(actually) writing good writing #writingTip @ErnieSchenck2

An old Communication Arts column by Creative Director Ernie Schenck recommended kickstarting creativity and the rhythms of writing by actually re-writing good writing by hand. I haven’t taken the time to do this as much as I’d like, and I’m not sure it’s improved my writing yet. Still, this was a nice piece I picked up while my hard drive was defragging (IT guys, is that actually a thing?…).

If nothing else, it provides a uniquely intimate look at writing you admire.
