Become a Better Writer

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald

I learned of Steve Scott through a James Altucher podcast. Steve is the author of How to Write a Nonfiction eBook in 21 Days. He’s written over 40 eBooks and is known as the “habits guy”. Steve’s advice: Writing is a habit. Write every day.

Start a blog. Write angry letters to your neighbors kids telling them to keep of the lawn. Whatever. Just write every day. Simple, but hard to do. It’s thematic with advice you’ll find in books on writing like Bird by Bird and On Writing Well. Altucher’s book, Choose Yourself, also has some great advice on writing and self-publishing.
