Originality in Writing is Overrated
Benjamin Sledge

Thanks for sharing! I’ve been thinking lately about how to write in a way that is original even though the topic might not be.

It’s amazing how when you change the angle or approach in just the right way old information can be made fresh and new. That’s the art of writing. And a pleasurable aspect of writing for me.

I aim for originality in execution. And I work to wrangle in thoughts that try to convince me that it’s all be done before. If we let that stop us, there’s be nothing left to create. But I believe there’s always more to create, therefore I must be able to write about a topic in a new way.
