to start reading print books again, but I honestly had no choice. My dog, Pixel, forced me to.”

Sources I Check Regularly
