The Next Steps

Dear readers,

Good writer, bad writer is over a month old now. I’ve fiddled and tweaked and things are still a bit of a mess, but I’ve taken the look of the site about as far as I’m capable of taking it at the moment.

So, I’m ready for traffic. I’d love to start building readership, and I’d appreciate any help I can get, which means two things:

1.  If you have friends or colleagues that you think would benefit from the blog, please start referring them. Feel free to share posts or links. If you use an RSS reader, you’ll notice I’ve now got a link to my RSS feed on the main page.

2. I’m anxious to hear your suggestions for content. What issues do you want see addressed on here? What are some problems you are trying to solve with your own teaching or writing? What’s most helpful to you?

Thanks for your help,

Shawn

Good Writer, Bad Writer

Good writer, bad writer reflects the philosophy behind the first writing lesson I attempt to teach students. Too many of them come into college believing that their writing abilities are set in stone. The bad writers continue to struggle, and the good writers don't take enough risks in their writing, figuring that any misstep will throw them back into the "bad writer" category.

Good writer, bad writer is my attempt to break the power of that dichotomy. On here, I share the lessons and attitudes that I teach, but I also talk about the attitudes I have towards my own writing since many of those have informed my own teaching. Thanks for visiting.
