A writing coach without a red pen

A writing coach without a red pen.

Check out this great article about William Zinsser, brilliant editor and writing coach, 90 years old and still helping writers! He says it so well — as a writing coach myself, I wish everyone knew the process could be made so much more easy!

People come to him in stages of typed-out paralysis, stalled, uncertain whether they have written too much or too little. He tries to help them organize their thoughts by condensing, reducing — learning what not to include.

“By talking to them, by finding out who they are, I bring out their own personality,” he says. “And ease their mind, for God’s sake.”
