5 Elements of Good Writing

By August 22, 2011writing

Jack Hart provides some really useful advice in his book, A Writer’s Coach. What is good writing? Hart says that good writing:

  1. gets to the point quickly
  2. has personality
  3. paints a scene vividly, and transports the reader to that scene
  4. has flow and energy
  5. is clear and grammatical

I’m sure you can make your own list, or quibble with Hart’s. Seems like a helpful list to me.

P.S. If you want a better practice, use the 80/20 Principle to start creating radical leverage and massive ROI.

    Interesting that the paperback version (Amazon's price) is selling for less than the Kindle version. Something not right about that.
