I just had this quote on the side of my WordPress screen and thought it was great:
Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers. — Isaac Asimov
Love what it means about how writing is not just mechanics and conventions. Yes, those things are important, but more importantly it is thinking. It is figuring out what you want to say and how you want to say it. It’s deciding on who your audience is and how to best get your message out to them so that they “get it.” The mechanics and conventions are then the part you fix, as a courtesy to your reader, so that they can clearly understand what you’re saying.
What do you think?
