Read About Writing, Write About Reading: RR1

It’s a bit of a perplexing idea, don’t you think? To read about writing and then write about what you just read. It feels like it should be a nursery rhyme or a ride at an amusement park. I think Knight is right, just write:

I did enjoy his dedication, to the students who helped him write the book. I can also relate to the lede method and vouch for it as the best meet-your-deadline method there is. I usually start most of my writing this way, ending up with at least something I can call my own. I am not sure how I feel about the ask mom process. In this house, I am the mom, so there’s that.

On the grammar and the vocabulary, this is where I hope to get the most out of this book. I hadn’t realized until I read it here, that the English language purposefully dropped the sex of objects as it is commonly used in foreign languages. This is a plus in my book. Figuratively speaking, mais bien sur!

Generally speaking, I look forward to future chapters, as the read is easy and broken down quite clearly. Knight’s first chapter keeps the door open, suggesting, that yes, anyone can write.
