It’s the big question, ain’t it?

My credentials

There are a shit-ton of things I’m not good at.

NON-NEGOTIABLE #1: WRITE

Why aren’t you writing?

ONCE YOU START WRITING…

A side story

My apologies to stranger on the left — I’m sure that dish was delicious.

90% OF SUCCESS: WRITE WELL.

Are you even any good?

“Write Well” Rule #1: HAVE something to say

Most writing is bad because the writer says absolutely nothing.

“How do I know what to write?”

“Write Well” Rule #2: Fucking SAY it

a.) Do not operate from a place of fear

“Unlearn your constant need to be liked.”

(This account is private now.)

b.) Operate from a place of love

“Write Well” Rule #3: LIKE saying it.

“Write Well” Rule #4: Say it WELL.

THE OTHER 10% OF SUCCESS: EVERYTHING ELSE

i.e., Titles, post length, SEO, process, and all that other bullshit

“But… what matters the most?”
