The writing class I’d like to teach
Jason Fried

In university I had a writing course where every assignment was incredibly short. “Write why America should or should not have a national ID card in 300 words.” “Describe X in 150 words.” And so on. It seemed crazy at the time, but that’s the one class I credit the most with helping me be a better writer.

I think it’s time to try this exercise on myself again.
