Chuck Lustig, from Exciting Writing:
“To me, good writing isn’t about following rules. It’s about following your heart and practicing the craft of writing every day. It’s about expressing yourself on topics you feel passionate about in ways that grip and energize others.”
I met Chuck at a DFWIMA meeting a couple of years ago and he threw me on his “Exciting Writing Advisory” newsletter list, and I have been getting it ever since. The Advisory is always packed with interesting thoughts on how to improve your writing, and every once in a while, Chucks rolls out a line that sticks with me (above).
