Work Like a Dog at Your Writing!
I'm an Engineer.
Tops at all things mathematical.
Writing didn't come easy to me.
I'm still not worth a damn—but at least I'm articulate. And perhaps I've found my "voice."
Wanna know why?
Because I worked my ass off!
("Worked my ass off = Wrote a lot.)
Good writing matters!
(It can move mountains.)
(Odds are, neither you nor I will challenge Graham Swift, but we can damn well be much, much better than we are ...which matters.)
So: Work your ass off on your writing, from emails to Blog Posts to Letters to your Mum.
