Writing and Other Afflictions

"If it was easy, everyone would do it." –Jimmy Dugan, "A League of Their Own"

Good Writing

You want good writing? You want a great story? You want a lesson in how to build up your readers’ expectations, build tension, give them way more than they thought they were getting?

You want Gene Weingarten. You want the Great Zucchini.

(It’s a couple years old, but this is the first time I’ve seen it.)
