Wrestling with a 2,000-word essay is not unlike birthing a calf. A life is at stake here. Your job is to make sure it survives.
In Demian Farnworth’s experience, great writers have always been socially odd. They’ve resisted invitations to birthday parties from close relatives, pretended not to hear when people are talking to them, and even ignored phone calls …
So they can do this one thing.
Outsiders consider this behavior bizarre and anti-social. So be it. But it’s really just a pretty normal day in the writer’s life who wants to kick some tail and take names.
It’s all about getting better. One day at a time.
In this roughly 10-minute episode of Rough Draft with Demian Farnworth, you’ll discover:
- The aggressive work ethic of exceptional writers
- Two daily writing challenges that will make you a better writer
- When practice isn’t helping you
- What you should know before you join a critique group
