The Writing Edge for Business Writers: 1/30/15

  |   Better Writing Print Friendly and PDF

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 one or two pieces that I think will teach you something or spark an idea or two. This week I’m pointing you to pieces on writing as a tool of entrepreneurship and self-publishing.

From Tor Grønsund: Writing Is Today’s Currency For Good Ideas

“If writing in fact is today’s currency for good ideas, it should help you become better at all the above–a better programmer, a better marketer, a better leader–or more importantly, a more interesting human being. Here are five insights on why writing matters for entrepreneurs, and beyond.”

Wally’s Comment: Insights from Jason Fried, Paul Graham, Jeff Bezos, and Fred Wilson.

From WiseInk: 5 Myths About Self-Publishing

“In the wake of self-publishing’s meteoric rise in popularity over the last few years, there have been plenty of misunderstandings about the industry. Let’s tackle five of the most common myths about self-publishing.”

Wally’s Comment: It seems to me that the author considers self-publishing and indie publishing to be the same thing. I disagree with that, but even so, there it’s likely that you or someone you know subscribes to at least one of these myths.
