Looking back at what I have learned over the 10+ past years, I have learned about writing and the writing industry. How I wish that I could be transported back in time to tell myself this information, but maybe this advice will be useful to you.

I hear writers talk about making everything perfect fairly often. It is usually an excuse. A book is not finished, because the person writing it is too much of a perfectionist. But maybe perfectionism is harming us as writers instead of hurting us.

The straw man argument is when you present a caricature of your opponent's argument. It is not good thinking. When we write, we need to be aware of our ideas and our biases so that we do not caricature our opponent or his argument.

I was wrong. A while back, I commented on Stephen King's idea of writing being hypnotism. He stated that it was self-hypnotism. I stated that it was not. After doing research on hypnotism and doing some careful thought, I really I had misunderstood the concept, and what Stephen King stated was much closer to truth than what I believed.

Laughter is said to be the best medicine. I don't know if that is true. I suspect it isn't. Though it is probably not the best medicine, laughter and humor are an important part of society. On this week's episode of How to Write Good, I talk about the importance of satire and parody.

Storytelling is often seen as something extra in the lives of individuals. What seems to be the case from my perspective is that the story is central to what it is to be human.

Every person has a different life. Some people start out with more benefits. Some people start out with more benefits. Some start out with less. Those who don't seem to be doing as well may have something in common: they are alone. When you are alone, you cannot do it alone. What people need to understand is that even if you are alone right now, you don't need to be alone.

"What is truth" is a question that has been asked in our culture for at least 2000 years. There can be situations where debate is needed, but there is an argument that does not need to exist between two groups: the philosophers and the artists.

Character development is something that can be difficult when writing. How do we make characters who come across as having depth and realistic? In this episode of How to Write Good, I talk about a different viewpoint when trying to craft good characters.

I often see writers who rely too heavily on plot outlines. These writers are often newer to the field. When you are looking at how your story flows and develops, here are some things to look at when you work through your plot.

After a week of dealing with his father being shot, Ezekiel finds himself in the shop again. Flashbacks to that day keep on haunting him, but he thinks he has a solution. And maybe it actually can be a solution if that solution does not destroy him first.

In these week's episode I take another look at art. I was recently working on another project that required me to dive into what art is. When looking into art and walking my way toward a definition, I found a good way to describe how these different artistic endeavors all fit together.

This video is a little bit about me, what I do, and who I think will enjoy my writing and podcast.

If you have never read any of my stuff or listened to any of my podcast, here is a quick overview of what I do and who I think would enjoy my content.

I run into a lot of questions about "how" to do specific things when writing. I believe it is important to understand the craft of writing and storytelling well, but I think we need to view writing creatively from a different perspective. The question we should be asking is not what is the best way. We should be asking another question.

I have heard many people wonder how some people are able to come up with ideas out of the blue. I have even heard major authors state that they do not know where their ideas come from. The goal of this podcast is to help you down the path of developing a habit of coming up with ideas (or something like that).

On this week's episode of How to Write Good, I talk about how it is often the case that we only see ourselves as capable of doing things that others around us have already done. What if instead of doing everything we dream of and instead of doing only what others around us are doing, we go one step above everyone else around us is doing and then working our way up one step at a time? Besides this, I talk about how we can continue to pursue our dreams and betterment while at the same time building into others who are weaker or aren't as far as ourselves.
