The secret to writing …
When we are clear on our thoughts on a subject, then the writing becomes effortless. I don’t think people have ‘writing’ problems - I think they have ‘thinking’ problems.
When we have something clear and concise to say on a given subject, then writing about it, is simple. So first, arrange/organise our thoughts; get clear on how we see a thing; what we think about that thing … then just write. Typing is just super-slow thinking.
This is why discussion and debate is good; it helps us crystallise and arrange our thinking. Life experience really helps, precisely because ‘life experience’ helps us clarify our perspective on things. If I was teaching ‘writing’ at school, most of my class would be constructed around talking things out, until students became crystal clear on their perspectives on a given subject.
In the same way that talking is ‘thinking out loud’ - writing is ‘thinking via the keyboard’. Clarity of thought is fundamental; the rest is just bells and whistles.
